Otherworldly Videos: Juice Aleem + Sharon Jones and the Dap KIngs


Juice Aleem‘s “Anumals”

From Juice Aleem’s press: “After the soaring heights of the MoorKaBa LightBikes… the journey is continued with AnuMal: the dominion of the Flesh. A dance between the sacred and the profane. Watch out for the AnuMals!”

Keep in mind the woman with the wolf/fox mask at the end while watching the next video.

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings‘ “Retreat”

Directed by Lizzi Akana, the animated video looks like it takes influence from tales that included the wolf, like “Little Red Riding Hood” and “The Three Little Pigs.” Although this was released two months ago, I only recently saw it and coincidentally at the same time I was doing research on Little Red Riding Hood and the whole video gives a vibe of one mythic interpretation behind the tale, the ritual confrontation between the divine goddess and the beast or as the previous video, the sacred and profane.
