I’m not going to be insulting anyone’s intelligence and pretend like I actually know what is going on in Shahmaran, the spellbinding short film from Emmanuel Adjei and Sevdaliza. That hasn’t stopped me from watching it on loop for the past hour.

Half Alive came on to the scene late last year with three very well received tracks. They return this month with what sounds to be the most upbeat and dance worthy track in their repertoire. Still Feel will make you feel human again, if not by the lyrics, then the video will be sure to do the trick.
Low Cut High Tops raised a lot of eyebrows with the filthy, obsessive, emotive video for Red Lipstick. He's likely to arch a few more with Typical, but for different reasons. Some will be confused, others delighted. Most will be rolling on the floor while uncontrollably nodding their heads to the beat.
This is the saddest, most stressful music video since the one for Sarah McLachlan’s Angel. Fortunately for us TOKiMONSTA’s music bangs a lot harder. Underneath the beat of I Wish I Could is the kind of pop hook with crossover appeal that everybody wants a piece of.
If you’re not particularly vibing with our Indie Christmas posts because they’re all a little too cheery… Well, boy oh boy oh boy do we have the video for you. MXMS’ darkly gothic dubstep influenced rendition of Carol of the Bells is one to wrap and put under the tree and treasure for infinity.
Fever Ray’s Plunge is a sonically wild album that’s already a November 2017 essential. All things considered, Mustn’t Hurry is one of the tamer tracks. Heavy electronic elements abound, and Karin’s hypnotic way of vocalizing makes the song a solid one. But the shining aspect of all this is the video.
Happy November! We Are: The Guard’s got a juicy new video premiere out for all you kooky kids. This week’s release comes from our friends, Overcoats, who’ve already released an album this year and are just spoiling us rotten at this point. Watch the premiere for I Don’t Believe in Us down below.
