Im looking for something thatll break through. You know? James Woods Max Renn yearns in David Cronenbergs 1983 cult classic Videodrome. Oh, how things have changed. In todays day and age, weve already drowned in media. Its swallowed us. Were nothing but a bubble amidst one infinite, engulfing abyss. Intimidated? You should be. With each passing second, youre losing opportunities to take advantage of a culture thats moving ahead and at an exhausting rate. You could very well be alone left behind abandoned. Terrified yet? Yes? Well, thats more like it.
The Big Pink Give It Up
When children of the 1990’s start getting old, I imagine this is what their equivalent of an “acid flashback” will look like. The Big Pink manage to deliver something best appreciated by those who spent years in sweaty techno clubs dropping E and experimenting with neon.
For her new video BjÃ¶rk collaborated with a real-life biomedical animator in an attempt to gives us all a refresher of our 8th grade biology class. Maybe we all would have paid more attention back then if BjÃ¶rk had been there.
Brown Shoe Sweet Crazy Baby
Someone forgot to tell the guys from Brown Shoe that singing to ballerinas is already Kanye’s thing. Oh well, at least they can harmonize better than he can.
Emil & Friends Crystal Ball
Congratulations to Emil & Friends for beating out Odd Future this week and having the more bizarre video. Definitely not an easy feat.
Evans the Death Telling Lies
I’m no doctor, but I’m pretty sure that if you get smacked in the mouth and green stuff starts spurting out, you’re in pretty bad shape. Either that or you’re in an Evans the Death music video.
Fast Planet – “Lost”
After getting the crap kicked out of them by a member of a motorcycle gang, most bands would walk away with their tail between their legs. In this video, Fast Planet prove that they’re more persistent than your average band.
Odd Future – “NY (Ned Flander)”
It’s truly amazing that a video staring Tyler, the Creator digitally imposed on a baby’s body still isn’t the weirdest video Odd Future have released this month.
Sharon Van Etten – “Leonard”
Sometimes it’s necessary for the music to speak for itself. This simple video from Sharon Van Etten does just that with its serene shots of city life and kaleidoscope effects. It’s a perfect visual accompaniment for the earthy and relaxing vibe of the track.
The Sidekicks Baby, Baby
The Sidekicks frontman Steve Ciolek plays the role of human billboard in this new video. It goes to show that you don’t have to be passed out drunk to get Sharpie all over yourself.
Spirit Animal – “Crocodile Skins”
In this video, Spirit Animal frontman Steve Coopers looks like the gypsy, indie rock version of the Blair Witch. Instead of getting murdered in a creepy basement, his victims learn to shred some guitar.
