For some reason this week saw the release of a number of fantastic music videos. So much so that we simply couldn’t squeeze them all into this post. When Kavinsky rolls up in his signature Testarossa, saving damsels in distress, and still isn’t on the guestlist, you know it’s been a big week.
MGMT – Your Life Is A Lie (Dir. Tom Kuntz)
Perhaps even more psychedelic than the music itself, Tom Kuntz directs the wackiest video of the year featuring crying rocks, egg pyramids and much more.
ScHoolboy Q – Collard Greens Feat. Kendrick Lamar (Dir. Jerome D)
Yes this video may be tacky as hell. Yes the party room with Cristal poppin’ and booty boppin’ has been done hundreds of times before but Q and K-Dot (and that damn Macklemore) are having way too much fun to care. Another banger from TDE.
Rhye – 3 Days (Edited by Biz 3 & Maggie Stoody)
Who’d have known that Robin Hannibal and Mike Milosh’ Rhye was to be best enjoyed as a burlesque soundtrack?
MINKS – Margot (Dir. Sonny Kilfoyle)
There’s something about making videos that most lo-fi, New Wavers just seem to get. Check out Sonny Kilfoyle’s directorial debut above and watch as this simple story unfurls.
King Krule – Easy Easy (Dir. Focus Creeps)
Eighteen-year-old Archie Marshal is the man behind the abrasive and unstoppable King Krule. With a raspiness rivaling Tom Waits and an unquestionable teenage angst, if anyone’s going to unwittingly start a youth revolt it’s this guy. Grab Archie’s debut album 6 Feet Beneath the Moon set to be released on his 19th birthday, Saturday, August 24 via True Panther Sounds and XL Recordings.
