Thu, 13 Oct 2016 16:03:13
Just the list of music videos that came out this week is staggering. Some of the biggest artist around dropped new videos, including a few of the NSFW variety. In that previously mentioned realm, Liv, the supergroup featuring Lykke Li, Jeff Bhasker, Miike Snow members Andrew Wyatt and Pontus Winnberg, and Björn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John, unveiled "Wings of Love". In other not NSFW music video news, DNCE dropped the sexually charged "Elevator Sex".
ANHONI debuted another facial study video, this time for "I Don't Love You Anymore". Kid Cudi may be in rehab, but that didn't stop the release of the video for "Frequency". Weezer grabbed Patton Oswalt for their "I Love The USA" video. In other national commentary, Death Cab for Cutie released the video for their anti-Trump track "Million Dollar Loan". And that was only the beginning for a week filled with stunning eye candy.
Here are our favorites:
Kaskade plus Deadmau5 plus Skylar Gray is a tough trio to beat when it comes to EDM. The accompanying music video is as stunning as the collaboration, and features Ms. Grey emerging from a car crash.
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - "Girl in Amber"
Skeleton Tree is one of our favorite albums of the year so far. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' video for "Girl in Amber" is simple, black and white, and shows the band just performing the material. Nonetheless, it is heart wrenching.
Danny Brown - "Pneumonia" - Directed by Simon Cahn
Hoisted into the air by metal chains, Danny Brown becomes a human puppet in his video for "Pneumonia". It may be a bit disturbing, but just like everything else from Brown, it's worth paying attention to.
Mitski - "A Burning Hill"
The video for "A Burning Hill", the last video from Mitski's newest album Puberty 2, was shot during "a weekend just driving around New York and Pennsylvania," she said in a press release, adding, "It felt like a vacation, but it was also quite emotional, as I was thinking about the song and what it means to me now while jumping in rivers and driving down dirt lanes."
Amber Coffman - "All to Myself" - Directed by Amber Coffman
Amber Coffman is still a member of the Dirty Projectors, but that hasn't stopped her from working on solo material. This week she announced her debut solo album, City of No Reply, and released the self-directed music video for her first single "All to Myself. If you enjoyed her as part of Dirty Projectors, you should certainly enjoy the new material.
