Words by moritz.schmall

If you’ve been too busy to watch music videos over the last few days you’ve missed out on some of this week’s hottest releases from the likes of Seams, No Age, Major Lazer and These New Puritans. To remedy this, do yourself a favor and check below’s update. Oh, and this list contains no Gaga.

 

#1 Fhloston Paradigm – “Chasing Rainbows”, directed by Keagan Anfuso

According to their tumblr, this is a “manifestation of afro futurist ideals”. Anyway, Fhloston Paradigm is King Britt’s project on Kode9′s Hyperdub label and I like it a lot.

 

#2 No Age – “An Impression”, directed by Randy Randall & Dean Spunt

As an appetizer for their An Object release, L.A. noise rock group No Age has shared the video for their first single “An Impression”, a self-directed art/concept video where not much happens.

 

#3 Seams – “Rilo”, directed by Jonathan Pound

New tune taken from Seams forthcoming album, Quarters due out in mid-September via Full Time Hobby, which was recorded in four different areas around Berlin. If it’s anything like this tune, the album should be worth a listen.

 

#4 Big Sean ft. Kendrick Lamar – “Control”, directed By Negro Tarantino

I DON’T SMOKE CRACK / MOTHAFUCKA, I SELL IT!

 

#5 Major Lazer feat. Peaches Timberlee – “Scare Me” , directed by Brandon Dermer
