Videodrome 87 – This week’s best videos
Welcome to the Videodrome, you know the drill by now, right? Here’s a brand new set of videos to keep your bandwidth choked and productivity low, but hey, at least you’ll always be entertained…
#1 Jolie Wanker – Unicorn, dir?
Jolie what? Moving on… This is an amazing track and video by sound enthusiast Jolie Wanker. Actually this track’s not that new as Jolie released it on his Soudcloud over a year ago. Still, age hasn’t diluted its NSFW magic.
#2 Maria Minerva – Black Magick, directed by Alice Cohen
Maria can do no wrong. Here at eb.net we’ve already featured her collaboration with Amanda Brown of LA Vampires and now she’s back on a solo tip, teasing her Bless EP that comes out this April on Not Not Fun.
#3 Tame Impala – Mind Mischief, directed by David Wilson
Tame Impala have teamed up with Urban Outfitters (yes, really) for their latest strike “Mind Mischief”, one of the best tracks from last year’s full-length Lonerism.
#4 Yo La Tengo – I’ll Be Around, directed by Phil Morrison
Yo La Tengo‘s latest album Fade was only released recently but this is the second amazing video to be plucked from it.
#5 Mr. Oizo – Wrong Cops, directed by Quentin Dupieux
Seen Rubber, the last movie by Quentin Dupieux (better known as Mr. Oizo to me and you)? Well, he’s already onto his next one, Wrong Cops. And sorry for posting a film trailer—I couldn’t resist.
#6 Beyonce – Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show
What to say?
#7 Hurts – Miracle
Look at their hair! Look at the female dancers! Look at their top buttons! Look at the emoting… Yes, it’s the new, very expensive-looking and no doubt costing video for Hurts‘ boxfresh single from second album Exile.
#8 Woodkid – I Love You, directed by Yoann Lemoine
Did you see Michael Haneke‘s acclaimed 2009 film The White Ribbon?. This clip sees Yoann Lemoine serving us a Haneke-inspired accompaniment for his new single “I Love You”.
#9 Animal Collective – Applesauce, directed by Gaspar Noé
Do you want to see a close-up of a woman eating a peach for five minutes, illuminated by one-and-only director Gaspar Noé? Well aren’t you lucky?
#10 Rhye – Open, directed by Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen
Los Angeles-based duo Rhye (that’s Mike Milosh and Robin Hannibal, by the way) have just dropped their second video treatment for their ace track “Open”. Meanwhile we’re still currently awaiting their debut album due this spring, entitled Woman.
