Videodrome #48 – This week’s best videos

In the need for something visually refreshing? Chill your mind with a new selection of fresh music videos.

#1 Alt J – Breezeblocks (directed by Ellis Bahl)

New video for a new song by Cambridge-based band Alt-J (?). Dark, clever and weird; besides which, it runs backwards.

///

#2 Django Django – Storm (directed by Focus Creeps)

This is off Django Django‘s self-titled album released in January, and that funk groove is seriously putting them on a similar level as contemporaries Hot Chip. Still my favorite debut in 2012.

///

#3 CYMBALS – No Bad Decisions (directed by Daniel Brereton)

This new Daniel Brereton-directed video comes just a few days before the release of four-piece CYMBALS’ long-awaited EP Sideways, Sometimes, hitting shelves on the 23rd of April.

///

#4 Feist – Bittersweet Melodies (directed by Holle Singer)

Feist plays the role of a time-traveling doctor (which sounds oddly familiar) in her latest music video, a beautifully-shot film directed by Holle Singer, that uses famous images by Argentinian photographer Irina Werning.

///

#5 Karl Vorndran – Bound and Folded (directed by Karl Vorndran)

From Karl Vorndran’s Thawing cassette on RCN Recordings. According to Google, all sounds on Thawing were made on a custom euro rack modular synthesizer.

///

#6 Orbique – Lost in You (directed by akustikfilm)

Pure electronica taken from their Always Now Never After album, released soon via rec72.net.

///

#7 Mobbin No Sobbin – Fancy Schmancy (directed by Ian Bernick)

Mobbin No Sobbin Western Tink dropped his anticipated mini-mixtape Chillin Like A Civilian some days ago. Produced by Beautiful Lou, with features from Green Ova friends Main Attrakionz and Shady Blaze. Eat a tear.

///

#8 Pins – Eleventh Hour (directed by Sing J. Lee)

Stylish Sing J. Lee-directed footage for Pins’ dark hypnotic pop number ‘Eleventh Hour’, also the first single from the Manchester four-piece.

///

#9 Analogue Monsta – Time To (directed by The Great Nordic Sword Fights)

This shit is dope. Thug from Beyond, a tripped-out, acid-laced video by Scion A/V above.

///

#10.1 Drake f/ Lil Wayne – HYFR (directed by X (Little X)

#10.2 Drake – Take Care Feat. Rihanna (directed by Yoann Lemoine)

I’m sure you’ve all seen these Drake videos but if you haven’t, enjoy.
