Every month Moritz Gayard sorts through the deluge of new music videos so you don’t have to.
Hey kids, sorry to say that your beloved Videodrome will be less frequent from now on. Starting with this edition, Videodrome will be a monthly feature grabbing the ten (or more) new music videos worthy of your attention. But that’s just the beginning—you saw our inaugural EB DOSSIER on Marijuana, right? Yes, we’re going to unveil are some exciting changes around here. Get comfortable and hit play… It’s about to get good.
#1 Eric Copeland – “Cheap Treat”, directed by Aaron Warren
Eric Copeland (of Black Dice) blew me away with his solo set back in September. Here’s his latest video teasing his new solo record, Limbo, out June 5th through Underwater Peoples.
#2 Danny Brown feat. Purity Ring – “25 Bucks”, directed by Norton
Detroit rap iconoclast Danny Brown as per usual.

#6 Ratking – “Canal”, directed by Eric K. Yue
NYC group Ratking consists of two emcees (Wiki & Hak) and a producer (Sporting Life). They have a new video joint out there and it’s dope, as those familiar with their world might expect.

If you’re into transcendental meditation, you’ll love this video from Tim Burgess—also known as the lead singer from the Charlatans.
#8 SZA ft Isaiah Rashad – “Warm Winds”, Directed by SZA & APLUS FILMZ
Lovely and mellow. That what the new a/v dispatch from SZA featuring Isaiah Rashad is. Surreal + beautiful = a perfect match.

Cómeme Records-sighning Carisma is the project of Buenos Aires DJ-producer duo Carolina Stegmayer and Ismael Pinkler. Get an idea, above.
