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. Below you’ve the chance to explore new music videos from the likes of Austra, Goldfrapp, Julia Holter, Asia Argento and many more.


#1 Austra – “Painful Like”, directed by Exploding Motor Car

Toronto-based Austra have premiered a slimy new music video for their second Olympia single “Painful Like.” I think this works really well.


#2 CocoRosie – “Child Bride”, directed by Emma Freeman

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.


#3 DJ Rashad + DJ Spinn – “She Turnt Up”, directed by by Jon Casey

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

Beautiful erotic B&W shots and of course NSFW. It doesn’t sound like other Goldfrapp music I’ve heard before, but I do like it. Taken from their sixth album Tales of Us out soon via Mute.


#5 Julia Holter – “In The Green Wild”, directed by Yelena Zhelezov

Wow, how gloriously weird is this new Julia Holter video for “In The Green Wild”, directed by Yelena Zhelezov. Taken from her forthcoming Domino Records debut Loud City Song.


#6 Asia Argento feat. Morgan – “Sexodrome”

Another NSFW music video from Asia‘s August release Total Entropy, featuring the likes of Anton Newcombe, Tim Burgess and Munk.


#7 Zebra Katz – “Lst Ctrl”, directed by Matthew Donaldson

Today The Katz is back with a dope new video for his track “Lst Ctrl”, a dark number that finds Zebra Katz once again showing off his special talents.


#8 Earl Sweatshirt featuring Vince Staples & Casey Veggies – “Hive”, directed by Hiro Murai

New video for “Hive”, taken from Earl Sweatshirt‘s upcoming Doris album. Yikes, looks like the kid’s learned something!


#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? ~
