With our regular columnist Moritz away on vacation this week, this week’s Videodrome is presented by Daniel and Gareth. They’ve each chosen their favorite videos from the past week; hope you enjoy!
1.Teeth – Care Bear
The UK synthpunk group are prepping their debut LP this year; enjoy the Youtube drag aesthetic of one of their most vicious tracks.
2.Cults – Go Outside
Montage that amalgamates news footage of the Jonestown Massacre with clips of the band performing seamlessley. Did someone say amazing?
3.How to Dress Well – Decisions
Tom Krell makes some of the most emotional music I’ve ever heard. ‘Decisions’ is an in-depth look on the process of making his latest EP ‘Just Once’.
4. IFEEL Studio – Watching Stars over the Rubicon Beltway
Freshest 12″ on Uruguay’s International Feel is a cosmic trip through animated universes, complete with the space machines of fifties futurism.
5. Hercules & Love Affair – Painted Eyes
Hercules have a knack for capturing the feel of their fantasy-world late-night disco with their videos, and the elegant, trailing beauty of ‘Painted Eyes’ is no exception.
6.Lil B – Out The Hood
Short video, hard emotion. Based realness. Hater-free.
7.Death Grips – Beware
Thanks to NPR you can now stream the debut album of bright new things Cults. Sounding like the perfect ear candy for a hot summer day (like today) they create an infectious concoction of airy vocals, and bright melodies all brought togehter with a healthy dose of nostalgia.
The Brooklyn band’s debut is due May 31 and arrives via Lily Allen‘s Columbia sub-imprint In the Name Of. Happy listening folks.
