Masterchef Synesthesia video: Buttery biscuit bass

This is very clever, quite funny and a surprisingly catchy tune. You don’t need to like Masterchef to enjoy it.

OK Go – This Too Shall Pass video

Remember the innovative OK Go music video a few years back where the 4 guys did a great routine on 4 treadmills? Well this video from them represents a giant leap forward of their innovative video ideas and pays homage to the Honda Accord car advert.

It’s very complicated, and choreographed to perfection yet totally chaotic. It looks like it must have taken months of preparation and the whole thing appears to have been filmed in one take with all events happening pretty much in time with the music.

You Must Come (MP3) by Man on My Bicycle

This is another Man on my Bicycle track called You Must Come. I think it’s commercial, pretty much a pop song with an unusual mix of a bluesy-pop with some nice occasional reggae-style bits. I love the words to this song, which are just one message repeated throughout as if the more they are said the more chance they’ll have of working.

It’s about a trying to win back the affections of a girl by proclaiming he never really got to be his real self – but if she only could see that true person …

Lyrics: by Michael Briers (my cousin)

I get to be myself, sometimes,
but it’s never for long
you should see me,
honestly, you should see me.

And before the sun goes down tonight,
you will see me in a different light,
come on and see me
come on
come on and see me.

And if the light strikes my face just in the right place,
you will succumb
so I will lean by the window
with myself yes you must come.

Genghis Khan track (MP3) by Man on my Bicycle

This is another Man on my Bicycle track called Genghis Khan as requested by David. There’s a lot of dampened percussive stuff on the bass which I’m not sure comes through properly in the recording. It’s one of the songs I used to struggle to play well as I was slapping away relentlessly. Loved playing this song.
