All We Are – “Keep Me Alive” & “I Wear You” Videos

Liverpool trio All We Are just released the video for “Keep Me Alive,” one of many fine tracks on their upcoming self-titled debut album. Like “I Wear You” before it, “Keep Me Alive” is an airy, effervescent, soulful take on indie rock — “psychedelic boogie,” they call it. Their music crosses boundaries with an ease… More »

Lion Babe – “Jump Hi” (Feat. Childish Gambino) Video (Stereogum Premiere)

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Lady Gaga, it turns out, did a smart thing. She’d made a shitty, ill-advised, creeped-out video with two guys who became public pariahs shortly thereafter, if they weren’t already. And then she scrapped it, though it’s certainly possible that she leaked the piece of it that went up on TMZ. She really had to scra… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

For someone who consistently trumpets his own taste and ably namechecks filmmakers whenever possible, Kanye West sure has a dubious history with music videos. He got all pissy when an early version of his “Black Skinhead” video leaked because viewers weren’t getting the full experience, but then the full experience turned out to be some… More »

Washed Out – “Don’t Give Up” Video

Don’t Give Up” is a lush ripple of a single from Washed Out’s forthcoming sophomore album Paracosm. And for its video, director Kate Moross is on her Planet Earth shit, using nature-documentary footage so pretty and close-up that it seems almost hallucinatory.

Jessie Ware – “Imagine It Was Us” Video

Imagine It Was Us” is a clubby new track from the great British soul singer Jessie Ware, one of the two bonus tracks from the new American edition of her debut album Devotion.

Jessie Ware & BenZel – “If You Love Me” Video

Jessie Ware – “Wildest Moments” Video

The British singer Jessie Ware has been steadily building a seriously strong catalog with her spare, evocative electro-soul, and today she unveils the video for her very good “Wildest Moments” single. The video is about as minimal as it gets: Just Ware, against a blank background, slowly rotating while singing the song and making beatific… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Corban took over for me on this column last week because I went down to Asheville, North Carolina to experience Actionfest, a film festival dedicated entirely to movies where people get kicked in the face or stabbed with broken glass. After four straight days of that, I’m still in something of a bloody-eyeball daze, and… More »

Jessie Ware – “110%” Video

Over the past couple of years, the British producer SBTRKT has incited a new wave of breezy bass-pop singles, and one of his collaborators, the British singer Jessie Ware, is presently following suit. Ware’s Julio Bashmore-produced new single “110%” is a lighter-than-air sigh with some serious bass wobbles. The video’s exquisitely photographed video, from director… More »
