We can thank the DSLR for being prominent in the rise of music video saturation, artists now shoot visuals for everything that gets uploaded to Souncloud, but few break the cliches and mundane concepts that we are accustomed to. I appreciate Austin, Texas artist Curbside Jones for having a bigger vision. Instead of spending money on a Mark III, he decided to fund his idea through Kickstarter, to create a fully animated rendition of his single Pink (an acronym for Progress, Innovation, Needed Knowledge). Teaming up with fellow Austin native and The Lower Class member Kartune (who handled all the animation), the two successfully broke their goal of $1,500. Pink is a video funded by the people, for the people; the end result is stunning eye candy that will surely engross your attention. You can find more music from Curbside Jones on his The Cherry Blossom Effect: Trance(End) Edition album, available for free at Audiomack. Hopefully, more upcoming artists will share his boundary pushing attitude.
