Watch: Nurses play ChatRoulette

    The latest-cyber craze ChatRoulette is the perfect destination for those long, boring days in the office or classroom. But is definitely more suitable in the privacy of your own home. The site offers limitless opportunities to make new friends, kill down time, have an interesting conversation, and see things you wish you never even knew existed. Recently, artists have begun using the site as a launching pad for new singles and music videos.

    On February 23rd, the Psych-folk trio Nurses, set up 15 laptops around their instruments and streamed the single “So Sweet” live via ChatRoulette. Since then, the band has edited the footage to create a rather NSFW music video, documenting their performance and the random pairings that were made during recording. Note: Starting off rather innocently, the video does contain images that may not be suitable for all situations. With that said go ahead and check out the video below.

    Not feeling so dangerous? Nurses, in collaboration with director Hans Lo, have also a released a video for “Winter” from their 2009 album, Apple’s Acre. The video blends elements of childhood kaleidoscopes with the iTunes visualizer; a perfect accompaniment to the band’s home-made psychedelia.
