Videodrome #16 - This week's best videos

2. James Pants – Clouds Over The Pacific (direcetd by Iasos)

James Pants‘ video for “Clouds Over The Pacific” brings to mind MTV at 1 a.m. in the late 90’s. Space out, hit the bong, do what you gotta do. But watch the video above.


3. LCMDF – Take Me To The Mountains (dir.?)

LCMDF (I don’t think we are allowed to call them Le Corps Mince De Françoise anymore) are gearing up for the release of their next single “Take Me To The Mountains”. Here’s the video, suitably raw and raucous for LCMDF, as is the track, but insanely catchy too.


4. Jamie XX – Far Nearer (TORKEL Remix) (dir.?)

This song is the bomb. Once again Jamie xx is pumping out beats that threaten to make my heart stop. Electro style steel drums? Hell yeah! Just listen, it’s great.


5. Chromeo – When The Night Falls (directed by Daniels)

Electrofunk maestros Chromeo present the video for their track, “When The Night Falls”, from last year’s album, “Business Casual”. The video sees P-Thugg and Dave 1 being chased by a zombie-like mob of expectant mothers.


6. Maria Minerva – Ruff Trade (direcetd by Joonatan Allandi)

Ave Maria! Who’s not in love with the amazing Maria Minerva, the Estonian student who releases her new track on mysterious disco label 100% Silk? Gotta say yes.


7. Echo Lake – Breathe Deep (directed by Rob Heppell)

This psychedelic new video from Echo Lake was shot in London, and it’s a truly trippy piece. The track appears on Echo Lake’s “Breathe Deep / Another Day” 7? single out now via No Pain In Pop.


8. MAYa – Embrace Comfort (direcetd by Kenneth Zoran Curwood)

This excellent video which was premiered last week over at the dudes of Pendu was shot by Kenneth Zoran Curwood for their latest EP called “M” – out soon through Discalcula.


9. Fostercare – Burn this City (directed by Fostercare)

“Burn this City” the latest release from Fostercare has everything we love: dark content, rap and rave plus big beatz. How do we call this genre? Maybe: Future primitive okkvlt urban tribal juntz. You name it.


10. Bon Iver – Holocene (directed by Nabil)

Nabil a filmmaker best known for his work with hip-hop artists, has directed a beautifully tranquil new video for Bon Iver‘s track “Holocene”. It features a boy on a trip through Iceland’s nature, perfectly complementing the voice of Justin Vernon.
