Videodrome #42 – This week’s best videos
Another week – another round of living pictures handpicked by our editors. No filler, all killer.
#1 Nina Kraviz – Ghetto Kraviz (directed by David Terranova)
With her debut album released today this year’s house superstar Nina Kraviz drops some ghetto shit filmed on the streets of Berlin.
#2 Death Grips – Get Got (Director TBC)
Death Grips – Get Got from Death Grips on Vimeo.
So – Death Grips signed to Epic and plan to release two albums this very year. Well, let’s hope for the best. In the meantime indulge in his latest video clip and look forward to his European tour stops in the summer.
#3 Bon Iver – Towers (directed by NABIL)
Bon Iver – Towers (Official Music Video) from Bon Iver on Vimeo.
Frank Ocean‘s fav Nabil Elderkin directed just another little beauty for Grammy-winning indie crooner Bon Iver. Get your fykes and find your way to the shore where you will, erm, drown…
#4 Amplify Dot (A.Dot) – Ruckus (directed by 13 year old Jamal Woon!)
Never heard of A.Dot before? Well, you’d better. There’s a new school of female rappers out there in the UK that deserves your full attention. Amplify Dot is one of them and has just released her eight track long EP Short Back & Sides yesterday. And now check for Lady Leshurr and Lioness while you’re at it.
#5 Buddy Bag – Swimming (directed by Kevin Luna)
BUDDY BAG /// SWIMMING from Kevin Luna on Vimeo.
This is different in so many ways. While Buddy Bag‘s dark noise punk is not our usual cup of tea the video unleashes the beast in the minds of the common people as we watch a pretty couple loosing it over a leopard scarf. Jump straight to the end if you need to calm down.
#6 Beirut – Vagabond (by Sunset Television)
Beirut – Vagabond from Sunset Television on Vimeo.
Beirut might not be the freshest artist on the planet anymore but the video for Vagabond is a real pretty black & white flick set in a quirky ballroom supposedly somewhere in Eastern Europe. Soldiers, girls, a band and a chicken. That’s life.
#7 Teeadora – Change (directed by Count Backwards)
Pure beauty. Teeadora’s take on Cat Power’s ‘Metal Heart’ is already a little gem. The video lets it shine even more so. Bittersweet from head to toe.
#8 Cocolores – Vox teaser (directed by Haze)
This is just a teaser but still not to be missed. We have already introduced you to Cocolores on EB Radio not so long ago. Now the youngsters from Munich are labeled the ‘return of nouveau Bavaria’, put out 90s inspired house music on Exploited Rec and will reveal the video in full on March 14th on their facebook page. Go Bavaria!
