Videodrome #52 – This week’s best videos
Here’s your weekly dose of music videos, with Kuhrye-oo, DIIV, Actress, DAHGA BLOOM, PAWS, Black Dice, Bedroom, iamamiwhoami, Girl Unit and Dent May. Enjoy!
#1 Kuhrye-oo – For The Fame II (directed by Calvin McElroy & Claire Boucher)
Incredible new track by the uber-talented Canadian producer. ‘For The Fame II’ has a cool post R’n’B groove that makes me wanna daaaance.
#2 DIIV (formerly Dive) – Corvalis (directed by Jonas Wedelstädt)
I generally don’t get too excited about guitar pop, but there’s something about this particular song that has me hooked. Plus the unofficial, fan-made video is just so nice!
#3 Actress – IWAAD (directed by Nic Hamilton)
3D artist Nic Hamilton has created an unofficial video for ‘Iwaad’, taken from Actress’ latest release R.I.P.
#4 DAHGA BLOOM – ZUZU (dir.?)
Guitars again! Can’t stop listening to this song. If you’re down for some L.A. psychedelic rock, watch this video above.
#5 PAWS – Misled Youth (directed by Phillip Taylo)
After supporting the likes of Dum Dum Girls, Wavves, and Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, now time has come for the video for ‘Misled Youth’, which is short but fun – watch.
#6 Black Dice – Rodriguez (self-directed)
This one’s directed by the band themselves. Their new album Mr. Impossible is currently available through Ribbon Music.
#7 Bedroom – Trees (dir.?)
Off Bedroom’s forthcoming full-length Vivid, set to be released next month. This 16 year-old bedroom musician only dropped his debut EP in February, available to stream over at his Bandcamp.
#8 iamamiwhoami – rascal (dir.?)
The iamamiwhoami videos keep getting more and more stunning. This is the next chapter is the everlasting series of very, very, very well-made videos by iamamiwhoami. Watch it!
#9 Girl Unit – Club Rez EP (dir.?)
Not a music video, but a teaser. I’m with Night Slugs forever. Nothing more to add.
#10 Dent May – Best Friend (directed by James Alexander Warren)
Initially premiered by our friends at No Fear of Pop, this is a seriously amazing video. “You swam out and rescued me.”
