Videos! Wale – "My Sweetie" + "Pretty Girls"

Wale – My Sweetie (directed by tabi Bonney) from tabi Bonney on Vimeo.

I’m so glad this song got a video. This is absolutely one of my favorite Wale songs. I remember my first listen – that bass line fish hooked my lip and pulled me towards the sun. It’s got such a feel-good influence and I believe Wale sounds best over these live, energetic beats.

Saw it at The Maguire

Also, I guess I should post the “Pretty Girls” video too.

Video! Spoon – "Written In Reverse"

Here’s the music video for Spoon’s “Written In Reverse” off Transference. Very basic concept here: get band together, play song, shoot in black and white. Shrug.

Video! Massive Attack – "Splitting the Atom"

Massive Attack-Splitting the Atom-directed by Edouard Salier from edouard salier on Vimeo.

Massive Attack wins again. This video for “Splitting the Atom” starts a little slow, but by the 1:30 mark things quickly turn colossal. Heligoland comes out 2/08.

Video! Make The Girl Dance – "Kill Me"

Excessive swearing, boobs, punting babies, smashing guitars, snorting lines, playing piano naked, helicopter rides, jumping out of planes, and shooting guns. This is a great video.

It’s the new music video from electronica act Make The Girl Dance for their song “Kill Me.” What would you do if you only had 8 days to live? Here’s what Make The Girl Dance would do.

Video! Local Natives – "Airplanes"


Airplanes

Local Natives | MySpace Music Videos

Here’s the video for Local Natives’ “Airplanes”. Local Natives have gone from a beep on my radar to a beep-beep-beep. I haven’t followed them too closely in the past, but lately I’ve really liked what I’ve heard (and seen in this cool video) and I’m going to pay attention from now.

Music Video! Muse – "The Resistance"

Here’s the latest video from Muse. The video concept is pretty straight-forward: Capture the live Muse experience. It may be simple if you’re a garage band from Blanche, Idaho, but Muse’s live shows are famously massive in scope, sound, and feeling. Which is what you’d expect from a band whose sound can best be described as an epic end-of-the-world reaction.

By the way, I only speak about the Muse concert experience from what I’ve heard and what I’ve read. I’ll let you know if it lives up to my expectations in March.

Video! Theophilus London – "Humdrum Town"

Here’s the video for Theophilus’ “Humdrum Town”. If you don’t remember my posts about this, then you don’t know how much I love it, so I’ll tell you again – I love this song. Ok, gotta go catch a flight now. Peace, Florida.
