Francis Harris : “Pharoah In The Morning” Music Video, Matthew Herbert Remix + First Person Shootr – “Punch-Struck” Music Video

Francis Harris

Sexual tension creates intrigue in Francis Harris’ video for “Pharoah In The Morning.” Directed by Lisa B, this video pairs perfectly with the minimal and jazzy contributions of Danish singer Gry and trumpet player Greg Paulus, like a morning wake-up call of the most passionate and surprisingly exciting kind.

The video follows with a remix from electronic composer Matthew Herbert, who creates a artfully restrained and delicately progressive version of “lostfound,” as well as a tracklisting for Leland, which is out now on Scissor & Thread.

First Person Shootr

High-contrast footage more suitable for a film like The Ring lends an eerie quality to First Person Shootr video for “Punch Struck.” As beat-matched pulses of morbid imagery build and build, one suspects a final payoff in the form of chaos — but it is when it abruptly cuts out at 2:30 that one begins to feel truly unsettled. First Person Shootr’s latest record, Mobility For Gods, was released on February 28th, 2012 on Lefse Records. Tracklisting below.
