Champion of 1980′s slanted electro beats Kavinsky gives us this music video for the track “Odd Look”, where Mr. Testarossa comes to save the day. Kavinsky was made famous for his retro electro in his excellent song and video for Testarossa Autodrive, and more recently, for the track “Nightcall” featured in the move Drive. In fact, I’d almost veture to say the entire move Drive was somehow influenced by the Kavinsky “1980′s sports car hero” ideal.
Grainy pixelated images of sexy nightlife compliment hazy droning music in the music video for “Kiss Land” from The Weeknd. The full uncensored, adults only “director’s cut”, can be seen over at Weekndhq.com. It’s quite a bit longer and really a whole different thing. Interestingly, while the directors cut leaves you saddened by the sex and drugs, the public shorter version almost seems to glorify it, even as singer Abel Tesfaye croons in your ear, “This ain’t nuthin to relate to..”. Digging the Asian iconography.
