MUSIC: Santogold "L.E.S. Artistes" Video

Normally, I post a music video of a song I can't get out of my head or that I think has potential to get stuck in everybody else's. But ever since the MTV Music Awards last year, I've been thinking about how many videos get left out that are actually quite creative...unlike one of the nominees they had last year ("Umbrella" by Rihanna).

So in the spirit of that, I thought you should see this video by Santogold, a singer from Philly, for the song "L.E.S. Artistes." She kind of sounds like a mix of Tegan & Sara and Macy Gray vocally, and she's singing about sacrificing for what she believes in. But the real focus here is the semi-graphic images that are being shown in the video with internal organ prosthetics sewn into clothes and artistic forms of depicting blood gushing. I think it's unique, but if you've ever seen anything like this, clue me in.

  1. The video is an homage to Jodorowsky's "The Holy Mountain."
