For about five minutes near the beginning of the week, I was thinking that I’d limit this week’s list to Christmas-themed videos, but then the only Christmas-themed videos I saw all week were the Killers clip below and this ridiculous Dropkick Murphys thing. It’s just as well, really, since some truly captivating videos did eventually… More »

M83 – “Wait” Video

The directing team of Fleur & Manu have previously made two amazing videos for “Midnight City” and “Reunion,” two songs from M83’s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming! album, using them to tell the story of a group of escaped superpowered mutant children. Today, they give us the Creators Project-produced clip for “Wait,” which finishes those kids’… More »

M83 – “Steve McQueen” Video

Sadly, M83’s video for the great Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming! burner “Steve McQueen” does not feature the return of the glowy-eyed mutant children from the “Midnight City” and “Reunion” videos.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Last week, we skipped this list so that we could run our list of the 25 best videos of the year thus far. So I’ll just take a moment to point out that last week’s list, if we’d done it, definitely would’ve included SoKo’s “We Might Be Dead By Tomorrow and” Blood Orange’s “I’m SorryMore »

M83 – “Reunion” Video

Last year, M83 released the great video for the Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming! single “Midnight City,” which featured a group of telekinetic glowy-eyed mutant children escaping from a government facility of some kind.
