We love you, France. You always seem to churn out the most fun electropop around. While performer Rikslyd may be originally Norwegian-based, her current city of Paris and associations with other underground pop divas like Butterclock make her (in our eyes anyway) an official part of the modern French Wave of Weird.
We’re pleased to bring you the world premier of Rikslyd’s latest video ‘Techno Club’. Directed by Maja Bergström, it’s a magical, scandalous adventure through a curious cabinet. Enter a B&W world of living S&M dolls with Diis and the artist collective House of Drama. Editing cuts tease and trick the eye as sexual chimeras evaporate just as quickly as they are formed. Is this how the French intelligentsia go clubbing? Meursault horny.
Here’s the seventh edition of our weekly music video update called V I D E O D R O M E. Enjoy!
1. Rikslyd – All in Love? (dir.?)
Rikslyd is the Paris-via-Norway project of Diis Paradiis. She describes her music as "Champagne Electro" – which sounds pretty fitting.
2. Jealov – DCW (directed by Jealov)
Dreamy hip hop is the best described Jealov. At first listen the ambient ‘DCW’ suddenly becomes a true hip hop beat without much realization.
3. Death Grips – Culture Shock (directed by Jesse Hegney)
4. Dom – Living In America (dir.?)
Above is the latest video for DOM‘s single ‘Living in America’ off of last years Sun Bronzed Greek Gods EP.
5. Frank Ocean – Novacane (directed by Nabil Elderkin)
Frank Ocean drops his newest visual for his song ‘Novacane’, and the thick slowness of the title’s namesake fits the video perfectly.
6. IE – Dungeon of Drunk Girls (footage of So Cal Party Crews)
7. Jonti – Firework Spraying Moon (directed by Henry DeMaio)
8. Diva – Glow Worm (directed by Lily X. Wahrman)
Digging the new Diva video. Her new album The Glitter End drops in August via Critical Heights.
9. Vybz Kartel – Go Go Wine (directed by Patrick Fraser)
‘Go Go Wine’ is the first official single off the highly-anticipated Vybz Kartel album Kingston Story. Video is based around a strippers as the song title suggests. Neat.
10. DAVIDA – My Rubber Room (directed by ?)
Part Time frontman Davida Loca just posted this video on his facebook, and it’s on heavy rotation here. Check it out!
