Since I love music more than anything, I thought I’d share some of my favorite videos that combine hand drawn animation with great songs!
First up Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci’s Spanish Dance Troupe. I think they are a cool band. I first heard them when I was maybe 13 on The Wedge. They played Poodle Rockin’ and it was love at first sight! How could you not love a song and video about a crazy white poodle? I love the animation in this vid.
Secondly…have you heard of Chad Vangaalen? Probably? He is an artist and musician combo, and I think maybe his most recent work is in that video for Mother Mother that plays on Much Music alot lately. Not a huge fan of that band but I am a huge Chad Vangalen fan, and a fan of his crazy animation skills. Everything is so transformative and colourful. Good work! This is such a good song too. Take a look/listen!
My love for music runs so deep. I don’t know what I would do without it.
I hope you all listen to tons of music today, and hopefully it’s as sunny where you are as it is here in Halifax today!
