Hundred Waters’ new album Communicating might be out digitally, but its physical release won’t be arriving until this Friday. This means, I won’t be able to receive my CD copy of the album for a few more days. The wait is tormenting. After all, I’ve loved this Floridian art rock and indietronica band for awhile now, and I can never resist Nicole Miglis’ gossamer and ethereal voice. The stunning video for album single Firelight will more than tide me over in the meantime. Artist and director James R. Eads has created a beautiful animated film utilizing big-brush drawings. It’s a fine accompaniment for Hundred Waters’ shadowy yet fantastical, entrancing and soothing lullaby, a gorgeous minimalist composition that oozes such twilight magic. Order your copy of Communicating from major retailers, here.

OFFICIAL VID: Killer Mike – Untitled

August 22, 2012

This video and the flow in the song are dope, so I had to share. Atlanta rapper Killer Mike dropped this art inspired video today with Scar on chorus vocals. Untitled is off Killer Mike’s album R.A.P. Music. The video has them reproducing a bunch of Caravaggio paintings. Paintings and painters are referenced a multitude of times in the verses, so it only fits. I don’t usually associate fine art with rap music videos, but mad props for making it work!
