Marmoset + Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott

A few months back, Team Marmoset scored this spot for Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott, via Agency of the Year, Chicago-based mcgarrybowen. The indie-orchestral soundtrack helps support Fairfield's brand and promises of hotel rooms with work spaces, free wi-fi, and free breakfast. There's nothing like getting some work done via the worldwide web, while munching on some continental toast and sausage links. And bacon. Oooooooooh, sweet maple bacon.

Stella Artois: The Life of Sundance


Head to the Stella Artois Facebook page to check out parts one and two of a four-part series on the Sundance Film Festival, the American mecca of up-and-coming cinema. Both clips feature licensed music from artists on the Marmoset roster. Part one, titled "The Arrival," sets the scene with the Stella crew landing in Salt Lake City, driving to Park City, and getting the bars all fired up for a heavy flow of smooth lagers. The soundtrack to the scene is the retro-classy "Sound Sharp!" by Ill Mondo.

Part two, titled "Morning," profiles Daniel Joly, a chef who aims to approach food with the same creativity as a director approaches a film. His way of achieving this: Beer for breakfast. As an ingredient of course, not the main course. The sleepy-eyed aura of the clip is aided by "Terminal Seat" by Big Spider's Back.

Both Ill Mondo and Big Spider's Back are featured on the Marmoset roster, so give us a shout if you'd like to use their music in a project. Shout out to our friends at VML in Kansas City for making things happen.

The LeBron 9


Whether or not you are a fan of the Akron Hammer, you have to admit the guy wears some fly kicks. Nike's latest basketball shoe - The Lebron 9 - is specifically designed with the science of LeBron's game in mind. As a Blazers fan, I'm not sure how I feel about this. I'd prefer if the shoes were specifically designed to aid Jamal Crawford's sick crossovers... or maybe Nike could've programmed a secret Rose Garden virus into the shoe that makes the laces always come untied whenever LeBron steps foot in Portland. In any event, I'll be the first to admit that both the shoes and the music in this little vignette are pretty dope. I suppose I am a little bit biased, since we scored it, but at least it's not as conniving as my Blazers bias.

So check out this video and listen closely to the designers nerd out over footwear about as much as we nerd out over music. This shoe science biz is insane. Shout out to our buds at the most incredible Juliet Zulu for thoughtfully crafting all things visual and also to Marmoset composer Danny Jones for laying down the beats.
