There we are, the first week of 2013 is over. Here’s what happened in the world of music videos while you were too busy recovering from New Year’s Eve to even notice.
#1 Voigt & Voigt – Erdingertrax 3.4 , dir?
This year cologne-based techno imprint Kompakt turns 20. And it looks like it’ll be a year with some stellar releases. Such as the release of the Brothers Voigt, entitled Die schöne Welt der Anderen. Their first single gets an accurate video treatment.
#2 Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – We No Who U R, directed by Gaspar Noe
First single from their forthcoming album Push The Sky Away now has a Gaspar Noe-made video. And it’s not shocking. Much more like… well follow a shadow through the woods… You’ll find out. Anti-entertainment at its best.
#3 RiFF RAFF – NOW THEY MAD, directed by WhoisHiDef
Mad Decent in 2013. Bizarre? Different? Entertaining? You name it, huh.
#4 The Barking Dogs – Ebony, dir?
Milano-based Nicola Mazzetti and Christian Croce are The Barking Dogs. They have a new 12″ out on Gomma and a lovely self-made video that comes along with it, too.
#5 Pet Shop Boys – Go West, Live 2013
Epic, as one might say. Neil Tennant would never say that, mind.
# Toro Y Moi – Say That, directed by The Harrys
This is the second single off Toro Y Moi’s upcoming album Anything In Return called “Say That”. If you’re a sucker for 70s beats and house grooves then play it loud.
#7 Death Grips – COME UP AND GET ME, dir?
Here’s Death Grips’ new video for their track “Come Up And Get Me”. Best thing: the video starts with nine minutes of silence, Music starts nine minutes in. Then there’s some NSFW, take care.
#8 Ryan Hemsworth – Colour & Movement, directed by Yoni Lappin
Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth just dropped his video for the instrumental track “Colour & Movement” with a mesmerising video which fits to the slowed downed beats. Looking for more, Ryan.
#9 Travis Porter – Wobble, dir?
News from Travis Porter! The American rapper just released this video for “Wobble”.
#10 Aleph – Messa (A-Moll) Official Video, Director Chichirik
Futureclassic‘s Aleph premiered a nicely animated video for “Messa” over at XLR8R, pretty dope animation skills—and what a great tune.
#11 Barker & Baumecker – Schlang Bang
Best german techno, track’s taken from last year’s Transsektoral LP for Ostgut Ton.
