Cluster C1 manchester orchestra concert

    What’s up everybody? Enjoying that time of seasonal change? Better yet, enjoying going back to school? Hey, all of that’s alright. Getting into the new routine is what makes change all the more interesting. Sure, one month ago you were lounging by the pool while surfing the web, but now you’re listening to your teacher talk about electrons while surfing the web. Oh, how the times change. Here at Cluster 1, though, our routine is always changing in order to get you the freshest and dopest video content out there. And as your routines change, one thing will remain constant: 10 quality videos delivered to you weekly.

    So, check out this week’s top 10, and don’t forget to submit some of your videos to get tossed into the mix.

    Army Navy – “Ode to Janice Melt”

    Blink-182 once said, “There are only so many ways I can make love with my hand.” However, the star of the new video from Army Navy manages to find more. When his wife goes on vacation, a man starts to have a passionate love affair… with his hand, all while a band of hands play out the catchy song. I guess it could be worse; at least your hand will never leave you.

    Com Truise – “Brokendate”

    Hopefully, cops of the future will be this badass. In this Com Truise music video/short film, the story follows an investigator who knows no boundaries and looks like a cross between Morpheus and Walter White. With the case of a dead girl to look into, the investigator does the unthinkable: He enters cyberspace!

    Diego Stocco – “Music From a Dry Cleaner”

    It’s not uncommon to use ordinary and industrial objects to create timbre and rhythm, but this video from Diego Stocco takes it to a whole new level. After setting up a group of microphones all over a dry cleaning shop, he uses the various tools, machines, and accessories to put together a totally awesome, catchy, and danceable song. This is how dub step should be made.

    f e e d b a c k Episode 13: Colin Stetson

    Colin Stetson lives a pretty awesome life. For one, he’s a saxophone virtuoso, which is not something most people can lay claim to. He’s worked with a number of the coolest bands, such as Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, TV on the Radio, and David freaking Byrne. And finally, he’s nominated for the Polaris Music Prize, which is a pretty big deal in Canada. And this short doc with Side B tells it all!

    Icarus Himself – “On Your Side”

    This is the point in video history where hipster culture merges with Quentin Tarantino. The video depicts two different breeds of lovers, one in holy matrimony and the other dancing with the devil. Backed up with Icarus Himself’s fuzzy brand of synth-rock, the image and sound go hand in hand, much like both pairs of lovers depicted in the video… no matter how deadly one of them appears to be.

    Jacuzzi Boys – “Automatic Jail”

    Everybody wishes they could be something else. It’s inevitable. We are a curious species, much like the canines. The irony of that curiosity is what Jacuzzi Boys chose to do with this slightly voyeuristic and wishful video. Within it, we see the world through two creatures’ eyes, a friendly dog and a (presumably) good-looking dude. The twist is that they’re actually the same perspective, but toxic waste TRANSFORMS THEM!
