I suddenly rediscovered some material from the ARS Electronica festival, I was there in Linz, Austria in october. One part of the festival program is digital animation, and one of the best music videos we saw there has to be the song Black/White by danish band The Raveonettes. Check it out:

I really like Raveonettes music as well, they sound like a cross between the 50’s, The Ramones and The Jesus And Mary Chain..
