Favourable Mention: OK Go “The One Moment”


This week’s favourable mention isn’t an album but a single music video. Of course, the video is from the Indie pop band OK go—also known as the makers of the world’s most intricate and insane music videos—so we know it’s amazing.

The video for their song “The One Moment” actually only lasts 4.2 seconds in real time, but when slowed down, is a four minute masterpiece.

Prepare to have your mind evaporated!

If you are new to OK Go, and want to see more amazing videos, then start with these two:

Favourable Mention–Miqedem


This week’s faourable mention goes to a band that you probably won’t be able to understand. Not because their artistry isn’t clear, but because they sing in Hebrew. Miqedem, the five-piece band from Tel Aviv,  has an enchanting blend of progressive rock and modal middle eastern melodies. I am really enjoying Track 1 title Be’elohim. Here is a description of the band from their Facebook page:

Based out of Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel, Miqedem’s music reflects the culture of a city caught between worlds. Miqedem’s debut self-titled album is a genre-melding collection of songs taken from the Hebrew Tanach.
