Videodrome 135 – This week’s best videos
Each week, Moritz Gayard rounds up the best new music videos, so you don’t have to.
After last week’s hiatus, the ‘drome is back and again, this is your chance to watch the latest cool music videos from your favorite music artists, such as Forest Swords, Lil B, Angel Olsen, FKA x inc. and many more. Have fun.
#1 Penny – “Pen#1″
Do you remember Old Apparatus? One half of the mind-bending duo, the London-based producer Asher Levitas, just gave birth to a new project called Penny. Alongside writer/artist Michael Crowe, the new duo just unveiled their VHS-laden video for the stand out single “Pen#1”. Heavily on repeat here.
#2 Julio Bashmore ft. Jessie Ware – “Peppermint”, directed by Noah Harris
Digging this nice stop-motion animation from Noah Harris for the joint called “Peppermint” by Julio Bashmore and Jessie Ware! If you like Julio’s sounds, come and join us in Warsaw.
#3 Heterotic feat. Vezelay – “Rain”, directed by Konx-om-Pax
Planet-Mu label boss Mike Paradinas and his wife Lara Rix-Martin are back with French singer Vezelay a.k.a. Matthieu Le Berre for their neat, catchy track “Rain”.
#4 Forest Swords – “The Weight of Gold”, directed by Benjamin Millepied
Dancy music video featuring Billy Barry, choreographed and filmed by Benjamin Millepied. Really gorgeous video. Check it out. Read more about their album here.
#5 Gobby – “Red Seal”
You probably know already that I am a crazy Gobby lover. Above you can feel again his extraordinary qualities when it comes to the future of electronic distortion maneuvers. Also, puppets to explore. Go, Gobby.
#6 Lil B – “I Got Bi$%*es”
Here, the BasedGod is letting us know how much he loves bitches. Ach echt?
#7 Angel Olsen – “Hi-Five”, directed by Zia Anger
Bit late on this one, but her presence here in this nice, little video is somewhat special. Wanna see more (Angel Olsen) videos directed by Zia Anger. Angel’s new album Burn Your Fire for No Witness was released this month. Go and get it.
#8 COMA – “Missing Piece”, directed by Dominique Lucien Garaudel
Cologne’s COMA, the Kompakt-signed duo which played our Electronic Beats Festival last year, is back with another video for last year’s album, In Technicolor. The video consists of two dancing kids and a lot of colors. Casting (the girl!) is kinda boring, though.
#9 FKA Twigs & inc. – “FKA x inc.”, directed by Nick Walker and FKA Twigs
So much love for this nu-R&B, made in a joint work by FKA Twigs and L.A.’s inc.
#10 Beyoncé – “Partition”, directed by Jake Nava
Beyoncé released her official visuals for the track “Partition”, produced by Timbaland, Justin Timberlake and Key Wane. Video has a Jay Z cameo and a is pretty much NSFW.
