MARK RONSON's new videoclip. Awesome.
Yep, its that Radiohead song, but this time I'm in favour of a cover version of a song that is less than 10 years old. For it has the Dap Kings horn section & oddly enough the lead singer of Phantom Planet. I have to give it up to the Ronson, at least he's one of the more well known dj/producers dabbling in a mix of interesting genres with good pop oriented music that still has a grasp on substance & diversity.
The videoclip is just fantastic. Incorporating graffiti & stencil art from what looks to be London & animating it over real street scenes. Sure its similiar to Blur's clip for their song Crazy Beat that utlised Banksy, but this uses a few different artists work. Many of them recognisable.
I wish radio would play this type of stuff over the bullshit they do playlist.
The single is available from 13th March on BBE/RAPSTER.
