Videodrome 66 – This week’s best videos
It’s been a relatively slow week for music videos, with some exceptional highlights from the likes of Old Apparatus, Sic Alps, Slim Twig and, as you might have heard, Korea’s Psy, whose entertaining video for the stellar ‘Gangnam Style’ has already gotten some twenty million hits over the past few days.
#0 2 Chainz ft. Kanye West – Birthday Song, directed by Andreas Nilsson
I never thought we’d feature a 2 Chainz video on EB.net, but this is just too inspiring.
#1 Old Apparatus – Realise, dir.?
Surprisingly cool self-made video by mysterious London-based audio visual collective Old Apparatus, off their forthcoming self-titled EP out next week.
#2 Zebra Katz X Boyfriend – W8WTF, directed by Ursula Mann
Wait, what the fuck? Some more dark minimalism from Zebra Fucking Katz. So good.
#3 Azealia Banks – 1991, directed by Justin Mitchell
Miss Banks offers up some visuals for the nostalgic deep house single appropriately titled ‘1991’. Hope to see her first full length sometime soon.
#4 Psy – Gangnam Style, dir.
After watching this hilarious video, all I could think was how lame those melodramatic, story-telling videos featuring young, good looking Brits/Americans really are.
#5 Heart Streets – Nonchalant, dir.?
Heart Streets are from Montreal and they’ve been receiving quite a bit of attention for their video of single ‘Nonchalant’. Believe the hype?
#6 Wodorfski – Blackfriars Rd, dir. ?
There’s hardly any information available on Wodorfski. After a short search, all I came up with was some Facebook page and a link to their London-based Chic Marionnette label. Nice video, though.
#7 Ricardo Donoso – From Sterling to Snow, directed by Pierce Warnecke.
Don’t expect too much to happen in this video for silent burner ‘From Sterling to Snow’ crafted by Pierce Warnecke for Rio de Janeiro-born atist Ricardo Donoso. Donoso will soon be releasing a new EP via Digitalis.
#8 Professor Possessor – Baby, It’s Magic, directed by Matt Diebler & Jacob Gillman
After the ‘Valley Girl’ video, which I posted here a few weeks ago, here’s the Professor’s next home run. Simply magic. Give it up for day-glo synths!
#9 Trash Talk – F.E.B.N., directed Tyler, The Creator
Cali hardcore punk outfit Trash Talk are set to release their new full length album 119 in a couple months, and recently dropped a Tyler-direcetd video for the album’s debut single ‘F.E.B.N.’.
#10 Sic Alps – Glyphs, dir?
In anticipation of their self-titled LP on Drag City set to drop September 18, Sic Alps released some visual accompaniment for the lazy, stoner stroll of ‘Glyphs’.
#11 Slim Twig – Gun Shy, dir?
Canadian actor and musician Max Turnbull, aka Slim Twig, has unveiled a charming new video for the jangly, psych-sensible ‘Gun Shy’. The man is taking over this year.
