The lyric video is dead!

Long live the lyric video.
Directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada this vfx heavy video uses a visual representation of each line without a single lyric on screen. Like if Gondry used After Effects instead of theatre techniques.
The song by Sub Pop‘s hip hop trio clipping is also ace. They described themselves as making party music for the club you wish you hadn’t gone to!

The Asteroids Galaxy Tour – My Club

Director Ryan Staake gives the infinite zoom treatment to The Asteroids Galaxy Tour’s Jacqueline Taieb sampling dancefloor tickler My Club, and if you’re infinite zooming or sampling this monster, you can’t go far wrong in our book.

School – SoLong

Gothenburg’s School sound like they’ve scored Liz Fraser on vocals, and Hooky on bass for this new single, SoLong. It’s a splendid slice of dream pop, and it can be yours from tomorrow, when it is due a UK release.
Presumably the record will be longer than the miserly, yet tantalising 2’47″ clip shown here.

Kelpe – Answered

Noisey have premièred the new video for Kelpe‘s ‘Answered’ and it’s pretty sweet! It’s taken from Fourth: The Golden Eagle, the new LP from the London based producer due out in June on his own label DRUT.

The engaging dance track has an involving visual by Jonathan Lieb.

The Zolas – Escape Artist

Here’s a refreshingly different music video with a twist that’s worth the wait. The soundtrack is provided by Canadian duo The Zolas who seem to have found a new one-louder key signature thingy called Major! It’s heartfelt, pristine pop and there is nothing wrong with that.
