This week I can smell the teen spirit, again. There are some hazy post-blah videos to explore, which surprises me a lot since I posted this video last week. Which made me feel like finally smelling the rap spirit, but I was wrong. Explore with me:
#1 BLACKHOodS – LOW MELT, dir?
Instant classic tune from BLACKHOodS, which is a pretty slow and deep burner. Even the video loop is kinda fitting and entertaining. Their new album will be out soon via Baltimore experimental dark/drone label Attention Attention.
#2 Chrome Canyon – Branches, directed by Chrome Canyon
Chrome Canyon’s new video for ‘Branches’ has some epic footage of clouds and sick beatsss. It’s off their new Elemental Themes album, out on October 9th via Stones Throw.
#3 A$AP Mob – Bath Salt, directed by Shomi Patwary
Ant and Rocky link up with that Flatbush Zombie for the video of their single ‘Bath Salt’ off their Lord$ Never Worry tape.
#4 Otto von Schirach – When Dinosaurs Rule The Earth , directed by Mark Thornton
Otto again, and again: great video and a rad song. Taken from his new Supermeng album, released through Berlin-based imprint Monkeytown Records.
#5 Azure Ray – Scattered Like Leaves, directed by Jonathan Tvrdik
Beautifully light but still so heavy: that’s the new video of Azure Ray for ‘Scattered like Leaves’ from her album As Above So Below.
#6 Holograms – Fever, directed by Pau Suris
Post-punk? Anyway, this video is some flashin trippy goodness!
#7 Samara Lubelski – Jammage Cruiser, directed by Klye Clyd
Our friends over at No Fear Of Pop premiered this Super 8mm music video for a musician I honestly was not familiar with: Samara Lubelski. Thanks for the heads up, Henning.
#8 Metronomy – Hypnose, directed by Daniel Brereton
Here at EB I cannot share my enthusiasm for the crisp UK combo with many of my colleagues. Same story with Justice and Mr. Oizo… anyway, since I very much enjoy listening to their music, here’s a video to promote this album, directed by the one-and-only Daniel Bererton.
#9 Joseph Arthur – Where Is My Van?, directed by Ehud Lazin
Re: teen spirit (and fun): this is the unbeatable Joespeh Arthur, who is searching for his van. Thank God to the Scrubs, the most amazing series with the most amazing soundtrack ever, now there also a music video.
#10 Twin Peaks – Stand in the Sand, directed by Ryan Ohm
Re: re: teen spirit. Pretty wild video for a pretty wild song. Is this what rock’n’roll looks like in 2012?. Into it if so.
MUERAN HUMANOS – Culpable, directed by Txema Novelo
Mueran Humanos (translated: Death To Humanity) are the duo of Carmen Burguess and Tomas Nochteff, two Argentine transplants to Berlin. Check their new video above and get more info on the rising duo through our 10×4.
