Bjork gives us another strange one from last year’s app-based Biophilia. Directed by biomedical animator Drew Berry, together they created a somewhat scientific representation of the song: a powers-of-10 exploration of the microscopic anD molecular landscapes inside Björk’s body. Yeah, it’s weird.
OK, the lineup for this year’s Primavera Festival is outrageous: A$AP Rocky, AraabMUZIK, Atlas Sound, Beirut, Björk, Black Lips, Danny Brown, Death Cab For Cutie, Death Grips, Dirty Beaches, Girls, Grimes, Hype Williams, Japandroids, Justice, Liturgy, Mazzy Star, Melvins, Napalm Death, Neon Indian, OFF!, Real Estate, Refused, SBTRKT, Sharon Van Etten, Spiritualized, The Cure, The Drums, The Rapture, The War On Drugs, The xx, Trash Talk, Washed Out, Wavves, Wilco, Yo La Tengo and about a hundred other bands.
Foo Fighters, Bjork, Arctic Monkeys, Band Of Horses, MGMT, TV On The Radio, Skrillex, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Foster The People are tapped to play the second year of Lollapalooza in Chile and the inaugural year of Lollapalooza Brazil.
This Week: James Blake brings Enough Thunder; Future Islands’ third album is solid; Bjork is weird and wonderful; Still Corners’ dark lullabies.
While Bjork’s eighth studio album, Biophilia, has had its release date pushed back, the Icelandic princess has given us another bizarre / beautiful single in the mean time.
Biophilia, the new album from Bjork, arrives in late September. Here’s the first video, which reunites her Bjorkness with favored director Michel Gondry, who shot some of her most famous clips.
