Music video of the week#2. Battle Box, by Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja.

Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja Instigates a Dark Fusion of Music, Art and Discourse in His Newest Project
Frozen roses collide with a dancing rooster in today’s kaleidoscopic premiere of “Battle Box 001” by Robert Del Naja, known to Massive Attack fans as the band's co-founder, 3D. Featuring haunting vocals from Elbow frontman Guy Garvey, the track ventures into the militant dub territory of the Bristol band’s 90s reign. “We used about 50 different types of roses,” says co-director Dusan Reljin, who created the video's shattering visuals with his wife Hilde. “After dipping each one into liquid nitrogen we blew them up with dynamite and makeup powder. Some of them exploded really nicely and some of them were a complete disaster.” Using a phantom camera to slow the footage down, the result is an otherworldly fantasia reminiscent of animated Rorschach ink blot tests. The untraditional collaboration grew organically out of shared interests between Del Naja and the Norway native Reljin duo. “[Robert] was starting to work on Battle Box, and at the same time we were experimenting with these images, trying to morph things," says Dusan. “We started talking to him about the project and he responded well. We wanted a slightly gritty, home-made feeling to it. That’s the way 3D works with his music, too.” 
The Vinyl Factory releases “Battle Box 001” today.

Music video of the week. LIFE & LIMB - Fingers Fall.

LIFE & LIMB - Fingers Fall from Enclaves Music on Vimeo.

Life & Limb is the collaboration between Andrea Mangia of Lecce, Italy and Mike McGuire of New York. In 2006 the two discovered each other's solo recordings online under the names Populous and Short Stories respectively. Shortly thereafter came their first release, the single "Breathes the Best", released in 2006 on Morr Music.
After the two realized this partnership could be something long-lasting their potential became clear with the 2008 release of full length 'Drawn In Basic', again on Morr Music. With a love of De La Soul and the Smashing Pumpkins' "Siamese Dream", the feedbacking guitars of My Bloody Valentine and the synthesizers of Raymond Scott the album garnered enthusiastic notes in the music press. 'Drawn In Basic Remixed' soon followed with contributions from artists such as Teebs, Opiate, and Harald Björk.
After a sabbatical working on other projects the two came back together in 2011 with new material. The influences are still broad, ranging from Flying Lotus and Broadcast to Will Oldham. However the pair felt the new recordings were more cohesive and diverged from their past work. Accordingly, a new name seemed necessary. Life & Limb was born. Enclaves is proud to release the new self-titled album on November 20th 2012 as a worldwide digital download with the Rallye Label handling a slightly different edition in Japan.
'Fingers Fall' is the second video from the album and is directed by David Echeverria. You can stream the track at, listen to other album cuts and also download a free mp3 of 'Carry On'.
