Top Music Videos Of The Week- March 26 - April 1
Fri, 01 Apr 2016 16:30:37
Music videos came from every corner of the music map this week. Topography aside, the last seven days have been filled with eye and ear candy, and no matter what you're into, there was something to enjoy. Andrew Bird falls from his bed, straight onto the stage - pajamas and all - with his new video for "Capsized." Free Cake For Every Creature walked around the city eating cupcakes in their video for "Talking Quietly Of Anything With You," which is clearly an awesome way to spend your time. Andy Scott's "Butterflies" featured some of the best dancing we've seen in awhile - or at least since that last Rostam video.
Rihanna put out her video for "Kiss It Better," and she hasn't looked better. Digitalism's video for "Utopia" is full of prismed light, cities, nature, and stars - frankly, it's a sight to behold. Fear of Men's "Island" video gets all spiritual and is full of smoke and candles. And that was only the beginning for a week full of entrancing music videos.
Here are our favorites:
Gold Panda - "In My Car" - Directed by Rob Brandon
Gold Panda pulls right on the heartstrings with his video for "In My Car." It's just him hanging out with his grandma, and there's something real about that interaction. No need for flash and huge budgets, just an honest, everyday experience with family.
Jeff Buckley - "Just Like A Woman" (Bob Dylan Cover" - Directed by Interlude
Interactive videos are all the rage these days, which may make you hesitate before watching the video for Jeff Buckley's cover of "Just Like A Woman." However, the interactions available during the video allow viewers to make the experience whatever they want, sad, happy, in-love, or just alone, it's all up to you.
Puff Daddy & The Family - "You Could Be My Lover" [ft. Ty Dolla $ign, Gizzle]
Puff Daddy & The Family clearly live the life. Pools, personal basketball courts, beautiful women everywhere, they live in a rap video, which is what "You Could Be My Lover" is all about. All 'n all, there's nothing wrong with that from what we can see.
Ariana Grande - "Dangerous Woman" - Directed by The Young Astronauts
Ariana Grande is a very attractive woman. Put her in lingerie and let her dance and roll around, and good things will happen. Sometimes it's just that simple.
Future - "Low Life" [ft. The Weeknd] - Directed by Zac Facts
The Zac Facts-directed video features Future and The Weeknd in an abandoned warehouse somewhere off a relatively deserted highway. As expected, there are plenty of attractive women to be found throughout, but their beauty contrasted against the desolate homes of the seemingly abandoned town they inhabit is a jarring juxtaposition.
