Kaizo Trap Remixed

Kaizo Trap Remixed

YouTuber t.p. took animator Guy Collins‘ amazing Kaizo Trap video, and reworked it with a fresh electronica soundtrack that fits perfectly with the protagonist’s challenging journey into a platform video game world. Even if you’ve seen the original already, it’s worth a rewatch.

Jack White: Corporation

(Flashing Images) The trippy texture-mapped environments of the video for Aphex Twin’s latest track is the perfect accompaniment to the driving, syncopated, electrofunk beats that seem at once both chaotic and meticulously planned. From the upcoming EP Collapse.

Crøm-lus: Strange Jealousy

Crøm-lus: Strange Jealousy

Animator Georgios Cherouvim’s video for Poppy Edwards aka Crøm-lus ethereal track features fantastic imagery, manipulating footage of faces using an algorithm replicating the behavior of slime mold as it forms branch-like structures in search of nutrients.

Chinese Man: Step Back

Chinese Man: Step Back

Directors Fred & Annabelle created of the most slickest music videos we’ve seen in a while. Thousands of nondescript characters face off at a city intersection, while DJ Chinese Man keeps the beat going from the tallest amp stack we’ve ever seen. From the album Shikantaza.

Boston Bun: Spread Love

Boston Bun: Spread Love

(PG-13) A man gets massive amounts of attention heaped upon him when he gets a new and adorable pet with a unique talent in Simon Cahn’s hilariously offbeat music video for DJ Boston Bun’s and DVNO’s catchy dance track about spreading love like a Paddington Bear.

Motorcycle Boy

Motorcycle Boy

(PG-13: Slight nudity) Filmmaker James F. Coton introduces us to three very different members of Japan’s underground motorcycle culture. The clip starts out as a documentary, but transforms into a music video for The Legendary Tigerman in its back half.

Whack World

Whack World

(PG-13: Language) Filmmakers Thibaut Duverneix and Mathieu Léger take us on a wild ride through the disjointed mind of rapper Tierra Whack, playing out as 15 one-minute mini movies, each shot on a different set. The scenes are loaded with style, humor, and attitude.

Gunship: Art3mis & Parzival

(Spoilers) This music video from the band GUNSHIP serves as a wonderful tribute to the characters in Ready Player One, as told through 16-bit pixel art. The band is also giving away a custom arcade cabinet if you can figure out the secrets hidden in the video. (Thanks Lee!)

Muse: Thought Contagion

Muse: Thought Contagion
$1.29  Buy Link Comment

It’s too late for a revolution… Brace for the final solution. The title track off of the upcoming Muse album Thought Contagion feels kind of like a dark sequel to the events of Uprising. The track features a great music video dripping with ’80s style and pop culture references.

Vladimir Cauchemar: Aulos

Vladimir Cauchemar: Aulos

Russian musician Vladimir Cauchemar pops up all over the place to warm the world with the soothing and hypnotic sounds of his recorder. Kudos to director Alice Kunisue for one of the most entertaining and WTF things we’ve watched today.

Orelsan: Basique

Orelsan: Basique

Directors Greg&Lio shot this video for French musician OrelSan, which features a seemingly endless cast of characters for the rapper to march through. The smooth tracking shot was captured using an expertly piloted drone. The subtitled version has a little bonus at the end.

OK Go: Obsession

OK Go: Obsession

The Academic: Bear Claws Live Loop

The Academic: Bear Claws Live Loop

Alternative band The Academic used the slight delay in Facebook Live’s video streaming to record and remix their song Bear Claws on the spot. By showing their stream on a screen while they were streaming, they were able to play along with their past selves.

Read Between the Lines

Read Between the Lines

Paper Forest’s music video for Alaska Pollock’s jangly alt-pop tune follows the story of a boy’s cardboard robot who leaves home and sets off on an adventure around Amsterdam. The animation style and storytelling is as charming and cheerful as it gets. BTS here.

Gorillaz: Sleeping Powder

Gorillaz: Sleeping Powder

This new bonus track from our favorite, ever-mutating cartoon band starts out slow and subdued, then kicks into high gear, as 2-D draws us in with his tale of drug addiction, and won’t let go. We’re only bummed that this track didn’t make it onto Humanz.

Foo Fighters: Run

Foo Fighters: Run
$1.29  Buy Link Comment

Dave Grohl directed the bipolar music video for Foo Fighters’ latest track – a clip which stars the members of the band rocking a retirement home, aged to look how they’ll look if they keep performing for another 30 years or so. We love the Thriller-esque choreography at the end.

Kool Keith x MF Doom: SuperHero
$1.29  Buy Link Comment

(Flashing images) “JVC is nice; I’ve been around Japan; It’s electronic, calls me Viktor; High on the scales, off the Richter.” Director Kris Merc’s dope visual feast is the perfect complement to hip hop legends Kool Keith and MF Doom’s track about a rapper with super powers.

Isaiah’s Dizzying Videos

The White Stripes & Michel Gondry

The White Stripes & Michel Gondry

Film Radar digs into the techniques that director Michel Gondry used to create The White Stripes‘ most classic videos. Gondry’s sense of whimsy and effective use of simple visual effects were the perfect accompaniment to Jack and Meg’s reductive sound. (Thanks Daniel!)

Millington: Being

Millington: Being

(Gross) It’s an age old story of a girl falling in love with her one true soulmate – except in this case, her significant other just happens to be creepy alien creature. Oh Yeah Wow’s video for Millington’s jangly love song starts out silly, and ends like a horror film.

Go Up

Go Up

(PG-13) Cassius, Cat Power, and Pharell Williams collaborated on this awesome dance track which we missed when the album Ibifornia dropped last Summer. Director Alex Courtès‘ literally cheeky music video works wonders with the best use of split-screen ever.

Walk Away

Walk Away

David Ariew, Derrick Borte, and Michael Marquat of A Bad Think collaborated on this haunting music video about an astronaut’s journey through the cosmos. The song reminds us more than a little bit of Pink Floyd, and we mean that as the highest of compliments.

Leningrad: Kolschik

Leningrad: Kolschik

(PG-13: Gore) Since we don’t speak Russian, we don’t understand what the song is about, but the sheer insanity of the events that play out make this one of the wildest music videos we’ve seen. The clip was directed by Ilya Naishuller (Hardcore Henry and The Stampede)
