    Default Holy Crap, she's back!

    iamamiwhoami is back! Looks like the start of a whole new mystery. And in this one we have TP beds, semen samples and what appears to be her systematic rape of people she's keeping imprisoned. Hot.





    EDIT: Just catching up with iamamiwhoami? View all of the previous videos here, courtesy of captncrzy.

    Don't think she's raping; I think she's a prostitute.

    I wonder if the guy running in the beginning is escaping a certain doom (??).
    If she's a "prostitute", why does everyone appear so reluctant??

    Oh, and the song is on amazon/itunes too if people want it.

    Perhaps "rape" and/or "prostitute" are far too conventional descriptions for whatever kind of kookiness is going on in that building. I mean, the last campaign was all based around that obscure myth about the mandrake plant with allusions to environmentalism and consumerism (maybe). Honestly, I don't need all the answers. I like having the mystery.

    Far too much has transpired for us to give you a history on this amazing artist. Check out the wiki page. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iamamiwhoami

    Top-line...

    • Strange mystery video snippets started appearing on YouTube in December of '09.

    • Featured a very obscured woman who sometimes appeared to be covered in mud. Lots of odd imagery around nature, trees, water, birthing.

    • The woman's identity was obscured.

    • Most of these 30-6o sec snippets featured brief musical clips which would be expanded upon in future videos.

    • Speculation started running that this was a viral campaign for Christina Aguilera, Goldfrapp, Fever Ray, etc.

    • As each successive video was released, the artist's face was a little less obscured; turned out to be Jonna Lee, a seemingly charming but conventional Swedish/British singer-songwriter who appeared to have some sort of musical/video arts collective project titled iamamiwhoami.

    • To this day, Jonna has never confirmed it's her nor spoken about the project.

    • No albums released, but as complete music videos were released, full songs were added to iTunes.

    • Eventually, a volunteer was recruited to go with Jonna and crew to a remote forest location in Sweden (we think) where a live "concert" of all of the previously released songs was performed in the forest.

    • The videos appeared to be based around a strange myth about the mandrake plant which grew from the semen of men who were hung in public.

    • After the live concert video. All went silent and the project appeared to be over.

    • Now, 6 mos. later she's back with a whole new video and what appears to be a new concept and/or the old project set in the past or future...



    Okay, I guess I could summarize it for you.

    Have to say, with iamamiwhoami, music can be almost secondary when experiencing her videos for the first time. I've had this one playing in the background while working and it's already grown on me. Like with most of the other releases, a seemingly simple song reveals more with each listen. I absolutely love the use of her chest (or deeper) voice in the song.

    I also agree with Hunter, the concert versions of the previous songs were amazing. In some instances, I think the concert versions were superior.

    What do you all think about the phone ringing at the end? Could she be preparing to recruit another volunteer from her devoted YouTube following? PIIIICK MEEEEE! (although, I don't want to donate sperm)

    Oh, man! Things are getting exciting!!








    • New video (posted on Vimeo, not on YT). Still image of Jonna reclined on bed (seen above) with echo of her singing over the phone.

    • Video lists a random international phone number: + 46 702 888 037 (can anyone on here call? I can't dial internationally)

    • Most importantly, the video provides a link to the Way Out West Festival in Sweden. Apparently, iamamiwhoami will be performing at this festival in August!

    And it looks like she's been signed to D.E.F. Management (The Knife, Robyn, Moby, Royksopp, M83).

    Hey Paul Tollett- I hope you have the opportunity to make super good friends with someone over at D.E.F. You could get some kind of "All DEF artist" discount for next year.

    I just called the number. It rang and it was kind of weird because it sounded like it kept ringing and while the ringing continued there was some weird voice saying/singing words over the ringing. It didn't sound like english.

    I'll try to record it when I get home.
