Massive Attack – The Spoils ft. Hope Sandoval

Massive Attack recently teamed up with Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star) for a new track , The Spoils, and now they also released a follow up video for it, starring Cate Blanchett.

The clip directed by John Hillcoat shows Blanchett’s head being gradually and slowly transformed until it turns into stone. As sad and deconstructive as this process might look like, along with the angelic Hope’s vocals, it actually leaves you with some sort of a resurrection feeling. Tempting to say, a Hope feeling.

The Spoils was released along with another song, Come Near Me, on Massive Attack’s new 2-track EP.

Grimes – Flesh without Blood/Life in the Vivid Dream

 

The queen of quirky synth-pop Grimes has just shared a self-directed double video for “Flesh Without Blood” and “Live in the Vivid Dream”, both from the upcoming album, Art Angels (out Nov 6). This clip is filled with so many colours that is worth watching even if you are not a big fan of her new pop-ish style.
