Videos of the Day – week of 11/18

11/18 – cool track & story behind this new video from Blood Orange aka Devonte Hynes: “I decided to visit Georgetown, Guyana for the first time, the town where my mother is from. She, herself has not been back for 30 years, 3 years before I was born. I tracked down family members, including my 92 year old grandfather, who I had never met before. In this video you will see our first ever meeting.
The wonderful female vocals on this track are performed by Caroline Polachek from the band Chairlift.”

11/19 – Shelby Lynne has a new Thanks EP coming out 12/10…this is the type of sound & setting in which she thrives…just groovy, country/soul with no muss & fuss!

11/20 – Ok, this one might take the cake for the best…video…ever! Not just because it’s Bob Dylan, or because it goes with a song that’s nearly 50 years old, but because WE ALL (me definitely included) WATCH TOO MUCH TV!!!

11/21 – and Queens of the Stone Age also unveiled an “interactive” video this week…I couldn’t get the thing to play via Explorer or Firefox, but you can try here, otherwise this is the plain ol’ YouTube version.  It’s only impressive & “interactive” if you have the most up-to-date browser & software, I guess…oof.

11/22 – here’s U2′s new lyric video for “Ordinary Love”

Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school. He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.
