Due to the most recent video directed by Mr. Gavras for Jay-Z & Kanye West’s “No Church In The Wild,” I figured it was time for a post dedicated to his stunning visuals. The Athens-born 30 year old French director has a knack for high energy, gritty, controversial music videos. He has the ability to take a song and transform it into something formidable. The visuals and the storyline make it impossible to turn away for even a couple seconds. Warning: The videos are very intense and include violence and nudity. NSFW.
Ingrid Michaelson released Human Again Tuesday and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Fill with the whipped butter tracks, light and fluffy, but her records never go without spreadable cream cheese, thick and complex. Tyga geared up a Garry Marshall-esque All-Star cast for his “Rack City” Remix. A couple smooth rollers from Mr. Ocean & Memoryhouse.
