New week, new Videodrome with amazing clips from artistst ranging from Dizzee Rascal to Sleigh Bells to Kingdom via Jay Z to Zola Jesus. Have fun!
#1 Dizzee Rascal – “I Don’t Need A Reason”, directed by Emile Sornin
Nice 18th century aristocrat fashion-inspired clip with some simple but effective looping effects for Dizzee’s “I Don’t Need A Reason” from his new album The Fifth—which is released later this year and features collaborations with Jessie J, Calvin Harris, Tinie Tempah and more.
#2 Goldfrapp – “Annabel”
Goldfrapp have debuted the music video for the latest cut from their upcoming sixth studio album Tales of Us. “When you dream / you only dream / you’re Annabel.”
#3 White Poppy – “Dizzy”, STRAWBERRYJACUZZI
White Poppy is the solo project of the British Columbia-based Crystal Dorval, above you can get an idea—you’ll find more in her The White Poppy LP, out now via Not Not Fun.
#4 Jolie Wanker – “Jolie Like Dat”, self-directed
Great new video from french beat maker Jolie Wanker. Full fun video, which experiments with extracts from the legendary Soul Train.
#5 Sleigh Bells – “Bitter Rivals”
The mighty Sleigh Bells are back! Watch the new video for Bitter Rivals!
#6 Zola Jesus – “Fall Back” (Versions)
A beautiful song, and a gorgeous, minimalist, black-and-white video with striking images. Zola, je te kiffe.
#7 King Krule – “Easy Easy”
Don’t like King Krule? Take it easy. Youth is truth and punk has a new outfit on.
#8 Dj Khaled Feat. Nicki Minaj, Future & Rick Ross – “I Wanna Be With You”, directed by Colin Tilley
The video is directed by Colin Tilley. This song is off Khaled’s new album Suffering From Success, which is set to hit stores in October. #Nickiallnightlong
#9 Kingdom – “Bank Head” (feat. Kelela) , Directed by Jude MC
Thought provoking and creative. The lead single from Los Angeles producer Kingdom‘s fifth EP Vertical XL, “Bank Head” is definitely one of my favourite tracks of the year , so this mystical visual treatment is most welcome.
#10 Death Grips – “Birds”, dir Shrek Mangum
Death Grips will apparently issue a new LP sometime in 2014 via their own Thirdworlds imprint. In the meantime, check the cool fan-made video.
