Its been a pretty good April in the world of music videos, so I thought I’d put together a list of some of my favorites from the past month. I miss any?
Manchester Orchestra – Simple Math
Legendary directing duo, DANIELS, put together this impressive video for Manchester Orchestra’s ‘Simple Math’. If your gonna check out one this video this year, it’d be a good pick to make it this one. These dudes are definitely making a name for themselves.
The Decemberists – This Is Why We Fight
The video follows a group of teens dressed in raggedy clothes, revolting against their powerful leader, with the video ending at the peak of emotion.
Franz Ferdinand – Ulysses (Recovered Video)
Apparently this was just recovered from an old basement on an old digi beta tape, which was obviously rejected by the band or label. Directed by the talented, Kris Moyes.
TV On The Radio – Nine Types of Light TV on The Radio’s 60 minute film for every track on their latest album, Nine Types of Light, with a different director taking control of each track.
Hooray For Earth – True Loves
Dropped just a couple days ago, Hooray for Truth put together a great visual for ‘True Loves’.
Death Cab for Cutie – You Are A Tourist (Live Stream)
Death Cab dropped a nice alternative to the regular video release, by streaming ‘You Are A Tourist’ live to all viewers.
Autoerotique – Turn Up The Volume
Autoerotique get rowdy with an intense food/paint fight.
Son of Kick – Playing theVillain
The Glue Society put this together with Son of Kick. The video features some young trouble makers trying to steal a car, but things seem to go a bit sour.
Beastie Boys – Fight For Your Right – Revisited
Unfortunately, the impressive cast list might have been the best thing about this video. The hype up to it was intense, but the final product was a bit of a let down by having such high expectations. Nonetheless, Adam Yauch still delivered an entertaining 30 minute video for the
Beastie Boys return to the stage. Leave a comment
