Dig

This is a music video to the song Dig, which is off Incubus’ most recent album “Light Grenades”.

I’m clinging to the song; but I hate this video.

I think it looks cheap, low quality, a lot of shit (like). And I don’t think its because I worked with HS, master of the dance photography. The shots of the dancer in Dig were poorly composed and sloppy! Paul Fitzgerald would make this director cry.

I say this with pride: I know if we were asked to make this, we would have done such a better job.

Nonetheless, I’m looking forward to listening to this album more especially when I try to fall asleep at night, because it is described as such: ” rhythms crash and the guitars wail, this is serious music, but they have a lighter touch.” Pandora.com

I wonder who writes these blurbs for Pandora.com because they are quite good.

More:

“Often, they use trippy, vaguely psychedelic soundscapes to set a tone that they later blast apart with tightly focused blasts of fury, such as the skittering “Anna Molly” or the intense two-minute ballast of the title track — or even how the acoustic introspection of “Earth to Bella” is ripped apart by shards of noise, not unlike Radiohead‘s “Creep.” – Pandora.com

May I add skeet skeet of the week to Brandon Boyd and his bassist is a fox too.

    I know nothing about cameras and lenses and all that who-jumma-jiggery you people do, but even to my untrained eye, the quality of film seemed extremely cheap in addition to how leaden the direction was.

    Good song though. I love the sparse bass line during the verses.

    I particularly like how they keep the camera as far away as possible from the guitarist with the difficult hair. Don’t nobody want to spend a week cutting out his afro from the greenscreen.
