Videodrome 107 – This week’s best videos

Summertime in Berlin and the holiday season is in full effect. What’s more it’s 30C in the office, our coffee machine has stopped working and on top of this? A new Carambolage table without cue sticks, right in the middle of our working area. But looking into the Tweets and feeds, the stream of brand new videos seems to be unstoppable.

Once again the CocoRosie sisters channel their dark, esoteric visuals in the video for Tales Of A Grass Widow track “Child Bride” in a unique way. So good, so sad.

Ok, the Chicago-rooted juke/footwork sound is on a roll. After falling deeply in love with Rashad‘s “I Don’t Give a Fuck” 12-inch, here’s the next banger.

 

#4 Goldfrapp – “Drew”, directed by Lisa Gunning

#9 Teams – “One World 開発”

Is there anything you need more than a good dose of future bass mixed with R&B and weird samples? OneWorld開発” is TEAMS‘s second full-length release and his debut on Fin Recordings. And it’s brilliant.

 

#10 Classixx feat. Nancy Whang  – “All You’re Waiting For”, directed by Tim K

This is the new video for Classixx’s All you’re waiting for. I love it. Classixx is such a good band and I wonder if Nancy Whang is ever going to make an album of her own? ~
