Some days you click an article and it’s a bunch of facts or news about what’s going on in the world, like a guy getting his face fucking chewed off by another guy in Florida or all the insane political sadness happening in Greece. Sometimes, though, it’s a bunch of videos. Guess which one this is.
1. Light Asylum – Heart of Dust
Not one of my favorite tracks off the new album but the sweet appearances by Zana Bayne harnesses, yin-yang fingernails, and glittery ooze make me feel tumblrtastic.
2. Bestial Mouths – Small Prey
God I love these kids. They just keep getting better and better. The video version of desert rager ‘Small Prey’ brings out the synths a bit more than the LP version too.
3. Nostalghia – Cool For Chaos
Gothified Bat For Lashes by way of an IRL elf. Beautiful madness.
4. Fatima Al Qadiri – D-Medley
“THE ENDING IS AWESOME CUZ ITS LIKE, OMG IT WAS? ALL ON A CMPUTER?”

5. Sleigh Bells – Demons
I thought this was pretty indicative of an actual live performance, an opinion which I guess could be taken a couple different ways.
6. Blood Orange – I’m Sorry We Lied
7. Dreamers – Appaloosa
One of the quieter tracks from their fantastic debut album. Something about pregnancy in a car and some clown mask guys, but hey, whatever happened to the band Appaloosa? They had that one really pretty song and then disappeared. Sad.
8. Charlene Bagcal – Solace
Whenever I guest on the Videodrome, I like to throw in a fashion film. What can I say, I’m a whore for style. This one is special, however, because the soundtrack is a gorgeous remix of Chelsea Wolfe‘s ‘Virginia Woolf Underwater’ remixed by Revelator. A long row of hearts followed by some blingee glitter: imagine it.
