New Clips: Mariah & Deichkind

Just catching up on the new music videos that have been released during the last couple of days.

Here’s Mariah’s new clip. Or better The-Dream featuring Mariah in My Love. The intro has Mariah and TD fighting over da dough. Mimi: “You wanna make it about the bills? It’s all about the bills now.”

And there are out takes of the fighting scene, posted my Mariah’s husband. TD: “You with your fake Louis Vuitton belt on. With your fake Gucci shoes on.”

The new Deichkind video is again directed by the brilliant Alex & Liane. This time, they have hired a bunch of male plastic models to lipsync the song Luftbahn (Airway as in We’re driving with the airway through the night). The ├╝bergay models show of their gym bodies later in the clip, using Nutella to write Yes and No on their robo-skin. There are Joe Dallesandro references & super cute animals. WATCH IT.

In very sad news Deichkind’s producer, Sebastian Hackert, responsible for the kids sound, passed away in February. The band has not yet decided if they are going to continue Deichkind.

A Highly Advanced 3D Text Message of My Future Self

Finally, last night I saw some Ryan Trecartin. His 100 minute video I-Be Area kept me on my toes. So much fun to watch, too many lines to remember. I wish my reality was more like that. Identity switching, walking through walls, baby stealing(?), blotchy make-up, sped up voices, repeated dialogue. What’s there not to like?
Ryan Trecartin plays a lot of the characters himself, over the top gay pronunciations or a Southern accent included.

In this clip, I-Be2 (played by Trecartin) appears at around 3:15, becomes Oliver and changes his name to Amerisha

All of Ryan Trecartin’s videos are on his youtube page.
