Best New Videos

Sparkle suits, desk invasions, that one time Miley Cyrus swung naked, crotch first on a wrecking ball, twerking's patron saint and more, rolling into another week of the internet's next viral, Best Indie Video hopefuls, curated by your friendly BitCandy munching staff, empty calorie and soulless since 1983.

Little Boots - 'Satellite'

You're nobody until you own a sparkle suit and get your groove on in an empty cathedral, with a personal organ player.

 

Big Freedia - 'Duffy'

Yeah, twerkin' is still ridiculous. And Big Freedia is pretty much the 'Sam-I-Am' of it all, declaring its entertainment upon rocks, dumpsters, streets - Big-He-Is-Freedia will twerk anywhere, anyplace.

 

Hunx & His Punx - 'Street Punk Trilogy'

Ah, misdirected hostility and grotesque shots of gender-bending punx popping zits. Enjoy, 'Masterbates Theatre', Johnny Teenager.

 

Mother Falcon - 'NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert'

Proving once again, the orchestral cool factor of a band of classical youth grabbing rock by the short and curlies, Austin's Mother Falcon invade Bob Boilen's desk. Dude with the accordion - squeeze in.

 

Miley Cyrus - 'Wrecking Ball'

Well, at least she tamed her unpredictable tongue in her All-American transformation from Disney puppet to sex symbol. Perhaps because she has something to lick in this case.

The Notorious B.I.G. - 'Mo Money Mo Problems'

Mo money still seems like it is absent of problems, despite whatever Puffy, his jumpsuit crew and the ghost of Biggie have to say.

 

The Weeknd - 'Live For feat. Drake'

Drake and The Weeknd live for abandoned warehouses and dramatic lighting.

 

Laura Welsh - 'Cold Front'

The shadow demons from Ghost are back, ditching nightmare hells for choreographed dance geniusry.

Julia Holter - 'This is a True Heart'

A spin-off of the 'Matrix' directed by a Wes Anderson in a world where red lipstick and data mean everything.

 

Steel Panther - 'The British Invasion'

Brixton, clearly, you were ready to fucking rock 'n' roll. God bless you, torch bearers of redux, bloated hair metal.

Back to those shadow puppets - for real, Team Welsh, how many meticulous hours did it get to defy the laws of physics with shadow? And please say you're making a sequel?
