Every week, Moritz Gayard rounds up the best new music videos, so you don’t have to.
Following last week’s mainstream-laden Videodrome (Miley anyone? ), this week we are about to continue with a little portion of top of the pops videos (MGMT, Dizzee Rascal, Tegan & Sara) combined with a handful of cutting edge videos by emerging artists such as FKA sticks, Blood Orange, Jef Barbara, Strangefruit. Have fun. Seriously.
#1 Blood Fruit – “Chamakay” , directed by Adam Bainbridge
This week Dev Hynes is certainly mah man. Here’s the next exceptional track with an equally cool movie. And check his fashion. Dev’s just miles ahead.
#2 MGMT – “Cool Song No . 2” , directed by Isaiah Seret
Here is the second video for MGMT‘s self-titled, third album which dropped yesterday through Sony. Pretty dark visual good looks, aided by an appearance with the Wire‘s Omar (Michael K. Williams), which are kind of fitting to the surprisingly catchy tune.
#3 Au Revoir Simone – “Crazy” , focused by Alex Braverman & Poppy de Villeneuve
The sweet girls through Au Revoir Simone are back with a new album, named Move In Spectrums , which is full of beautiful lush pop songs. “Crazy” got a cool video treatment, where some sort of role playing is going on.
#4 FKA twigs – “Papi Pacify” , directed FKA twigs & Ben Beard
After inaugurating the marvelous FKA twigs in Videodrome some weeks ago, above is already the next killer video—this time slightly NSFW.
#5 Dizzee Rascal ft Will. We. Am “Something Really Bad” , directed by Henry Scholfield
Hmm, by no means thought that Will. I. Am can make it into my Videodrome, yet I’m down with Dizzee since I saw him live earlier this year. Also, Dizzee’s excellent video for “I Don’t Need A Reason” makes him worth paying attention to, no matter who their collaborator is. Will I what?
#6 Jef Barbara – “About Singers” , directed by Jef Barbara & Jacqueline Lachance
Premiered over at at all times inspiring NFOP blog, this is the next proof, that Mr. Barbara is all about to change the game—his debut album, Soft to the Touch will see the light later this year through Club Roll Music.
#7 Knxwledge feat Blu – “Nothesame” , directed by Brian O Tuama, Albert Hooi & Mark Gilligan
Dark vid for “Nothesame” taken from the particular L. A. beatmaker’s forthcoming three-track Rap Jointz Vol. 1 EP.
#8 Strangefruit – “GHOSTS” , focused by Antonia Manoochehri
Nice, strobe-laden movie for the debut single from Greater london four-piece Strangefruit. Soon, there’ll become a full album via their very own imprint, Counterfeit Fun Records.
#9 Terranova – Painkiller (Rampa & Lso are. You Mix)
Not long ago we had a pretty dope Terranova mix on our web site. But this is not the only reason why We picked this video, though it just shows some screen machine aesthetics. Digging the track and particularly the Rampa & Re. You rework.
#10 Tegan And Sara – “Goodbye, Goodbye” , directed by Natalie Rae Robison
This is not a ‘lyric’ video. It was shot in Toronto, Canada and is filled which many we need, telephone, computer & amusing. ~
