A couple of weeks back El Vez posted the the promo for the the new TV on the Radio single Will Do, but to accompany the album dropping a couple days ago, the band have released the full length album music video Nine Types of Light comprising 10 promos and a spoof dojo ad by 11 different directors/teams:
Tim Nackashi – Caffeinated Consciousness
Michael Please – Second Song
Maya Erdelyi – New Cannonball Blues
Jon Moritsugu & Amy Davis – No Future Shock
Johnerick Lawson – Repetition
Dugan O’Neal – Will Do
Petro – Keep Your Heart
Tunde Adebimpe – Forgotten
TV on the Radio & Dano Cerny –Killer Crane
Barney Clay – You
Tim Nackashi, Tunde Adebimpe & Jaleel Bunton – Dragon Backwards
From the TV on the Radio website:
“Nine Types of Light is as much an album as it is a movie by TV on the Radio.
The movie is meant to be a visual re-imagining of the record, and includes a music video for every song on the album.
The band personally asked their friends and the filmmakers they admired to help direct the music videos.
Tunde Adebimpe, the director for the full Nine Types of Light movie, storybooked the music videos together with interviews from local New Yorkers on various topics, including dreams, love, fame and the future. Tunde also directed the music video for Forgotten.”
Even better, the band have posted the full film online for our viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
