Best New Videos

Analogue media continues to hold the key to the best music videos, five-minutes of David Byrne's eyes, the best conception of the dawning of the internets ever as envisioned by an 80s action-figure informercial and oh so much more as the year's best BitCandy bounty of music vids freaks out into week 28, complete with furry suit dance parties.

 

MS MR - 'Think of You'

It's like a Trapper Keeper dedicated to MTV's inaugural year, and this boy is a 3D god.

David Byrne & Jherek Bischoff - 'Eyes'

And here we thought near 5-minutes of David Byrne's eyes would get tired. Not true, guys. Not true.

 

The Bloody Beetroots feat. Paul McCartney and Youth - 'Out of Sight'

Dubstep spiderman to Macca: 'The wretched crossover hour is upon us. Let us destroy all that is holy about your legacy'.

Mumford & Sons - 'Babel'

Do you think these wily Mumfords keep running in circles to stay in fluid pan with this weepy folk adventure?

Neosignal - 'Planet Online'

Stories of the dawning of the intranets never get old. And this, this will warm an 80s child's heart something proud. Look at that Facebook parking garage! Dudes are genius.

 

Mother Falcon - ' To Mama'

'Mama, watch me dominate a string section. Those cello lessons were worth every dime. With love, team Falcon.'

 

Maps - 'A.M.A.'

Anarchists Marrying Anarchists? Americans Malnourished Always? Apparitions Malarkey Architecture? The cryptics of this video are largely impenetrable.

 

Yo La Tengo - 'Ohm'

There's simply too much awesome "Yellow Submarine" action going on here to focus, but whoa, whoa, whoa - there are equations for explaining the properties of bands?

 

Destructo - 'Higher'

So is "the fix" drugs or sex? Or both? And double OMG, we didn't know hearts of glass really existed.

 

Boards of Canada - 'Reach for the Dead'

So go the sounds of a Western America in saturated slide film trance. Where Boards of Canada take you, you won't need water.

 

Postino - 'I Love It'

Kind of puts Icona Pop to shame, yeah? Especially if you dig toy-instrument air jams and furry suits. Which you know you do, don't lie

 

Pixie Carnation - 'Keep it Coming'

Iggy Pop's black sheep brother will talk to you about 'Fight Club' while dressed in drag. 

 

The Flaming Lips - 'Turning Violent'

Hypnotic freak outs from the Lips? Get out! Best question: What's the point of this pixie dust ritual?

 

Coco Morier - 'Hallucination'

This man's life in reverse is pretty much the most interesting life ever. Nick Ebeling as the new Michel Gondry?

 

The Paper Kites - 'St. Clarity'

Give a homeless dude a hobby - watch the magic unfurl.

 

The Paper Kites - 'A Maker of My Time'

Yeah brother, get down with the street dance! You could take that shit Prancersise large.

 

Bernhoft - 'C'mon Talk'

Keeping the BERT schtick classy, Bernhoft - one-man-band slysville.

Still can't shake that Facebook parking garage get-up. Where are the furry suit kids when you need 'em to "love" things? Never stop loving, kids. Until next week's top indie music videos summary.
