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 »

I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles (In -45 Degree Weather)

This is less for the bubbles, more for the fun banter. I love Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan as much as the next casual viewer of Live! With Kelly and Michael (who loves them very much), but is it too late to get these guys in there? They can bring the bubbles, I don't care. 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 »

This Is Just A Very Good City Council Commercial

I'm not sure why you'dd need a commercial for the city council since it seems like a city council is the kind of thing that's required in most cities regardless of whether or not people are "buying" it, but if you do make a commercial for the city council you could do worse than the… 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 »

Jeep Vs. Pool

The scariest thing to me about horror stories like last month's discovery of Amanda Berry and two other women in the home of Ariel Castro (who plead not guilty today by the way) is that the surprising and lucky confluence of events that brings those stories to light suggests there are many, many other… More »

The Perfect Crime: Mouthful Of Ice Cream Bandit

Of course, OF COURSE, some police in Canada are seeking a man for stealing a single mouthful of ice cream. Like no duh that is one of the main issues going on in that country right now. I'm not making fun. Props to Canada. You guys are living teh dream. But also hahaha. Canadian criminals,… 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 Perfect Crime: The Barbecue Chip Bandit Gang

It must be hard when you're a high-caliber criminal working at the top of his/her field to scan the headlines and see lesser crooks getting attention. This one stole a tricycle from an autistic child. This one streaked the Olympic torch. Amateurs! You call those crimes? Fine. But then what were those eight… More »

The Porno Switcheroo Archives: Gay Porn During Morning News

Before we talk about this morning's Porno Switcheroo it seems worth reminding people that Porno Switcheroos are always equally hilarious regardless of whether the porno is being switcherooed with a Disney movie or that channel that live broadcasts surgical procedures. This goes the same for whether the porno is intended for heterosexual people or homosexual… More »

What Is The Scary Noise Happening In Canada??????

So, uh, there is a very scary noise "happening" right now. Outside. Of your house maybe? (Or NOT happening, if I can be honest for a moment, because give me a break with this nonsense, but also if I can be honest for another moment I just watched the videos and then was VERY afraid… More »

Why Did We Ever Stop Campaigning Against The Ninja Turtles?

There is currently a very low-budget documentary on Netflix Instant titled Alive! Is Michael Jackson Really Dead?, and -- as you can tell from the title -- is is incredible. A conspiracy theory documentary that you put on because you think, "Haha, oh this is crazy, this is going to be fun." And the… More »

An Open Letter To The University Of Montreal Students Who Wore Black Face

Dear University of Montreal Students Who Wore Black Face, No. Nope. No way, guys. While you're cleaning the shoe polish off of your fucking faces, I will explain the situation to those who don't know what happened: some white students from the University of Montreal Business School attended a "Olympics-themed sports and physical activity awarene… More »

Preview of CN Tower’s “EdgeWalk” Might Give You Vertigo

Here is Mark Laroche, President and CEO of Canada Lands Company ("Duh, we know."), getting a tour of EdgeWalk, which is a thing that will open in August on the CN Tower in Canada and hooooooly moly. Is anyone else on the floor? One second I was at my computer watching a video and 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 »

An Open Letter To Vancouver

Dear Vancouver, Apparently something happened in your sports yesterday? Hard to tell. I'm not a big sports-head, but even down here in my nerd-hole, I've sensed the rumblings from above. Oh no! Something something sports! I am so sorry. All of our thoughts and prayers are with Canadian sports during this difficult time. But… More »
