The very first video selection of July 2013 has quite a variety on offer. Try Gucci Mane‘s insane “Trap House 3”, the classy animation for the first new Moderat-tune—made by our pals of Pfadfinderei. Then there’s David Lynch: his debut video for the unstoppable Nine Inch Nails has debuted online. Also the first new track/video from, yes, The Pixies, plus the Marcus Söderlund-directed video for Mount Kimbie‘s “You Took Your Time”. Press play below.
#1 Gucci Mane feat. Rick Ross – “Trap House 3”, directed by DRE films
Watch how Gucci Mane and Rick Ross become dope dealers in the video for “Trap House 3”. Also worth checking out Slackk’s recommendation of Gucci Mane’s Trap God 2 while listening to the whole Trap House 3 album over at his Bandcamp.
#2 The Weeknd – “Kiss Land”
All we know is that The Weeknd‘s album, Kiss Land is about to drop later this year. The title track has got its own little, Japan-inspired video.
#3 Dirty Beaches – “I Dream in Neon”, directed by Michael Lawrence
Dirty Beaches are beautiful. Filmed in Berlin and Hamburg by night, this video is for “Drifters”, taken from Alex Zhang Hungtai aka Dirty Beaches’ Drifters/Love Is the Devil LP—which is an amazing album.
#4 Dan Bodan – “Anonymous”, directed by Keaton Ventura & Greg Fong
In this pick, the Canada-born, Berlin-resident Dan Bodan offers some very relaxed grooves and an amazing video for his new track, entitled “Anonymous”.
#5 Moderat – “Bad Kingdom”, directed by Pfadfinderei
Moderat is about to strike back with their Bad Kingdom sophomore album, released through Monkeytown Records next month. Our colleagues and collaborators, the Berlin-based visual studio Pfadfinderei, have now unveiled this cool animation-video. Chapeau!
#6 Nine Inch Nails – “Came Back Haunted”, directed by David Lynch

#9 Wavves – “That’s On Me”, directed by Brandon Dermer
Watch an angry man destroying various items. There’s also some kind of a Nirvana moment here.
#10 Pixies – “Bagboy”, by LAMAR+NIK
Yes, The Pixies are back. Shortly after Kim Deal left the band (again), out of nowhere this track surfaced with the announcement of a european tour later this year with the bassist Kim Shattuck taking Deal’s place.~
