Chockful of Music Videos (Well, their links anyway)


I don’t often watch music videos as a habit; they’ve just never particularly interested me. Occasionally, however I’ll run across something that grabs my interest, or I’ll see a video to a song that entirely changes my thoughts when I listen to that song. Anyway, I’ve been searching around for the past few days looking for good, or at least weirdly interesting, music videos and here’s what I’ve come across:

  • Massive Attack’s Damon Albarn collaboration that itself is more of a short film on music as torture. More interesting as a short documentary than a music video.
  • Devendra Banhart’s tripped out music video for “Baby” that looks like something on late-night Adult Swim.
  • (Sorry Devendra, but Yeasayer’s trippier than you.)
  • This fan-made video for Grizzly Bear’s “Two Weeks” beats out the actual, professionally made video.
  • Noah and the Whale’s “Blue Skies” is simple, straightforward, and a little cliche. But it still makes an impact, in a way.
  • jj’s “Let Go” makes me wonder why film makers don’t use black and white more often.  There’s something to be said for a series of simply beautiful shots.
  • Speaking of a series of beautiful shots, why not add Sigur Ros and “Saegolpur” to the list?
  • Mostly because I just want to wake up like this one day, and because I want to do a little more to plug Surfer Blood. Also, it’s hilarious.
  • I’m just including this because it reeks of ludicrous, low-budget manliness.
  • And finally, a classic done by everyone you could possibly think of.

You know what, I’m going to put that last one right up here directly, because it really is awesome.
