Promos of the week

Here’s a fresh crop of music videos for your delectation. First up is Chris Milk’s bug-ridden promo for Gnarls Barkley’s cover of Violent Femmes track Gone Daddy Gone, which reveals a surprising tale of unrequited love between a flea and a woman. Hmmm.

This frenetic video for Dartz – by Marcus Diamond and James Harris (the pair are one half of Shameless Films) – captures the exuberance of the track brilliantly. Including photography by Richard Bartram, Trudie, Dan Shannon,
Natalie Boxall and Jonathan Smith, the film also features a heady mix of Diamond’s trademark collage and illustration.

In true Rolf Harris can-you-tell-what-it-is-yet fashion a man with pen (in fact illustrator Chris Fenner) is let loose on a white wall in Dan Lowe’s video for Field Music‘s forthcoming single In Context. It’s a really simple idea that seems to have been done in one hypnotic take with a nice reveal right at the end.

Director Ben Rollason conjures up the ultimate house party – brilliant fancy dress, dancing, puking, snogging – in his video for Little Man Tate‘s House Party at Bootheys.

Not strictly speaking a music video, but the beeb’s Radio 2 dream live line-up is well worth a look (Sheryl Crow though? Surely not…)

Finally, this isn’t a music video at all but seems a nice note to end on, as Pes conjures up memories of computer games in days gone by.
