Video: Disclosure – “Latch” (feat. Sam Smith)


You know a video for a song is good when you can no longer separate rolling image from melody after exposure.

Rhye – “The Fall”


We’ve been fans of Rhye since their mysterious debut track “Open” came out of nowhere early this year.

The opener of DARKSIDE’s wonderful EP got a video this week that looks like what your weird friends think they’re doing when they go out to the desert. It follows three apocalyptic monks on a quest to find things that shine in a way that works well with Nicolas Jaar’s eerily propellant and open “A1″ […]

Video: Father John Misty – “This Is Sally Hatchet”

Ever find yourself working late in a pizza parlor and have the strange urge to sever your finger on a pie sliced like a pentagram? While not a common urge, few of the deviant concepts in Father John Misty’s video peripherary are. Grant James’ dismal noir take at shotgun violence and brutal sacrifice finds former […]

Video: Feist – “Bittersweet Melodies”

As much as you can debate the effects of digital photography on the medium, there will always be something intoxicating about a photograph.
