Here’s your weekly dose of music videos, with Kuhrye-oo, DIIV, Actress, DAHGA BLOOM, PAWS, Black Dice, Bedroom, iamamiwhoami, Girl Unit and Dent May. Enjoy!
#1 Kuhrye-oo – For The Fame II (directed by Calvin McElroy & Claire Boucher)
Incredible new track by the uber-talented Canadian producer. ‘For The Fame II’ has a cool post R’n’B groove that makes me wanna daaaance.
#2 DIIV (formerly Dive) – Corvalis (directed by Jonas Wedelstädt)
I generally don’t get too excited about guitar pop, but there’s something about this particular song that has me hooked. Plus the unofficial, fan-made video is just so nice!
#3 Actress – IWAAD (directed by Nic Hamilton)
3D artist Nic Hamilton has created an unofficial video for ‘Iwaad’, taken from Actress’ latest release R.I.P.
#4 DAHGA BLOOM – ZUZU (dir.?)
Guitars again! Can’t stop listening to this song. If you’re down for some L.A. psychedelic rock, watch this video above.
#5 PAWS – Misled Youth (directed by Phillip Taylo)
After supporting the likes of Dum Dum Girls, Wavves, and Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, now time has come for the video for ‘Misled Youth’, which is short but fun – watch.
#6 Black Dice – Rodriguez (self-directed)
This one’s directed by the band themselves. Their new album Mr. Impossible is currently available through Ribbon Music.
#7 Bedroom – Trees (dir.?)
Off Bedroom’s forthcoming full-length Vivid, set to be released next month. This 16 year-old bedroom musician only dropped his debut EP in February, available to stream over at his Bandcamp.
#8 iamamiwhoami – rascal (dir.?)
The iamamiwhoami videos keep getting more and more stunning. This is the next chapter is the everlasting series of very, very, very well-made videos by iamamiwhoami. Watch it!
#9 Girl Unit – Club Rez EP (dir.?)
Not a music video, but a teaser. I’m with Night Slugs forever. Nothing more to add.
#10 Dent May – Best Friend (directed by James Alexander Warren)
Initially premiered by our friends at No Fear of Pop, this is a seriously amazing video. “You swam out and rescued me.”
It only took a few minutes to unleash a barrage of opinion – good and bad – when NPR.org started streaming Panda Bear‘s long awaited new album Tomboy yesterday. After a year-long run of 7" singles, live bootlegs and non-album teasers the third full-length of Noah Lennox finally drops on April 15th via his own imprint Paw Tracks.
After listening to what is widely regarded as one of the most promising contenders for the best record of the year, we can confirm that (for us at least) the Animal Collective member does no disappoint.
Listen to Tomboy over at NPR.org where you will also find a guest mix from Lennox which combines music that influenced his youth with contemporary picks of his collaborators such as Dent May, Zomby or his Animal Collective bandmate Avey Tare.
