Compilation DVD forthcoming from WARP Records!

It appears the DVD music video market just got a bit more interesting, as WARP Records has recently announced that a collection of music videos is slated for SEPTEMBER 21st release. Although the music artists on the WARP roster are creative in their own right, the directors of their videos take things to a whole new level of bizarre. The most noteworthy is Chris Cunningham, who recently released a DVD of his video creations as a part of Palm Pictures Directors Series [along with Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry]. Cunningham has a way of making nightmarish images appear somewhat fallible and humorous, but certainly no less surreal. In fact, all the directors on this video collection add bits of their own unique takes on humanity to augment the more organic aspects of the electronic soundscapes contained therein. Tracklisting includes...
