Shoegazer Sunday: Echodrone’s “Time”

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

Here’s Echodrone’s cover of The Alan Parsons’ Project’s “Time” from their Mixtape for Duckie covers album. The video has less than a hundred views as I type this, so I’m happy to showcase something that actually qualifies as new! Most cover albums do nothing for me, even by artists I really like (see also: Scratch My Back and Strange Little Girls), but everything I’ve heard from this I liked so much, I just went ahead and bought it

See how long it takes you to figure out what the video is about, something I twigged to very early, and which ties into themes explored in their previous videos.

Shoegazer Sunday: Echodrone’s “Under An Impressive Sky”

Sunday, November 11th, 2012

Here’s Echodrone’s “Under an Impressive Sky,” with a video assembled from lots of tasty atomic testing footage (which, if I’m not mistaken, is from the 29 kiloton Apple-2 atomic test performed under Operation Teapot on May 5, 1955 (5/5/55).)
