Shit Robot’s “Losing My Patience”

I recently saw Shit Robot open for LCD Soundsystem on one of their “we’re putting LCD Soundsystem to rest” dates at Terminal 5 here in New York City. This video, filled with arrays of multicolored LED lights, calls to mind his live show though the meticulous stop motion animation of the video is in a class by itself. And, if you’re into mechanical synth music (and who isn’t these days?), then you’ll certainly enjoy the song which features vocals by Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor.

Hell, you might as well go out right now and pick up Shit Robot’s 2010 release From the Cradle to the Rave. You won’t be disappointed. If you are, I sure don’t want to hear about it.

Peter Pringle performs “Nature Boy” for Voice & Theremin

WHAT. I mean, WHAT?!

Let’s make a handy bulleted list of all the things I like about this video, simple as it is.

  • A song by Eden Ahbez (YES!)
  • Theremin (YES!)
  • Opening scrolling titles (YES!)
  • His name is Peter Pringle (ALLITERATIVE!)
  • His haircut (UNFORTUNATE!)
  • Soft focus (DREAMY!)
  • The blue-ish hair light (WEIRD!)
  • The feeling his gives it (AFFECTED!)
  • The weird little way he closes he eyes at the end and then opens them just before the video fades out (CREEPY!)

Am I wrong in enjoying this video as much as I did? Does anyone else see the genius in this weird little piece of internet ephemera? Am I losing my mind?! PETER PRINGLE?!!!?!?

Queen’s “Another One Bites The Dust”

Because it is Tuesday and we all need a little mustache today. Look at that thing go!
