What a week for music videos! We managed to narrow it down to 7 for this week’s Friday’s Video Picks with brand new videos from Arcade Fire, QOTSA, Kings of Leon, M.I.A., and Cold War Kids, plus a few Indie88 original gems.
1. The Deep Dark Woods: Indie88 Black Box Sessions
Such a perfect tune for this laid-back Friday.
2. Arcade Fire – Afterlife
Arcade Fire’s new video/short film tells a beautiful and powerful tale about family, life and death.
3. Queens of the Stone Age – The Vampyre of Time and Memory
QOTSA wanted their new video to be like an art installation inspired by horror, weird beauty, and a deep vein of surrealism. Check out the interactive version here.
4. Kings Of Leon – Beautiful War
Another brand new music video/short film with a gripping narrative. This time it’s about a professional rodeo rider.
5. Chilling With Brendan Canning
It’s the weekend and you deserve to chill, so take some pointers from Brendan Canning.
6. M.I.A. – “Y.A.L.A.”
This video is aggressive but will work well to turn your apartment into a rave.
7. Cold War Kids – Pine St.
Even flannel-wearing pigs enjoy a good bon fire set to some lovely tunes.
BONUS: Bob Dylan – Like A Rolling Stone
Better late than never! Watch the interactive video here.
