Videodrome 139 – This week’s best videos
Each week, Moritz Gayard rounds up the best new music videos so you don’t have to.
New week, new Videodrome. Today packs the ‘new James Blake’ aka Oceaán, a fresh CGI-ed video by Luis Cerveró of CANADA-fame for the mighty Liars. Plus Rick Ross and Nacando are visiting my drome, alongside upcoming kid Shamir, presenting his self-directed video. Have fun…
#1 Nocando – “Never Looked Better”, directed by Aaron Bennet
This track by Nocando is both hilarious and sad, while the visuals are directed by Aaron Bennet. Taken from the album Jimmy the Burnout, which is available through Hellfyre Club.
#2 Sylvan Esso – “Coffee”, directed by Dan Huiting
Very mellow but dope. From their debut album to be released on May 12th through Partisan Records.
#3 Shamir – “If It Wasn’t True”, self-directed
This song is almost too amazing to be coming from some 19 year old kid.
#4 Sunn O))) & Ulver – “Let There Be Light”, directed by Adam B Daniels
Drone music is so weird. Sunn O))) make me feel like I don’t exist and the world is a lie. Which is probably what they’re going for. Am I rite?
#5 Liars – “Mess On a Mission”, directed by Luis Cerveró
Liars have ushered some progress into modern rock since their inception—and it looks like they’re going to continue that way.
#6 Shy Girls – “Voyeur’s Gaze”, directed by Tony Lowe
Here’s the new glamorous, chest hair-laden video for Shy Girls’ groovy jam “Voyeur’s Gaze”. The track is off the Timeshare EP, which came out last fall.
#7 Holy Ghost! – “Bridge & Tunnel”, Directed by Ben Fries
Get a glimpse of NYC’s electronic duo Holy Ghost! tour life in the video for the Dynamics track “Bridge & Tunnel”.
#8 Rick Ross – “The Devil Is A Lie”, directed by Christopher Sims
Rick Ross and Jay-Z are out of their minds—Mastermind finally in stores now.
#9 Oceaán – “To Lose”, directed by Jodie Canwell
