What a beautifully amazing surprise to get another video treatment from Bjork’s epic Biophilia. “Mutual Core” is the lucky track and the video, in Bjork standards, is spectacular. This makes our tectonic plates come together to form an eruption of sorts just like the video. Notice how every Bjork video puts a spin on the track that you didn’t expect? This is probably one of the best videos of the entire year – just in time!
Bjork hasn’t released a full-on remix album since her beautiful Telegram. But, now she is back with a new set of remixes from Biophilia tracks. This new album is titled Bastards and is set to be released on November 19th, 2012. Click below for the track listing.
On April 16 One Little Indian Records is set to release the first in an eight-part series of remixes of tracks from Björk’s Biophilia. Available on 12” vinyl as well as CD and digital download, the first entry in the series features the Current Value remixes of “Crystalline” and “Solstice.” The series will go on to feature a new collaboration every two weeks with artists 16-bit, King Cannibal, Death Grips, El Guincho, Matthew Herbert, Hudson Mohawke, Alva Noto, and These New Puritans. Each entry in the series will also be made available in a 500-piece limited edition deluxe package designed by m/m with special blue mineral papers and embossed foil lettering consisting of a 12” LP and CD.
We might not sit down and enjoy Bjork’s new music these days, but she sure can churn up a hot visual. This is the new video treatment from Biophilia. The album, although it is not exactly catchy, has its moments.
Finally, some songs from the golden era of Bjork. Do you think she will ever go back to making songs that are actually catchy?
