The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

It’s pretty hard to carry on Stereogum business as usual on the day that Amrit Singh, the guy who brought me to the site and one of my favorite people, announces his departure.

Anika – “In The City” Video

Earlier this year you may have heard journalist-turned-songstress Anika’s cover of Chromatics’ “In The City” for her Geoff Barrow produced EP on Stones Throw. It was a fantastic cover, and now it has been given a truly bizarre music video. Depicting a rather unorthodox wedding ceremony, we watch as suitor after suitor line-up to woo… More »

Anika – “Love Buzz” (Shocking Blue Cover)

Anika – “No One’s There”

Multi-instrumentalist/political journalist/cratedigger Anika DJ’d our 2011 SXSW collaboration with Sacred Bones. In the recap, I mentioned hoping she’d come back and actually play at some point: Her self-titled debut’s a dark dub/no wave/punk-inflected, electro-shrouded collection that plods and fucks with time and iced Nico-isms in compellingly distant, engaged ways. It was produced by Portishead’s Geoff… More »
