Landfill Harmonic: Recycled Orchestra movie trailer tells incredible story. (VIDEO) Above is a teaser trailer for the documentary Landfill Harmonic, about “Los Reciclados,” or “The Recycled Orchestra,” part of a youth music program in Paraguay. Los Reciclados are from Cateura, a poor city that houses “the final dumping site for more than 1,500 tons of solid waste each day.” Alejandra Nash and Juliana Penaranda-Loftus have been working on the movie for the last two years, following three members of the orchestra in particular. If you do not lose it a little when 19-year-old Juan Manuel Chavez starts playing Bach’s Cello Suite no. 1 on an instrument “made from an oil can, and wood that was thrown away in the garbage,” then you are made of sterner stuff than I.

114 million views and counting: What Does The Fox Say is this year’s Gangnam Style Sometimes, it’s hard to predict what viral videos will pop big and then fade out, and which will become 100 million juggernauts that show little sign of slowing down. But one clear constant has always been the combination of music and comedy. Finding that out most recently is Ylvis, the Norwegian comedy/music duo who have, since blowing up last month, since racked up over 114 million views for their breakout video What Does The Fox Say?, which blends dance beats with silly animal noises. While Ylvis is technically no one-hit wonder — the brothers Bård Ylvisåker and Vegard Ylvisåke have been popular in their native land for years — the song has launched them internationally, even landing them on the iTunes music charts (What Does The Fox Say?

Slow-Motion Masterpiece Captures Bags of Spices Exploding in Time with Music It’s only January 11th, and we’ve already found a piece of slow-motion cinematography that might just remain our favorite of 2014. Created as a commercial for Schwartz Flavour Shots, this slow-motion video dubbed “The Sound of Taste” is a beautiful combination of cinematography and pyrotechnics that creates what filmmaker Chris Cairns calls “an audiovisual feast.” To create this ‘feast,’ Cairns was joined by musician MJ Cole and pyrotechnician Paul Mann.

South by Southwest: Meet Shelby Earl, the singer you need to know The big names performing at this year’s South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, include Lady Gaga, Kanye West and Jay Z and Coldplay — not exactly scrappy upstarts looking to break through. But even as well-established acts siphon off some of the buzz SXSW generates (Prince and Justin Timberlake played last year, and Bruce Springsteen performed the year before that), there’s no shortage of opportunities to discover new artists. Take Shelby Earl, for example. Since quitting a corporate gig at Amazon a few years ago to make music full time, the Seattle singer and songwriter has released a pair of albums, including last year’s excellent “Swift Arrows.” They’re pop albums, in the sense that Earl has a way with melodies that have a classic feel, but there’s nothing bubblegum about her. In fact, Earl is an optimist at heart, and it showed onstage Tuesday night when she played in the opening time slot for this year’s SXSW.

Come Dance With Me : Krulwich Wonders... At the end, shoes fly. This must be a dancers' thing. You go to Urban Dance Camp, Keone and Mari step out onto the gym floor. C2C's "Happy" is in the air, and the pair just ... they just go perfectly crazy. I know this is a sciencey site, and not a place to get giddy with tunes, but hey, it's the weekend, you're here, and this is a blog and I'm allowed to follow my pleasures.

This Sweet Video of People Dancing Naked in Public Will Charm Your Pants Off Who feels like getting naked and dancing through the strees of Los Angeles? Wait, don't answer until you've watched this. In a charming (and essentially safe for work) video promo for its upcoming reality series Dating Naked, VH1 and agency Mistress filmed a diverse mix of people whirling and waltzing around a small crowd of onlookers in L.A. to the tune of "I'm Just Wild About Harry." The result is a one-take clip free of the kind of sleazy sexualization we usually see in nudity-based ads. It feels instead like a warm-hearted celebration of dropping inhibitions (and trousers) in the name of self-expression. Waltz on the Walls: An Aerial Dance Performance on the Side of Oakland’s City Hall This surprisingly lovely dance performance was filmed vertically on the side of Oakland’s 18-story City Hall building earlier this month at the Art + Soul Festival. The dancers are Amelia Rudolph and Roel Seeber from Bandaloop. (via The Awesomer)

A Sultry New Dance Video for OK Go’s ‘Skyscrapers’ Another day, another wonderful music video by OK Go. This new video for Skyscrapers features a sultry montage of dance moves through a series of colorful urban backdrops. The clip was directed and produced by Grammy Award-winning choreographer and director Trish Sie (the lady above) paired with Moti Buchboot. More than many of OK Go’s songs lately, I’m really enjoying this one and might have to pick it up. Slow Club: Two Cousins A new video for Slow Club from their forthcoming album out in September, featuring dancers Ryan Francois and Remy Kouame performing an homage to dancers Al Minns and Leon James. The music in no way “matches” the dancing, and yet creates such a beautiful juxtaposition. (via cliptip)

Choros: A Transfixing Experimental Dance Film by Michael Langan & Terah Maher Released three weeks ago after a year on tour at various film festivals, {*style:<a href=' is the latest experimental art film from director {*style:<a href=' Langan{*style:</a>*} the explores the movement of the human body, specifically the motion of dancer {*style:<a href=' Maher{*style:</a>*}. Choros follows in the steps of Eadweard Muybridge, Etienne-Jules Marey, and Norman McLaren, all of whom spent years studying the physical moment of animals and humans through film. Langan takes the next step using new digital innovations to layer some 32 sequential instances of a single movement and then stretch it out over time.

Lizzy Caplan sings "You Don't Know Me" In this clip from the first season of Showtime drama Masters of Sex, Freaks and Geeks and Party Down actor Lizzy Caplan sings a cover of the tune most popularized by Ray Charles. The show is a loose account of the groundbreaking sex study conducted by Dr. William Masters and Virginia Johnson. It's a supremely well-acted period piece, with a number of excellent performances including Beau Bridges and The West Wing's Allison Janney as a husband and wife dealing with his closeted homosexuality. Michael Sheen's intense and emotional work as Masters creates a compelling portrait of a character who could easily be an unlikable wretch in the hands of a lesser actor, and Caplan is tremendous as Johnson, radiating both warmth and steely determination as a woman with modern ideas on relationships trying to get by and get ahead at equal turns while encountering the medical field's glass ceiling and society's objectifying glare.

Video: She & Him cover Dusty Springfield The lovely and talented duo of She & Him, aka M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel, bring their 1960s AM-radio joy to the Dusty Springfield tune "Stay Awhile." It's from their forthcoming covers LP, titled Classics.
