Coldplay’s innovative, awesome interactive video

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014 by Rachel

coldplay interactive ink video Hey guys. Long time no talk. Coming back to you all after being abroad a little bit early to rave about the new Coldplay music video; it’s just that awesome. This new video, for ‘Ink’ off Coldplay’s most recent album Ghost Stories, takes it’s viewers on an interactive journey following a man’s dream for love and happiness. About every ten seconds or so the viewer, player is given a choice or a path that will lead our main character toward a new horizon and will significantly change his fate and his chances at love. This incredible video, designed by Blind, offers about 300 different music videos in one with it’s many options for it’s character to fulfill. This type of video raises the bar in the world of music videos and gives the listeners so much more involvement in the music they love so much. It’s very engaging and adds an awesome new level to the experience of listening to good music. Innovations like these allow artists to bring their followers just a little bit deeper into their crazy worlds, and I am a fan.

Interact here!

Waka Flocka Flame Waka Flocka Flame & Riff Raff

10/28/14

Baltimore Soundstage

Last Tuesday, Waka Flocka Flame and Riff Raff joined together to give one heck of a show for Baltimore. The concert was at the Baltimore Soundstage which was chock full of diverse fans and raging front rowers’. Coming into the show I was immensely skeptical of the show due the somewhat poor lyrical quality of the two artists. That being said, I could have never been more wrong in my life. (more…)

Review: Caribou – Our Love

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014 by Courtney Kozieja

caribou-our-loveby: Kathleen McKeveny (Our Belgian Correspondent)

Dan Snaith operates in subtleties. And he does it better than everyone else.

Arriving on the electronic scene in the late 90s, the Canadian-born composer turned the so-called IDM (intelligent dance music) movement on its head. This is his game—take what exists, tear it up, make it better. Snaith is permanently evolving and reinventing himself. While guised under the various stage names of Manitoba, Daphni and Caribou he has done everything from shoegaze to krautrock and back again. No matter the name, the project is the always the same for Snaith: to produce fully developed, deconstructed soundscapes to dance to.

alt j alt-J: Musicians or Storytellers?

Release Date: 9/22/14
Rating: 9/10

alt-J’s second studio album is more than just a collection of songs. It is a holistic work of art, which has lately become something of a rarity in popular music. This album not only succeeds musically, but also as a piece of poetry, and a true example of innovation in today’s music scene.
