Fol Chen – “C/U” Music Video

The thing I like about Fol Chen videos is that they barely ever make sense, yet present nonsense in such a captivating way. This line art video for “C/U” features cat ladies — only they’re not really cats so much as they are some weird cross between cat and gopher and squirrel — as well as trees with panels which sing, and lots of Fol Chen’s signature eyeballs. Directed and animated by Nancy Jean Tucker.

Broken Deer – “White Woman” Music Video

This collaged stop-motion animation features a wild and inventive combination of mediums and a breath of fresh — or perhaps incense-scented — air, in my book. You certainly see this kind of aesthetic plenty in still art, but rarely in video art. I’m into it. By Alice Cohen.

White Car – “The Bridge” Music Video

I don’t know why I like this video and song so damn much, but it’s definitely one of my favorites I’ve seen as of late. The inlays, the subtle fades and transitions into black and white.. sure, he looks a little funny and there isn’t much of a storyline (or is there?) but this song is soooooo catchy and the video is soooooooo up my alley.

The Concretes – “All Day” Music Video

With their video for “All Day,” The Concretes are taking projections into boring everyday living spaces. The most visually-stimulating parts are when the projections live in a small corner of a room, adding just a slight accent to normality. It’s a bit like the song itself, which, despite moments of “bright color,” is lethargic, especially with its lyrics which sing, “We want to stay in bed all day, all day, all day.” Directed by: Thomas Klementsson Produced by: Lisa Milberg & Thomas Klementsson DOP: Thomas Klementsson Edited by: Anton Skott Ω
