Videodrome 68 – This week’s best videos
New week, new videos. Since I was very much affected from last week’s enormous EB Festival in Budapest, there wasn’t much time to explore new A/V stuff; nevertheless I did stumble over a few cool new videos. Which I will now share with you… aren’t you the lucky one?
#1 Cat Power – Cherokee (self-direcetd)
A bit of a disappointing video, but a great song. From her latest LP Sun.
#2 Mutant Beat Dance – Sketch III (L.I.E.S. 014), directed by Oliver Vereker & Juan Bocca
Chicago traxx meets post-VHS aesthetics. I live for this stuff. Check L.I.E.S. Records for more astonishing sounds.
#3 Frank Ocean – Pyramids, directed by Nabil
Like most of the rest of the world, I love Frank Ocean.
#4 Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Your Love, directed by Dawid Krępski
TEED releases yet another music video from his debut album Trouble, this time for my favorite new rave-tastic cut.
#5 AlunaGeorge – Your Drums, Your Love, directed by Henry Scholfield
UK duo AlunaGeorge just released a video for one of the year’s best pop songs. Highly addictive.
#6 Kilo Kish – Navy , directed by Ben Rayner & Kish Robinson
Kish released her first official video for ‘Navy’ off her Homeschool EP.
#7 Maria Minerva – The Sound Direction, directed by James B. Stringer
Distorted beats & wonky vocals. Fans of the immaculate Grimes will love this.
#8 Dylan Ettinger – Blue and Blue, directed by Nathan Vollmar
Not Not Fun Records put out wonderful experimental music with lots of pop hints, and I love them for that. This is the music video for ‘Blue and Blue,’ the closing track on Dylan Ettinger’s Lifetime of Romance.
#9 Lorn – Weigh Me Down, directed by Max Friedrich
Taken from his new album Ask The Dust which is out now on Ninja Tune.
#10 Holy Balm – Losing Control, directed by Ella Barclay
Brand new, appropriately hilarious and playful video from the Sydney outfit’s forthcoming full-length It’s You. Superb analogue synths!
