Diane Birch – Valentino: “Behind The Screen”
Diane Birch’s video for her song Valentino is certainly innovative and fun. There are plenty of moments where the Diane and the screen do a few visual tricks that keep you guessing. For those wondering how they pulled off these tricks, here’s the “Behind the Screen” making of video. The “Behind the Screen” shows how much actual work it takes to make the magic of a music video actually happen. The interactions between the screen and the real world were carefully planned and timed. Watching the making of video for this project made it obvious that there is a high level of craftsmanship that is necessary to make a music video look flawless.

Lewis & Clark cover David Bowie’s Changes
David Bowie is a true icon. He made his image and music an international sensation by putting on personas and creating characters that were larger than life. This weeks listen is a cover album that features TWO discs that cover a large span of Bowie’s career. The catch is that it’s not just one artist covering the best of Bowie, but several indie favorites, including Lewis & Clarke who’s music we featured on RADAR episode 34 – I Hate Perfume. The tracks though familiar are adapted into each artist’s style, but to the bone they still maintain true to their hardened Bowie edge and playfulness. Covers might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but these re-imaginings of classic rock songs recreate the aura of the great Ziggy Stardust.
