Bob Dylan "Like A Rolling Stone" - Official Interactive Video!

Bob Dylan "Like A Rolling Stone" - Official Interactive Video! | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

Revolutionary technology sparks first official video for Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone".

 

I’ve now “interacted” with this incredible “Like a Rolling Stone” video three times on BobDylan.com, and I’m still not sure what just happened; I only know it was amazing. But as far as I can tell, as my mind continues to reel, these are the basics:

1. It’s a music video for “Like a Rolling Stone,” the Bob Dylan hit. It’s been almost 50 years since the song was released, and there has never been an official music video.

2. But this isn’t just any video. It’s interactive. You can flip through different tv channels within the video itself, and see different programs. And on each show, the actors and hosts are mouthing the words to the song in perfect time.

3. And the shows are real! Sort of! We’ve got Drew Carey on “The Price is Right,” Steve Levy on “SportsCenter,” the Pawn Stars guys, Marc Maron recording a podcast, a history show about the depression, a news channel, a totally different music video, and etc. At first glance, I’m counting 16 different channels.

4. It’s funny, too! There’s a fake movie called Love is Love, a show called “Bachelor’s Roses,” and a competition on the sports channel called the “Pan Asia Tennis Tournament” (first round, of course). And look, that’s just scratching the surface. No two experiences are alike, and it seems like you could watch it a thousand times and discover something new with each view.

SONG of the DAY: Ghost Wave - "Here She Comes"

SONG of the DAY: GHOST WAVE - "Here She Comes".

 

The Ghost Wave sound finds itself somewhere between the Flying Nun bands of the ‘80s, the British explosion of the ‘60s and the wayfaring dubs of Lee “Scratch” Perry. At its inception, the brainchild of Matthew L. Paul (Vocals, Guitar), Ghost Wave was a project relegated to a small room in Auckland, New Zealand. In time, the sonic chemistry that resulted from one person’s relentless work caught the attention of fellow music maker and soon-to-be collaborator Eammon Logan (Drums). Together they self-recorded what came to be their self-titled EP; a collection of sunny and warped songs characterized by jangly guitars underpinned by motor-style rhythms and a unique melodic sensibility. Ghost Wave recruited the talents of Mike Ellis (Bass, Vocals) and Jamie Kennedy (Guitar) to assist with the recording. Shortly after, both join the band.

UNDER THE RADAR: Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks - "Lariat" (Lyric Video)

UNDER THE RADAR: STEPHEN MALKMUS & THE JICKS - "Lariat".

 

Malkmus is back! Stephen Malkmus and his band the Jicks made their big return to the stage in Portland, and now they’ve announced plans for their excellently titled new album Wig Out At Jagbags. Here’s what Malkmus has to say about the album in a statement:

 

"Wig Out at Jagbags is inspired by Cologne, Germany, Mark Von Schlegell, Rosemarie Trockel, Von Spar and Jan Lankisch, Can and Gas; Stephen-Malkmus-imagined Weezer/Chili Peppers, Sic Alps, UVA in the late 80′s, NYRB, Aroma Charlottenburg, inactivity, Jamming, Indie guys tring to sound Memphis, Flipper, Pete Townshend, Pavement, The Joggers, The NBA and home life in the 2010′s….

 

“Lariat” is the loose, scrappy, ebullient first single, and its video, directed by Leblanc + Cudmore, is a sort-of lyric video in which a charming young lady, in an apartment full of very serious people, translates the lyrics into French.
