VOTD: Move over, Daft Punk

Help the world welcome the new Justice album with a pair of prog-tastic music vids.

There’s no denying the resounding influence of 1970s prog rock on Parisian electro-heads Justice (whom many have called the heirs to Daft Punk’s giant pyramid throne) and their much-anticipated second record, “Audio Video Disco,” which was released yesterday. 

The two videos below do well to match the enormity of these new tracks, particularly “Civilization,” which literally has glowing, stampeding space buffalo trying to dodge falling boulders as the world falls apart. Glad to know that somebody other than Kanye West wants to bring back what bands like Yes and King Crimson loved about music.

Halloween Parade

Past grand marshals of Gazette’s Halloween Parade have included some real characters — like a couple of vampires and a Flaming Lip — but for the first time, that honor goes not to a person, but an intangible thing.

The Sleeping Beauty

France reclaims a fairy tale to depict a girl’s erotic awakening.


Rod Lott
Anyone who thinks the current craze of rebooting fairy tales (from film’s “Red Riding Hood” to TV’s “Once Upon a Time”) is “edgy,” I’d like to sit them down in front of Catherine Breillat’s “The Sleeping Beauty.” Now that's edgy.
