Videos of the Week

Short work week is almost over with and onward with another lovely weekend. Here are the videos this week that got me up and attem:

Hooray For Earth "Black Trees" (Feat. Zambri) Live @ RAD Studio from stereogum on Vimeo.

Live performance video of Hooray For Earth, doing the closing track from their latest album. I am thrilled to see them in Atlanta soon, opening for Cymbals Eat Guitars.

I love this catchy little track from Diamond Rings. And he always puts out fun videos for his singles. I can't wait to see him live tomorrow night opening for Twin Shadow.

Video from synth-poppers Miracle Fortress. Love how they shot the video to look like old home movies.

Youth Lagoon - Montana from Tyler T Williams on Vimeo.

Youth Lagoon, the bedroom-rock project of musician Trevor Powers, makes music that sounds far older than his 22 years. "Montana" is a epically building track that gets one of the best shot narrative videos I have seen in awhile. It fits the mood of the song so very well. I am really looking forward to his debut album.

While I think the debut album from SBTRKT has stronger parts than the whole, "Pharoahs" is a killer track, which now has a killer video.

Second video ever from Explosions From The Sky, and like the above video from Youth Lagoon, this is another sad, cathartic narrative, this one involving a furry red alien's search for acceptance.
