Videodrome 106 – This week’s best videos

In this week’s Videodrome: audio-visual joy from the likes of Kanye West, Pantatones, Westbam and many more to explore.


#1 M/M – “8 (Dub)”

A trippy video for an excellent track, M/M is Brooklyn’s Michael McGregor, and I actually can’t wait for more.


#2 DonChristian – “My Crew”, directed by Sam Jones

The first time DonChristian appeared on our radar was back when Le1f was releasing his first mixtape. Watch the video and you’ll feel the Le1f-vibe: high fashion, beautiful people and cool art direction.


#3 Pentatones – “Bonfire”, directed by Kristin Herziger

Last month, Pentatones released their first full-length and “Bonfire” is the killer track on it. Watch the accompanying video above.


#4 Postiljonen – “Atlantis”, directed by Ty Olson

In this video, which actually looks like a car commercial, you can learn what the music is like on SkyerPostiljonen‘s soon to be released album.


#5 Real Lies – “Deeper”, directed by Rollo Jackson

Real LiesWorld Peace/Deeper 12-inch is just the first drop of an awaited trilogy of 12″ releases on the up-and-coming London imprint Sweet Exile. Here music video director Rollo Jackson, who has made videos for the likes of Hot Chip and Squarepusher, has produced a pretty decent clip.


#6 Samantha’s Vacation – “Samantha’s Vacation”, directed by Christine Jones

Man, what’s going on with these clips for 12-inches? Back in the day you needed a major label contract in order to come up with a cool music video on a little budget. Here’s the second one this week, brought to you by the always inspiring L.I.E.S. imprint. Ace track!


#7 Westbam feat. Bernard Sumner – “She Wants”, directed by Johannes von Liebenstein

Maximilian Lenz aka Westbam has released another full-length album this year which is packed with collaborations. One of these collaborations has Bernhard Sumner of New Order-fame on top. Can you handle this?


#8 Sigur Rós – “Brennisteinn”

Woah. Cool new Sigur Ros track off of their Kveikur album, which was released earlier this year through XL Recordings.


#9 Kakkmaddafakka – “Someone New” (Roosevelt Remix), directed by Erlend Øye & Marcin Öz

Some days ago the Norwegians dropped their Erlend Øye-produced album Six Months Is A Long Time, here’s the Citron-esque video for the Roosevelt rework.


#10 Kayne West – “Black Skinhead”, directed by Nick Knight

Cant believe this is the first video for Kanye‘s Yeezus album. Pretty low budget and flat idea—or is it a leak of the unfinished version?
