Videodrome #54 – This week’s best videos

Videodrome #54 - This week's best videos 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

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.
