Animation in music videos has been accepted at least since the Beatles' "Yellow Submarine," but it recently seems to be undergoing a bit of a revival. The Texas band Búho released this single Endless/Blur on Crowquill Records, and it merits a look just for seeing what is going on at the cutting edges of animation these days.
According to the youtube page, this was animated and produced by Seattle based character artist Bradley Oliver Wilkinson. Must have been a lot of work! We're not going to comment on the song because you are as equipped to do that yourself based upon what you like - it has a heavy metal grunge-rock feel - but the animation is pretty cool.
I mean, either you like this sort of thing or you don't, your call. The animation is nightmarish and definitely way out there on the alternative side. If you're in the mood for something like that, this music video should be a lot of fun. If you don't do things a little wacky like this, you don't get noticed.
