Here are the latest videos we found and liked this week.
We have a mixed selection, stay tuned.
Starting with a graffiti video, artist Mike Giant drawing the lyrics of the song on a white wall, this is a Major Lazer collab with Pharrel “Aerosol Can”
Next, a bit of NSFW (heck! it’s Sunday, deal with it) – Brooke Candy new track “Opulence” directed by none other than famous photographer Steven Klein – lots of dark bling costumes, glitter, jewelry, speed, at glamourous party, starting Candy upfront rappin’ wild
Thomas Azier’s “Verwandlung” – a story of violent lust and dramatic longing for a connection – a bit explicit, but beautiful none the less.

A slowly paced video, sort of a dreamy experience – ocean house, a writer and his muse, almost the setting of an italian drama film. Directed by Danny Sangra, this is Club Kuru’s “All the Days”
EFDEMIN released “Transducer” with a video shot on Video 8 back in 1990 by Stefan Münster and edited recently by Philllip Sollmann – a deep pressure track, urban footage from Poland, unsettling atmosphere in this one, going back to those early daily after the Iron Curtain fall…
Next, something calm, Lykke Li’s “Gunshot” an acoustic version for H&M Life, a studio video, directed by Bell & Light and Lykke Li herself. A darkish performance, with accent red lights, going really well with the music. Beautiful.
Another live performance video, this time from Atoms for Peace “Before your very eyes” – featuring Thom Yorke & Co. blasting on stage with this energetic performance, you can see why these guys are so special, performing electronic music on real instruments, simply jammin’ together for the crowd, they on another level I guess – wish I could be there myself, oh well…

Kasper Bjørke released “Rush” (feat. Tobias Buch), the first single from his upcoming album. Directed by Rasmus Weng Karlsen – a “take it easy” video, an intimate show of two, lusty looks, low lights, a lap dance with a sensual reveal – yeah, you get the idea
David Lynch released some new material, this is “The Big Dream” a collab with Mobi, featuring Mindy Jones – what can I say, an atmospheric video just like one of Lynch’s movies – a femme fatale performance by Mindy, all blurry, flashing lights, in grainy monochrome. “I wanted the video to look and feel like something that could have been made in Weimar-era Berlin in the 20′s,” said Moby, who also directed the video.
And after Lynch’s gloomy moods, a ‘50s styled video for Tiesto’s “Wasted” – a classic housewives’ tea party gone wild. This one is just for fun to start the weekend!
And there you have it, this week’s selection of videos for your viewing pleasure.
