Each week, Moritz Gayard rounds up the best new music videos so you don’t have to.
Yes, yes Videodrome is back. This week there are some new potentials to discover and I couldn’t resist including Rebecca Black in the game here and to ignore 1) the epic new Lana Del Rey short film, 2) the NIN short film, and the latest Daft Punk vid. Hope you’re down with my selection below.
#1 Rainer – “Satin”
Nicely casted new Rainer (Rebekah Raa and producer Casually Here) video for “Satin” from the London duo EP Hope / Satin / Glass / Dreams, released last month as a limited edition 10-inch vinyl via Kissability.
#2 Planningtorock – “Human Drama”, dir. P2R
Planningtorock’s new album, All Love’s Legal, will be out February 10, 2014, but she’s now released another cool video for her second single, following instrumental opener “Welcome.”
#3 Vapauteen – “Basilisk”
Always L.I.E.S. Here it’s the video for NYC producer Shawn O’Sullivan’s “Basilisk”, taken off his EP Levine, which was out earlier this year on L.I.E.S.
#4 Rebecca Black & Dave Days – “Saturday”
I hope Rebecca Black releases an album with songs about every day of the week.
#5 Lee Bannon – “VALUE 10”
The always impressive beatsmith Lee Bannon is back and feeds us with the visuals for “VALUE 10”, off Alternate/Endings, which drops January 13th on Ninja Tune.
#6 Tinashe – “Vulnerable”
After the release of her Black Water mixtape, Tinashe unveils this new hypnotic, dance video above for “Vulnerable” with choreography by JaQuel Knight.
#7 Gold Skull – “JAP”
One of my favorites for the video of the year.
#8 Black Deer – “Strike 3”
Willie Burns killed it earlier this year with his Tab Of Acid release on Trilogy Tapes, now after some re-adjustments he’s releasing under his Black Deer moniker again.
#9 Colo – “Holidays”, directed by Blanco Studio
Colo, the London duo formally known as the gabba-esque live act Transonic Storm, finally have slowed down the BPMs, so consuming their new, moody b/w video is much more enjoyable.
#10 ECCO2K – “HOLDMEDOWNLIKEGRAVITY”
New, distorted visuals for Swedish young gunner ECCO2k, who rolls with the Gravity Boys Gang. Production by White Armor and Yung Sherman is on another level. ~
