Chemical Brothers – Free yourself
Nice to see some artists still spend time and money on their visuals. Supberb.
Gazelle Twin – Glory
Closely followed by perhaps the scariest, more terrifying, artist of the past 4 years and her subsequent video…
Katy Perry, Zedd -365
The premise of the 365 video was also interesting and well presented.
Bjork – All is full of love
The trip into robot world by the Chemics got me thinking about some of my favourite videos. Up steps Bjork.
Nine Inch Nails – Only
Then Reznor takes to the stage with his hiding in safety pins trick…
Prodigy – Girls
Followed by the Essex lads and their 80s synth and visuals.
Massive Attack – Live with me
Finished off by the greatest, most disturbing, music video of all time. Darkness in the way only Massive Attack could do.
Massive Attack – Daydreaming
Once piece of genius deserves another. Yes daddy.
And then you might as well follow it up with the best diss of all time.
Massive Attack – The spoils
In for a penny…. the most beautiful Massive Attack track of all time? I got that feeling, that bad feeling.
Good cop Bad cop – Silk and leather
Enough of the bad vibes, let’s get back to new releases which sound like my favourite 80s tracks…
Underworld – Molehill
Adoring the ‘Drift’ project by Underworld and their willingness to let fans get close to the creativity process. I love this slice of Brian Wilson styled loveliness.
Paul Westerberg – Love you in the fall
The Repalcements were in the car all month, and I often dug into a favourite of Westerberg’s solo work. I love this one and as it happens I love it in the spring.
Creedence Clear Water – Keep on Chooglin
Classic sounds from a band full of riches.
Bill Ryder-Jones – Daniel
Still perhaps my favoruite song of the decade. Absolute masterclass.
