Here is a selection of the best new videos that have landed in CR’s inbox lately, starting with Wade Shotter’s vid for Fujiya & Miyagi’s jaunty little number, Knickerbocker. Quicktime is here.
Touch Me I’m Going To Scream Pt 2, My Morning Jacket, director: Mixtape Club, production company: Hornet Inc
Next up is Mixtape Club’s beautiful animated promo for My Morning Jacket’s track Touch Me I’m Going To Scream Pt. 2. Mixtape apparently drew inspiration for the video from sources including the BBC’s Planet Earth series, foliage plucked from the streets of New York City, and the work of Russian animator Yuri Norstein. Quicktime.
Lights Out, Santogold, director: Kim Gehrig, production company: Academy
Kim Gehrig has directed this video for Santogold track Lights Out. Often performance videos are a little tiresome these days, but with some neat editing, kooky lipstick and fancy backdrops, this one’s pretty special. Quicktime.
What’s Your Problem, The Zutons, director: Scott Lyons, production company: Factory Films
I’m not sure how well this new video for The Zutons’ track What’s Your Problem matches the song, but there’s something about it’s slow-mo styling that keeps you watching nonetheless. Quicktime.
After The Rain, Little Dragon, director: François Vogel, production company: Thomas Thomas Films
Finally, we end with François Vogel’s sweet vid for Little Dragon track, After The Rain. Quicktime.
