Videodrome 147 – This month’s best videos

Words by moritz.schmall

Every month, Moritz Gayard sifts through the deluge of new music videos so you don’t have to.

Let’s dive into the A/V world once again. This month, I fell in love with the shockingly talented and mysterious Minnesota-based artist Spooky Black—that’s his video below, in the first spot. There’s also an instant classic from LA-duo 18+, fresh material from Berlin-based artists Call Super and Low Concept (AKA Physical Therapy and Renaissance Man), and much more.

#1 Spooky Black – “Reason”, directed by Harry Sutherland

I’m heavily addicted to this young lad. His aesthetic is pretty shocking; this particular clip is rife with dark pop elements, visual static, censorship, and wind simulation.

#2 18+ – “Crow”, self-directed

Don’t miss 18+’s nice little vid for their catchy track “Crow.” It shows nothing but befuddling, grainy, black and white images.

#3 Sasha Go Hard – “My Story, directed by @apjfilms

In her latest video, Chicago rapper Sasha Go Hard takes everyone on a trip down memory lane in her latest visual, “My Story.” This joint can be found on Sasha’s Feels So Good mixtape.

#4 Girl Band – “De Bom Bom”

Bring the noise! Here’s a  kaleidoscopic clip for GB’s rip-roaring new single. If you’re in Berlin, don’t miss their live gig at ACUD this Saturday.

#5 Suuns – “Sunspot”, directed by Ben Shemie

Suuns has revealed the follow-up to last year’s Images Du Future LP: a 30+ music video for their glorious post-punk track “Sunspot,” which features extensive footage of compulsive hand-washing. Watch the full extravaganza above.

#6 FaltyDL – “New Haven”, directed by Blair Neal & Kyle McDonald

Another standout video from of VICE’s Creators Project for Ninja Tune sweetheart FaltyDL.

#8 Low Concept – “Bugz”, self-directed

Next week, Physical Therapy and Renaissance Man will unleash their debut EP as Low Concept. Since I can’t wait for the full release, I’ve been watching this video over and over again.

#9 Call Super – “Sulu Sekou”, directed by Lydia Corry

Berlin-based artist Call Super drops some unexpectedly minimal compositions here. This one is from his debut album, which is absolute fire and drops later this month.

#10 Shabazz Palaces – “#CAKE”, directed by Hiro Murai

Here we have a pretty mind-blowing video from another one of our favorite records of the year, Shabazz Palaces’ Lese Majesty. This one is for “#CAKE.” It’s out now on Sub Pop.

#11 Lee Gamble — “Mimas Skank”, directed by Dave Gaskarth

Birmingham-via-London based designer Dave Gaskarth has crafted this stunning video for Lee Gamble’s “Mimas Skank.” Check it out before his highly-anticipated PAN LP arrives in a few weeks.

#12 Jabu – “Chamber”, directed by Harry Wright

This was just what I needed. Jabu’s new video, the dark and moody “Chamber,” is the follow-up to his astonishing Kwadian EP from last month.
