Circlesquare

Your favorite Robert Longo-inspired video for the next five minutes: "Dancers," Circlesquare. My pal Colin turned me onto Circlesquare just as I was writing my top albums of '08 post, which they should have made. He recently interviewed them in Prefix.

Longo-inspired? Longo's "Men in the City" models weren't dancing, they were dodging projectiles. Longo's images were of spontaneous contortions. They were images of people being attacked by the city (or the lifestyle or whatever), not West Side Story dance moves in 80s business attire.

Still, nice tune.

Well, the directors of the video say it was inspired by Longo (and I'm not sure how someone could disagree with the visuals, whatever their intent).
