Jack White “Lazaretto” Video

On June 10, Jack White will release his second solo LP, Lazaretto. Today, he has unveiled the album’s first music video, for the title-track. Jack is no stranger to ornate outfits, although his suit in “Lazaretto” screams ostentatious. It’s not just questionable wardrobe choice on his part: he’s drawing attention to himself as a celebrity.

The Canyon Rays “Teenage Bliss” Video

The Canyon Rays “Teenage Bliss” Video

Framed by the television box, “Teenage Bliss” is much more interested in playing with retro computer graphics and colour definition than distinguishing the faces that make up L.A.’s the Canyon Rays. Fronted by Luke Hamel, the five-piece psychedelic pop band has in “Teenage Bliss” a short, feel-good song that is certainly a sign of things […]

Dead Stars “Someone Else” Video

Dead Stars “Someone Else” Video

Bands that take inspiration from musical influences of yore often make videos that pretend to be from that era, using either old-school recording equipment to get at that authentic feel, or by simply recreating that aesthetic through mimicry. Dead Stars is no exception to this rule. Using a video camera,“Someone Else” by the Brooklyn trio […]

The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger “Animals” Video

The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger didn’t leave out a single piece of cult iconography in their video for “Animals”, a parody of the 1970s “spiritual commune,” the Source Family. Children donning animal masks, bearded and beaded men in feathered caps, cloaked figures and nude women joined in group prayers inside pentagrams, red candle […]

Parquet Courts “Sunbathing Animal” Video

Parquet Courts “Sunbathing Animal” Video

Guitars burn auditory rubber, and drums push the speedometer into the red on “Sunbathing Animal”, the title-track from blustering Brooklyn punks Parquet Courts’ upcoming second album. The more speed “Sunbathing Animal” gains, however, the more you notice the severe mismatch between the music and the song’s video. The stationary, continuous black and white shot depicts […]

Fucked Up “Sun Glass” Video

Fucked Up “Sun Glass” Video

Toronto’s hardcore band Fucked Up release a fairly standard music video for “Sun Glass”, the latest song off the band’s fourth studio album, Glass Boys, which will be out June 3. Featuring members of the band walking, biking, and skateboarding, clips of alternative extras fill up the remaining screen time, when Damien Abraham is not […]

La Femme “Welcome America” Video

La Femme “Welcome America” Video

I am actively waiting for the day La Femme blows up in North America, but until then here is a video we can all enjoy off of their debut record, Psycho Tropical Berlin. “Welcome America”, shot using handheld cameras and cellphones that La Femme took while touring the New World, is a shaky document of […]
