The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I don’t think you can call it the best anything, but the most important music-related moving images this week were the flood of cell-phone videos from outside Hot 97 Summer Jam, where police responded to a fight by closing the show’s doors and then firing tear gas into the crowd.

The video for “Stonemilker,” the monumental opening track from Björk’s harrowing breakup opus Vulnicura, is a 360-degree virtual reality video by Andrew Thomas Huang.

Björk’s “Stonemilker” Virtual Reality Experience Begins Sunday In NYC & London

Björk is one of the few artists working whose music videos are almost always worth a watch — at the very least, they’re reliably strange and usually contain some pretty striking imagery. Now, in support of Vulnicura’s upcoming physical release, Björk is premiering a new video for the jaw-droppingly gorgeous album opener “Stonemilker.” But make… More »

MoMA Details Björk Retrospective Featuring New Immersive Music Film Black Lake

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

For a while, I’ve been threatening to start including things in this space that don’t quite constitute “music videos” but which do constitute music on video — late-night performances, great camera-phone moments, things like that.

Björk – “Mutual Core” Video

Björk will soon release her new album bastards, a collection of remixes of songs from her 2011 studio LP Biophilia. And now she’s also given us a video for the Biophilia track “Mutual Core,” which builds from shamanistic swirl to IDM insanity.
