Yes, summer has finally arrived in Berlin and what’s better than hanging out on your balcony and watching non-stop music videos? Last night I did this until the Gesaffelstein vid played a bit too loud and my neighbors were screaming. Even in Neukölln this happens. I just continued with my headphones; nothing will stop me from bringing you the best music videos each week:
#1 No Age – “C’mon Stimmung”, directed by No Age
The cool dudes from No Age just released this funny, self-made collage for the first single of their anticipated new album An Object.
#2 Black Atlass – “Paris”, directed by Paul Labonté
Fools Gold signee Black Atlass drops his latest visual for “Paris”. Watch the nicely filmed black and white video and get an idea what happens when you merge Woodkid with James Blake…
#3 These New Puritans – “Fragment Two”, directed by Daniel Askill
TNP teamed up with Daniel Askill again for their infectious “Fragment Two” video, taken from the Field Of Reeds LP. If you ask me, they should never ever commission a vid with anybody else.
#4 Salvia Plath – “Bardo States”, directed by Sasha Desree & Renee Clark
Mike Collins is mah man. Formally working under the moniker of RunDMT, he recently transformed into Salvia Plath. His ’60s retro-pop full-length entitled The Bardo Story drops soon via Domino.
#5 Gesaffelstein — “Pursuit”, directed by Fleur & Manu
Man, this is full-on goofy French techno. Monsieur Gesaffelstein, who recently worked with Daft Punk and Kanye West, is about to release his next full-length later this year. Devour this as an appetizer.
#6 Young Galaxy – “New Summer”, directed by Ivan Grbovic
Summer vibes. What looks like a soft version of a Romain Gavras video actually turns out to be the new promo-clip for Canadian electro-poppers Young Galaxy. Heavily CGI-made.
#7 Marie Davidson – “Esthétique privée”, directed by Xander Robin
Delicious minimal electronic music from Montreal’s Marie Davidson. Watch the pretty dark video above and in the case of liking, check out the rest of her self-titled EP over on her bandcamp.
#8 Matias Aguayo – “Levantate Diegors”, directed by George Issakidis
Enjoy this song from Matias Aguayo’s forthcoming album The Visitor out June 24th on Cómeme.
#9 Fat Tony – “Hood Party”
Not really familiar with Fat Tony but all this vid is kinda wicked. Anyone up for a Skype party?
#10 Telonius “Kiss Your Face”, directed by Bureau Mirko Borsche
Future disco funk from Telonius. Art direction, graphics and illustration by Mirko Borsche, track is out now on Gomma Dance Tracks.~
