Film At 11: Mark Lanegan Band

YouTube Preview Image

There are tons of artists who come and go throughout the music world, but Mark Lanegan is sure not one of them. The Washington native carries a special place in our hearts with his brilliant pieces of work throughout the years, most recently with 10th album Gargoyle (Heavenly/PIAS), credited to the Mark Lanegan Band. Be sure to give your attention to his new video for “Emperor.” Filmed in Estonia, the clip switches back and forth between two men: one who’s just escaped from a close call with death, the other facing a mirror with a knife. Says director Joshua Lipworth of the video, “The story is based on the desperate final hours of a dictator ousted by his own people and loosely based on the fall of Ceausescu, the Romanian dictator. Firmly in denial of his desperate circumstance, he marches steadfastly toward his tragic demise.” Check out “Emperor” now.

Film At 11: Field Trip To The Moon

YouTube Preview Image

The name Steve Barron might not mean anything to you, but you are certainly familiar with the director’s work. He is the man responsible for three of the 1980s’ most iconic music videos: a-ha’s “Take On Me,” Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and Dire Straits’ “Money For Nothing.” as well as films such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Coneheads. Now he’s back behind the camera for the latest video from Field Trip To The Moon (a.k.a. singer/songwriter and actress Angela Christofilou and guitarist Dan Cross). The clip is for “YOU,” off the duo’s self-released Something Owed. Says Christofilou of the track and video, “‘YOU’ came from a relationship I was in and from a place of anxiety and panic attacks, which is what the theme of the video is sort of based around. Running away from one’s self. The sort of fight-or-flight response. We didn’t have much of a budget for the video, really. Everyone who worked on it did so as they loved the song, and Steve Barron came on board to direct it which was great. I met Steve at an audition for an acting job, we talked about music, so I later just sent him the song and asked if he would do a video for it, and he was up for it. It was filmed in two days.” We are proud to premiere “YOU” today on magnetmagazine.com. Watch it now.
