BEST MUSIC VIDEOS - WEEK 27 2014
How the f**k has there been 26 weeks of 2014 already? I mean, where’s my flying car at, bro? OK, OK, I know Apple is probably sorting that sh*t out, but what we do have to show for 2014 already is some pretty sweet music, you gotta admit?! And the festivals! Who else wishes they were sitting in a pile of mud right now, wasted out of your mind, listening to Jack White or some other freak do their thing onstage? Well, you’re not. You’re here and here we have something even better. It’s time for the Best Videos of the week and you know this stuff is way better than listening to some old mid-thirties dude sing songs that came out ten years ago. THIS SH*T IS FRESH, Y’ALL!
CLIPPING. – BODY & BLOOD
There’s no way of denying it: red is the sexiest color in the world. Also, the naked people are pretty sexy too. It’s an unbeatable combination! Sub Pop Records did good with this one, and if you don’t know anything about clipping., here’s the skinny: they’re an LA trio and they make videos like this. Now get addicted! It’s too hard not to. If you’ve seen a more intense video than this in the last 26 weeks, then you’re lying to yourself.
OK GO – THE WRITING’S ON THE WALL
Yup, you guessed it! OK GO is back with another single-take music video and you know what? It’s getting kind of boring. SYKE! For a band of normal looking dudes, they have the best choreography skills I’ve ever seen. Like straight up synchronized swimming, BUT ON LAND! If you’re not a fan of optical illusions, then this music video will definitely give you a head up. But watch it anyway. YOLO!
KING AVRIEL – CARICATURES
This is Avriel Epps. She’s a twenty-three year old songwriter and she’s a cutie, ain’t she?! But enough about her, let’s talk about her body. It’s my favorite part of this whole video. And what’s my second favourite part of this video, you may ask? That ending is 100% on-point perfect and I don’t think I’d like this video as much with a different ending. Amen to the unexpected!
LONDON FUTURE & DJEMBA DJEMBA – LOOK AT ME NOW (FT. IFA SAYO)
When has Mad Decent ever disappointed you freaky mother**kers, huh?! I must say, this video does make me want to dance to electro music though, and that never happens. I guess Diplo and his team know what’s cracking after all. Aliens are cool. Deal with it!
FKA TWIGS – TWO WEEKS
Why isn’t this girl that new Queen of Pop yet? I mean, seriously guys. Stop prolonging it with this Rihanna and Katy Perry crap and make this sh*t the new mainstream. After that “Water Me” video I was hooked and this new one is pretty captivating too. FKA twigs new album, LP1, is up for pre-order. Go get it and become an instant cool kid. Or just share this Bitcandy post. That will work too. Those lyrics! You’re killing me. I’m so in love with music right now.
OFWGKTA – AUNT WANG SYRUP COMMERCIAL
Yeah, totally. Eating syrup that came out of a pubescent boy’s face is delicious and totally something I’d want to do. I still can’t figure out why we put up with these crazy idiots. Nothing they do makes any sense. Oh right, that’s probably it. Come to think of it, when you’re high you’ll eat anything. And those waffles did look tasty!
IBEYI - OYA
I’m not exactly sure how to take you “oya” but I sure will try. This video is pretty creepy to say the least. I definitely felt like something would jump out of the darkness and eat my soul. Apparently this song was featured in some Louis Vuitton ad. I could see that. It would also be really good as a video game soundtrack. I like really good music with my really creepy video games.
HALF MOON RUN – NO MORE LOSING THE WAR
If a band like this doesn’t make an impact on you, this video will. I get a total Jeff Buckley this from it all. The sound of his voice, the broken-heartedness, the pigeons, the cold. It’s all very mysteriously sad. I want to listen to music like this all day and be sad just for the beauty in it. Half Moon Run, I will never forget you, or this video. Goodnight. I love you.
HUNDRED WATERS – OUT ALEE (ARCOSANTI CUT)
This live/ music video is sooooooo cool. Pretty fitting for a band straight out of LA, doing something different that’s really enjoyable and even more creative. Most people that listen to this group for the first time, fall in love immediately. Not regrets. So how you doing? Feeling the love yet? Let’s have an orgy? I think it’s just about the right time for one.
THIS 80S STYLE GAME OF THRONES INTRO IS SUPERB
This 80s Game of Thrones intro is cool and all, but if it was made in the 80s, they would have had to change the intro every episode as half those fools die off by the end of the each season. Still, it looks like a pretty cool show. If you’re into that kind of sh*t. I’m happy with the current intro because you can make an entire meal from the time the show starts to the time the show actually starts. Get my drift? (Game of Thrones has a long intro.)
STEVE BUG – TILL IT’S GONE (FT. DELHIA DEFRANCE)
This video reminds me of playing computer games in the 90s. There wasn’t a lot to it, but it was mesmerizing. It’s like a virtual mousetrap but nothing is actually connecting and in reality it’s all just a bunch of codes inside of a machine that you have permanently attached to your hands at all times. Oh god, I’m starting to have a 2014 freak out again. Somebody save me! Take me back to the times when things were simpler and I knew nothing about anything.
Grab a towel, kid. It’s over! Those of the absolute coolest, most impressive new videos on the block and by the block, I mean the internet. Now go and tell all your friends about the fresh new sh*t you just heard and don’t forget to mention all the naked people in that clipping. video. You know they’ll love that! Until next week, peace out. Or peace in. I never know which one I really mean.
About Bianca Fernandes
Bianca Fernandes has an unfounded love for Taylor Swift and an unexplainable, burning hatred for Bob Dylan. In her opinion, that's the perfect combination to be a music reviewer. And she doesn't give an F about what you have to say about it. She writes for one person, and that's herself. Think grumpy cat with a weakness for music and watching Miley Cyrus twerk. But she does other things simply for cash, like social media, web content creation and some crazy blogging when necessary.
