The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Run The Jewels and Arca and Belle & Sebastian and a generous handful of other artists made really good videos this week, and I couldn't find room for any of them. There were too many good videos this week. This is one of those weeks where everything in the top 5 i… More »

She & Him – “Stay Awhile” Video

She & Him will release their Classics covers album in a few weeks, and they've just shared a video for their take on Dusty Springfield's "Stay Awhile." M. Ward does a pretty impressive job pantomiming guitar playing, and Zooey Deschanel dances around with a ghost and gets carried off into the clouds. The whole… More »

Delorean – “Destitute Time” Video

"Destitute Time" is the airy, fluttering new single from the breezy Barcelona dance-rock band Delorean, with Glasser on the backing vocals. The song's new CANADA-directed video flips back and forth between band-performance footage and cartoonish images of a couple going through what looks like a very complicated relationship. Check it out below. More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

You guys are going to hate this week's list so much, but it's high summer now, and I just can't be bothered to list whatever piece of dark experimental conceptual indie rock silliness that someone might be into. This is a time for bright, shiny, professional high-grade pop music videos, videos about love and dancing… More »

Phoenix – “Trying To Be Cool” Video

"Trying To Be Cool" is the second single from Phoenix's new album Bankrupt! (following "Entertainment"), and its new video, helmed by the directing team CANADA and produced by the Creators Project, is a total goofball triumph. It starts out as a fairly normal live-in-studio club, but then things keep happening: A baboo… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

The real best music video of this week isn't on this list, since it wasn't actually a music video at all. But Frank Ocean's performance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon was drop-dead gorgeous. It won't leave my head anytime soon, and I don't especially want it to. But there were also plenty of… More »

Justice – “New Lands” Video

We first heard the smoothened AC/DC bath of "New Lands" from last year's Audio, Video, Disco in October, and Justice has stretched the track's release cycle ever since: They dropped A-Trak and Falcon remixes this summer, and today there's a Canada-directed official video. The clip features a latter-day-Pacino type as the… More »

The Best Videos Of 2011 (So Far)

Today's my last day at Stereogum, so instead of the best videos of this week, I'm posting the best videos of the year so far. They line up pretty closely with my favorite videos of the year, but hey, it's my last day. I get to pick my favorites. I included videos from my two… More »

The 8 Best Videos Of The Week

This week we've got new videos from Hooray For Earth, Broken Social Scene, Tyler, The Creator, and White Lies. I included the Calling All Cars and Border Surrender videos because they both featured long slow-motion foot chases but the latter video also has a surprise at the end of its long, single shot. You'll also… More »

The 6 Best Videos Of The Week

Happy Friday. This week we've got recent videos from The Vaccines, Chad VanGaalen, Bikini, and Swedish House Mafia. It was another slow week for new videos, so I included a couple of clips that came out in previous weeks, like VanGaalen's awesome natives and aliens clip, animated by VanGaalen himself (he also drew his ow… More »

The 6 Best Videos Of The Week

This week we've got new videos from Battles, Cults, Holy Ghost!, and Cloud Nothings. It's kind of a slow week for videos, but I think the Battles clip, created by CANADA directing team, makes up for it. Now would probably be a good time to mention that PS 1 in New York has a More »

Battles – “Ice Cream” Video

"Ice Cream," Gloss Drop's poppiest, most immediate summertime moment, now has a video that opens with a girl licking a swirled cone in the bathtub. That's only the beginning: Women also lick pine cones, roller skates, lamps, flowers, a doorknob. (And a dog licks a banana.) It was directed by CANADA, apparently a… More »

The 12 Most NSFW Videos Of 2010

A couple of Best Videos Of The Week ago I mentioned how nearly every good clip that week was too long, too nude, or too violent to make it on to MTV; one was even removed from YouTube, verification wall or not. But looking back on 2009's picks, it's easy to notice that thi… More »

The 8 Best Videos Of The Week

This week we've got new videos from Scissor Sisters, Adele, Broken Social Scene, Suckers, and Fujiya & Miyagi. One thing I noticed about this week's top five videos -- they were all directed by foreign directors. I'm not sure why that is. There are also less videos since things are slowing down for the holidays. More »
