Videodrome #62 – This week’s best videos
Explore new videos with Pet Shop Boys, Malka Spigel, Two Inch Punch, Dan Deacon and many more.
#1 Black Lips – Noc-A-Homa, Directed by Sandy Kim
The Atlantan punks dick around in baseball jerseys in what turns out to be a somewhat surreal number.
#2 Pet Shop Boys – Winner
Nobody manages to capture that particular strain of low-key sentimentality quite like the Pet Shop Boys.
#3 Slackk – Blue Sleet, directed by Natalia Stuyk
The oh-so-stylishly dated graphics gel well with Slackk’s retro-futurist synths.
#4 Dak- Youstandit, directed by Miko Revereza
The woozy hallmarks of the LA Beat scene are all over Dak’s latest offering.
#5 ScHoolboy Q – There He Go, directed by David M. Helman
A standout track from ScHoolboy Q’s Habits & Contradictions LP is given the video treatment, with a cute cameo from Q’s daughter.
#6 Malka Spigel – See It Sideways, directed by Renate Zeigermann
Malka Spigel loiters around London’s Liverpool Street, like you do.
#7 The Orb feat. Lee Scratch Perry – Golden Clouds, directed by Volker Schaner and Mike Coles
Well, this is strangely disturbing. Like walking into the final throes of a three-day long bender. Someone’s got the number of a very reliable dealer.
#8 Dusk + Blackdown – Dasaflex
The lead single from their forthcoming record on Keysound. Excited doesn’t cover it.
#9 Two Inch Punch – Digital Love Letters, edited by Matt Cronin
MS-DOS and 5 1/4-inch floppy diskettes are always cool, right?
#10 Dan Deacon – True Thrush, directed by Dan Deacon and Ben O’Brien
Dan Deacon – True Thrush von domino
A cute, colourful concept from Dan Deacon featuring a bunch of Baltimore artists. What’s not to like?
