Just because Milwaukee UP is done doesn't mean that I'm completely going to fall off of the face of the earth. When I come across something that I think is cool, I'm going to share it with people, because that is still something that I feel is worthwhile.
First, I must ask you a question: Have you seen the new music video for the Altos song "Altos, Altos, Sing (For Trouble)" directed by Sean Williamson and shot by Erik Ljung and Jon Salimes of Milwaukee's High Frequency Media?
If you answered "no" to that question, then you are certainly in for a treat!
The video shows the various members of the group, either waiting for something or searching for something and then at the climax of the short film ... nah, I'm not going to tell you. Just watch it.
If that wasn't already enough, Logic & Raze have released their Jack and Nick Packard-directed video for their song "Eye Gee Oh" and OH EM GEE this music video is something serious, fierce and frightening.
The editing is slick and even elegant when certain movements are combined to the rhythm of the beat.
Be prepared, these is a body in a body bag and that body does talk.
I can't embed it, so follow the link and enjoy.
