Music Monday: The Chemical Brothers

Hal from Team Swagbucks here with today’s Music Monday!

The Chemical Brothers have been creating arresting and heart pounding beats for years, but in my mind their best collaborations have come in the form of the music videos they did with “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” director Michel Gondry. Gondry, who is himself a drum player, directs music videos in way that really accentuates the rhythm of the music, a perfect match for the Chemical Brothers. While they’ve had some really memorable pairings, the one that stands out the most to me is Star Guitar. While it samples from David Bowie, the hypnotic song is really made up of repeating parts that layer over one another, which Gondry parallels to perfection with the repetition of landmarks seen from a moving train.

I can’t get enough of this video, and I think you’ll like it too.
