The Raconteurs - Sunday Driver ( Dir : Steven Sebring ) 2018

The Chemical Brothers - Free Yourself ( Dir : DOM&NIC ) 2018

Les Frères Chimiques restent dans leur zone de confort mais comme tout ce qu'il font est quand même très " jouissif " et leur savoir-faire jamais pris en défaut, pardonnons-leur le peu de nouveauté.
Quand au clip, on peut lui faire la même critique mais qu'est-ce que c'est plaisant ! En ces temps de rock un peu moribond par déshérence et désintérêt de beaucoup de jeunes pour le genre, ne boudons pas notre plaisir, des machines oui mais des rockeuses !

Parquet Courts - Wide Awake ( Dir : Brother Willis ) 2018

Un des meilleurs morceaux funky de cette année, un clip amusant tourné à la Nouvelle-Orléans, visiblement avec des morceaux de Mardi-Gras dedans, musique entre Chk Chk Chk !!! et Vampire Weekend, une bonne nouvelle  ! .....  (tout comme le retour des Chics Clips ;-)  )     [ if my french is too complicated do not hesitate to use the " translate " button on the blog page then I promess to you hours of fun trying to correct the translation's mistakes properly ! ]

Alain Peters - Rest'la Maloya ( Audio track ) Lyrics ( Créole ) below 1985/86



... stupid as I am ... I was sure I had posted this song long time ago ! It's one of the greatest song ever written in french creole from La Réunion ( Indian ocean )... written by the poet Alain Peters , an excentric & talented character, who died at 43 after a life of alcohol, psychiatric hospitals and life as nearly tramp ...Lyrics below : 

Pier, Paul, Jak ek Jozeph
 carro, pik, kèr, sanm trèf
 té parti fé kampagn

The Carters ( Beyonce & Jay-Z ) - Apeshit ( Dir : Ricky Saiz ) 2018


... inévitable ( à moins d'être berger dans la Cordillière des Andes ... et encore ...) .... pour la beauté du Louvre et ses œuvres splendides, trésors de l'humanité toute entière, le charisme du couple de VIP et le coté très accrocheur du titre il faut l'admettre .... c'est arrogant, un peu racoleur mais costaud niveau production et réalisation du clip au bout du compte ( et si ça peut faire connaître les œuvres au plus jeunes d'entre nous c'est plus qu'OK pour moi )...

Bob Dylan - Not dark yet ( Audiotrack ) 1997 - Last flag flying ( Movie ) 2015 - Didier Balducci - Tourisme Parralèle ( Book ) 2018


Les Chics Clips launches into the cultural prescription .... If you can, watch "Last flag flying", the three main actors do wonders and have rarely been so good, especially Steve Carell, to break your heart & Bryan Cranston , dazzling with energy. During the end credits you will hear "Not dark yet", an essential pearl signed Bob Dylan at its best .... for the literary council, if you know (or even il you don't  ! ) The city of Nice and its surroundings (especially St-Laurent -du-Var) & if you want to laugh endlessly, I recommend the wonderful book of chronicles by Didier Balducci, "Tourisme Parrallèle, Tome 1 - La Côte d'Azur ", published by Editions Mono-Tone.
