Mercury Rev Colour

5/12/13 – Opus 40 – Mercury Rev – 1998/99

Deserter’s Songs released in 1998 was the turning point for Mercury Rev as it was voted album of the year by the NME. It’s melodic, mysterious and magnificent. This Anton Corbijn directed video was for the third single from the album released in 1999. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercury_Rev http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deserter%27s_Songs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opus_40_(song) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opus_40

19/11/13 – Massive Attack (Featuring Elizabeth Fraser) – Teardrop -1998

The Cocteau Twins meet Massive Attack. Liz Fraser’s voice sounds like she is singing from another world and as for the video, well, I’ll let you make your own mind up. (Directed by Walter Stern). The song was on the third Massive Attack album, Mezzanine released in 1998 and sold four million copies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massive_Attack http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cocteau_Twins
