I recently saw a new music video on the latest edition of Stash for the hip-hop group Subtle, directed by the uber-talented SSSR of passion pictures. After hearing the song, I had to buy the album, and found this lovely description of Subtle’s music…
‘If Cee-Lo truly went ”Crazy” and paired up with a producer much wilier than Danger Mouse, he’d sound something like the gnarled sound collages of Subtle.’
Which I completely agree with. Awesome music, and an awesome video. I knew it looked familiar, because upon a little digging, I found out that SSSR did another video in the past for Subtle, for the track FKO (which by the way, stands for F*ck Kelly Osbourne), which I remember seeing a couple years ago and loving. THEN I found out that that video was the first part of a trilogy of music videos for Subtle, which is a tight idea, and not one I’ve heard of being done before… but who knows, probably has been. Anyway, here’s the trilogy. Awesome stuff by the peeps at SSSR.
(sorry, all links to youtube)
Part 1 – FKO
Part 2 – The Long Vein of the Law
Part 3 – Swan Meat
*edit* found a website for the band here…
