Run The Jewels – “Oh My Darling Don’t Cry” Video (NSFW)

Earlier today, Stereogum named Run The Jewels’ RTJ2 as the year’s best album. It is a beast of a thing, and songs as frantic and layered as the ones on that LP can support a few different interpretations. RTJ’s last video, for “Blockbuster Night Part 1,” was a bleakly comic vision of EMTs who could… More »

Franz Ferdinand – “Love Illumination” Video

Shortly after announcing their impending new album Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, Franz Ferdinand shared a pair of singles, the mercilessly catchy “Right Action” and the saxophone-spiked “Love Illumination.” For the “Right Action” video, the band dug into its past, recruiting “Take Me Out” video director Jonas Odell for some slick graphic-design action. But… More »

Run The Jewels – “36” Chain” Video

El-P and Killer Mike have a proud history of making cartoonishly violent music videos, both alone and together, and the first video for their Run The Jewels collaborative project ups the gore content once again. The video for “36” Chain” opens when marauders kidnap Mr. Killums, the sociopathic puppet from El’s “The Full Retard” video,… More »

Depeche Mode – “Heaven” Video

Depeche Mode have a new album called Delta Machine on the way, and a couple of days ago we heard the dramatic lead single “Heaven.” And now here’s the video, from director Timothy Saccenti, in which the band, playing in a dusty old church, co-stars alongside skulls and druid-robed aliens and ghost trees. It’s almost… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Virtually the entire music-blogging universe (except me) is at CMJ right now, so you’ll have to forgive the indie music universe for neglecting to drop too many videos in the past seven days. I always think it’s funny how things come to a near-complete stop for the assumption that most music writers and publicists are… More »

El-P – “Stay Down” Video

“Stay Down” is the awesomely discordant Nick Diamonds collab from El-P’s great recent album Cancer For Cure. Diamonds isn’t in the song’s video, but TV On The Radio’s Jaleel Bunton steps in, playing Diamonds as some sort of celestial rock god who sends crowds into riotous fits. Those same crowds, it happens, aren’t as happy… More »

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 »

El-P – “The Full Retard” Video (NSFW)

In the video for “The Full Retard,” the intensely banging first single from El-P’s excellent new Cancer For Cure album, El and a ratty squirrel puppet go on a ridiculous sex-and-drugs-and-random-assaults spree. The video manages to be simultaneously pretty funny and fucking disturbing, which feels like an impressive feat. Timothy Saccenti directs. Watch it and… More »
