Great new videos

Utah Saints, Something Good, directed by Eran Creevy
It’s been a while since we’ve done a video round-up on here, in part perhaps because it feels like it’s been a while since there’s been a strong enough selection of new videos around to do it. Here though are six beauties that are currently doing the rounds. First up is Eran Creevy’s extremely funny video for the 2008 remix of Utah Saints’ Something Good. Quicktime is here.

MGMT, Time To Pretend, directed by Ray Tintori

Next is young director Ray Tintori, who recently signed to Partizan on the strength of this splendid vid for MGMT’s Time To Pretend. Quicktime.


Supergrass, Bad Blood, directed by Keith Schofield

Keith Schofield has directed this new video for Supergrass’ Bad Blood, incorporating some nifty (if slightly nausea-inducing) camera tricks. Quicktime.

REM website for Supernatural Superserious, directed by Vincent Moon

REM has followed Arcade Fire’s recent forays into interactive online videos with this website for track Supernatural Superserious. Directed by Vincent Moon, the site offers 12 little films that the viewer can activate or not as to their whim. It’s good to see that more bands are beginning to embrace the web as a place to experiment with videos but this one does seem a fairly limited use of the possibilities it offers for interactivity, especially as most of the films are just the band playing in various different venues. But try it for yourself here.


Morcheeba, Enjoy The Ride, directed by Joel Trussell

Joel Trussell has directed this charming animated video which adds some life to this exceedingly dull track from Morcheeba. Quicktime.


Jay-Z, featuring Pharrell Williams, directed by Philip Andelman

Finally, Philip Andelman has directed this new video for Jay-Z/Pharrell Williams track, I Know. While the vid itself may not be hugely exciting, it seems significant for its lack of hip-hop posturing, or in fact any performances at all. Could we (finally) be seeing a new wave emerging in hip hop promos? Let’s hope so. I couldn’t find a quicktime, so it’s just YouTube I’m afraid – please post a QT link in the comments box if you have one.
