By now you all know that OK Go like to make out there videos that tend to be some of the most entertaining ways to put across their music possible. The last video we saw from them took 4 months of prep and included thousands of instruments in the desert for their track "Needing/Getting". Today we get a little more of a subtle video from them with a colour matched couple dancing beautifully to the OK Go track "Skyscrapers". Directed by Trish Sie see what you make of it up at the top of the page.
The boys of OK Go have returned with yet another out there video, this time it's for their track "Needing/Getting" and it's as crazy as you'd expect. Recorded across a couple of miles in the desert outside of LA, the band set up 1000 instruments and customised a A Chevy Sonic with retractable pneumatic arms designed to play the instruments as they speed past them. Damien even took stunt driving lessons to nail down the skills needed for the driving! 4 months of prep and 4 days of shooting and the results can be seen at the top. Cool video but is it a Chevy ad with OK Go soundtracking or an OK Go video with a little help from Chevy? Let us know what you think.
Starting today, the Holiday Hunger Bundle, a charity project created in conjunction with the Feed Them With Music charity, is open for music fans to bid on four tracks from of Montreal ("Feminine Effects"), OK Go ("All Is Not Lost"), We Are Scientists (an acoustic version of "Central AC"), and Drive-By Truckers ("The Thanksgiving Filter"). Donations for the Holiday Hunger Bundle are up to those donating, but every dollar donated equals one meal provided to someone in need. Also, if they are able to meet their goal of delivering 10,000 (that means at least $10,000 in donations) meals delivered, they will release an original unreleased Christmas song from The Postelles. And, if that wasn't enough incentive, the top donator will receive a marching hat and outfit used in OK Go's video for "This Too Shall Pass." The Holiday Hunger Bundle charity project will be running for the next week, so head here to start donating now. As well, below, you can stream of Montreal's charity exclusive "Feminine Effects."
Last week we got to be thoroughly entertained by OK Go and yet another fun filled video they treated us to. It could be said that the humour and laughs did indeed come from those felt covered critters known as the Muppets though! Last night they took their "Muppet Show Theme Song" to the masses with a performance on Jay Leno's late night slot. Thanks to our good friends over at the Audio Perv you can now watch the performance over and over again at the top. YAAAAAAAY.
With a little help from the cast of felt critters that are the Muppets, OK Go have unveiled the video for their contribution to The Green Album. The video sees the Muppets wreaking havoc on shoots for previous OK Go videos including the video that shot them to fame, you know the one with the tread-mills?! Later on in the video though the roles are reversed as the members of the bands have there control taken by the puppets who have their arms well, you know, where us humans would put our hands if we were to make a puppet move.
They've done it again. When you think of cool music video ideas one of the first band name that comes to mind for me is always OK Go. They're always trying to do something cool and different and I've got to give it to them they mostly succeed in their aim! I doubt we'll ever get just a normal ass video featuring just a performance or something but hey, who knows. Today you can view their latest creation and it comes with a little help from the Pilobpolus Dance Company. Creating a to be expected interesting visual for the track "All Is Not Lost" which featured on their album Of the Blue Colour of the Sky.
The kaleidoscopic like video will have your head in a spin as it multiplies in size growing up until 12 separate windows of lycra suited bodies adorn your screen. That's not all though, having teamed up with Google too they've created a new HTML5 experiment which, if you head on over to AllIsNotLo.st will all become clear. You can create your own message within the video and do so in English, Japanese, or any language using the Roman or Katakana alphabets, and the message is incorporated into the dance. Always pushing the boundaries of what is deemed normal in music videos the band also paired up with Nintendo 3DS and you can watch it in 3D if that's your kind of thing.
During an event that took place last Monday (4/25) at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Amanda Palmer, Neil Gaiman, Ben Folds, and Damian Kulash (OK GO) joined forces and attempted to write and record 8 songs in 8 hours, cleverly calling themselves 8in8. They managed to put together 6 songs, which you check out in the player below. If you find yourself enjoying the jams, head over to Amanda Palmer's Bandcamp page and grab the tracks for a whopping $1. All proceeds go to the Berklee City Music, which provides free music education to underserved teens.
Those fun loving boys are back with a brand new track for us all to enjoy. The track is titled "The Greatest Song I Ever Heard" and features in the upcoming Morgan Spurlock movie POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold. If you've ever watched Super Size Me you'll get the kind of film this is sure to be. Based around the advertising industry, the film is being funded by using over-the-top product placement throughout the movie. You know like that scene in Waynes World but for the entire movie!To go along with this whole idealism the OK Go gents have created a track to match which is now available to hear after the jump courtesy of RollingStone.com. No video frolics or distractions just a track to sit back and enjoy.
