Straight To Video

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

If you watched last night’s terrifying fascistic rally, you will probably want to watch a few other things to decompress. If you didn’t watch last night’s terrifying fascistic rally, you probably should, just so you have some idea what we’re all getting ourselves into. And then you should watch a few other things to decompress. One suggestion: Stranger Things and the new season of BoJack Horseman are both on Netflix now, and they’re both great. Another suggestion: the five videos below.

5. Cosmonauts – “Party At Sunday” (NSFW) (Dir. Edgar Obrand & Dominic Santos)

The camera is clearly in love with every last kid in this music video, and it is clearly happy to see all of them getting high and making out with each other.

4. Chris Farren – “Say U Want Me” (Dir. Clay Tatum)

This guy carrying a framed picture of himself everywhere is one of the best running visual jokes I’ve seen in a long time. Also great: The flyer that says he’s playing with a band called Bed Gravy.

3. The Dirty Nil – “Zombie Eyed” (Dir. Cole Northey)

Disgusting and ultra-cheap special effects are some of my favorite things, so you already know I loved this.

2. Schoolboy Q – “JoHn Muir” (Dir. APLUS)

During this album cycle, Schoolboy Q has really turned into one of our great music-video artists. Case in point: Immediately after his epically sad narrative trilogy ends, he gives us the best found-footage movie since Cloverfield.

1. Phantogram – “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” (Dir. Grant Singer)

A zooted-out S&M fever dream about tidal waves and sentient goo and motorcycle jumps and aging. It’s so beautiful.
