Videodrome 115 – This week’s best videos
Every week, Moritz Gayard rounds up the best new music videos, so you don’t have to.
Looks like 9/9 at 9pm is a pretty prominent date for releasing music videos these days. The hype started with Arcade Fire, who dropped two boring videos for their dated music. Then there was Eminem trying to promote his album and video during a NFL halftime show. But this epic fail was not the end of the 9/9 drama. Also there’s new material from Terry Richardson. The lolitographer directed the new Miley video, which you’ll find in my list below. Also to explore: Iggy Azelia, Nicki Minaj, Tricky and the wonderful new band Oceaán. Have fun.
#1 Rainer – “Girls”, directed by Rainer
A perfect match of music and image. Fresh new sounds from London duo Rainer (Rebekah Raa and producer Casually Here) taken from their debut double A-side single ‘Money/ Girls’, which is out today via ASL Records.
#2 The Hics – “Tangle”
Some weeks ago, I stumbled over the refreshing beats from South Londoners The Hics. Now their very first video is out for the mesmerizing title-track, “Tangle” from their new EP.
#3 Tricky feat. The Antlers – “Parenthesis”, directed by Tricky
Moody video for “Parenthesis”, a standout track on Tricky‘s 2013 LP False Idols. With vocals from Peter Silberman of Antlers.
#4 Oceaán – “Neéd U”, directed by Oceaán and Luca Rudlin
Out of Manchester, this mysterious producer Oliver Caen, aka Oceaán, is one of my favorites of the year. Stay tuned for much more to come.
#5 Kobosil – “Aggregate”, dir. the29novENCORE
Released by Ostgut Ton’s sub label Unterton here’s the unofficial video for “Aggregate”. Turn up the bass.
#6 J. Krawietz – “Litost”, directed by Alby Álamo
The inspiring Decoder Magazine unveiled this nice, little video for spanish producer Javier Krawietz track “Litost”.
#7 Miley Cyrus – “Wrecking Ball”, directed by Terry Richardson
Man, I love Miley but I do think that the Richardson-aesthetic is somewhat dated.
#8 Aleph – “Fourth Way”, directed by Gero Doll
Canadian record label collective King Deluxe dropped a new video for Aleph’s track “Fourth Way”. And if you haven’t heard about him, take it easy—he hails from Siberia.
#9 Iggy Azalea ft. T.I. – “Change Your Life”, directed by Jonas and Francois
Australia’s rap queen Iggy is back with a lil vieo for her T.I. collaboration. Iggy, I am with you.
#10 Nicki Minaj – “I Don’t Give A”
Here’s the stunning one minute tour clip for Nicki Minajs verve Modanonna’s “I Don’t Give A”, taken from the official MDNA Tour DVD.~
