VIDEO: Oddisee 'You Grew Up'

Oddisee has always been an insightful lyricist, but in the case of 'You Grew Up' he is on another level.  The song comes from The Iceberg and looks at some of the things that influence the loss of innocence.  It happens to everyone between adolescence and adulthood, and it's depicted here by Eugene and Louise.  The creative studio does an incredible job showing the transition.

Beth Ditto: 'In And Out' Animated Lyric Video

Beth Ditto's song 'In and Out' comes from her album Fake Sugar.  It's her latest solo album, and the video is a beautiful animated compliment to the song.  Complete with the lyrics, the visual elements are not the first thing we'd dream up for this song but that's why it's so cool.  The sound of Beth Ditto defies classification based on era or genre.  The animated love story shows an unexpected level of what a universally relatable song 'In and Out' is.  With an unforgettable voice, and something timeless and mysterious about her, Beth Ditto is one of the coolest artists out there in this day and age. The video is produced by Digital Twigs and animated/illustrated by Forrest Norris III.

VIDEO: Open Mike Eagle & Paul White - "Dang Is Invincible"

"Dang Is Invincible" from Hella Personal Film Festival by Open Mike Eagle and Paul White.  The video for this track is the work of Studio Doulzia.  It's a 2D animation studio focused on creating feature film animation reflective of groups unfairly censored or underrepresented in media; POC and LGBTQ people, while refining Doulzia’s house aesthetics.  Doulzia founder Alex Pierre directed the video outlines the vision for the project: 

“Conceptually the video parallels Mike's stream of consciousness and the narrative style of rap. The video follows Studio Doulzia's Noul (the protagonist of their film concept Skeletonblood) moving through train cars in a New York Subway Q Train. Noul anxiously looks for a train car where she can feel at ease, her journey speaks to finding assurance and humor in the subtle unfamiliarities that exist within the atmosphere of intimate settings like train cars, that otherwise could make a person feel vulnerable. The song felt really visceral, and we wanted to capture that as much as we can visually.”

The video really is a perfect match for one of our favourite tracks from this album.  Get Hella Personal Film Festival here.
