Today we have the exclusive premiere of the music video for single “You Can’t Spell Conch Without The ‘CH’.” The fun track gets a video that is something of a mixture of Lost and Lord Of The Flies. Or as they put it, “BABY BABY vs. villainous prep school kids and a toxic punk pig man on deserted Mystery Island.”
It was directed by Torey Haas and shot on location at Jekyll Island, Georgia.

Last week Röyksopp and Robyn announced they were going on tour together. This makes sense as they’ve worked together much in the past. Now they’ve announced they will release a new mini-album (only 5 songs) called Do It Again on May 26 via Cherrytree/Interscope Records.
Here’s what Röyksopp had to say about the album:
This 5 track mini-album is the accumulation and embodiment of the synergy between Robyn and ourselves. We’ve intended this to be a diverse yet cohesive and thought through musical venture; it’s meant to be an expression where pop & art reign side by side.
This doesn’t sound like Röyksopp featuring Robyn or Robyn produced by Röyksopp, it’s just something else entirely
This announcement came with a snippet preview of one of album track “Monument.” It’s only about a minute and a half, but it’s enough to give you a taste. It’s sounding quite good.
Jamie xx’s music video for “Sleep Sound” is rather touching. It features the video’s director Sofia Mattioli dancing with members of the Manchester Deaf Center, who responded to the movement of Mattilo and the vibrations in the air that the song gave off.
Here’s Mattilo’s explanation.
I was on a train listening to music, getting deep into it, and this girl started staring at me. After a while I took my headphones off and she came up to me, started signing and then wrote me a note to say that she was deaf but could almost feel the music by my movement.
From there she was inspired by the relationship between silence and music, and used that as a major influence in the “Sleep Sound video. Read more about the video over at Nowness and find it posted below. Read the rest of this entry »
