The 8 Best Videos Of The Week

This week we’ve got new videos from Hooray For Earth, Broken Social Scene, Tyler, The Creator, and White Lies. I included the Calling All Cars and Border Surrender videos because they both featured long slow-motion foot chases but the latter video also has a surprise at the end of its long, single shot. You’ll also notice some familiar directors this week: Cyriak, Claire Edmondson, and the ever-present trio CANADA. Enjoy:

Hooray For Earth – “True Loves (Cereal Spiller Remix” (Dir. Cyriak)

Cyriak is the artist behind Eskmo’s “We Got More” clip, and behind these animations with over four million YouTube views. This one is another M.C. Escher-esque animation, though this one looks like it’s completely animated (his others use photographs and video clips).

Memory Tapes – “Yes I know” (Dir. Eric Epstein)

This is Eric and Aaron Epstein’s first music video, and it’s an impressive, slick debut. The brothers also created a short film following Matthew Dear as he prepares for a performance.

White Lies – “Holy Ghost” (Dir. CANADA)

Another CANADA video, but this one has some uncharacteristically long shots, including a gorgeous one of White Lies playing in front of disciples. The whole video is framed as scenes from the book of “Holy Ghost,” so you might find some other Biblical scenes in this clip. (via Antville)
