Sound and Vision: 28 days of videos

Being the shortest month of the year, February gave me 28 days to find the best videos for your eyes and enjoyment.

Fortunately, I found some really great videos help me remember childhood memories or create fantasy ones, understand the difference between good and bad and to start considering what I want to be for Halloween, birthdays and other random things!

So let’s go!

Lemonade - Lifted
A band out of Brooklyn that captured a couple things in this video, cute kids exploring, feeling free and curious and... I just want to go there. The song is rad too and... it makes me happy.

Jonsi - Go Do
Ok, so this is the first video from Sigur Ros’ lead singer solo record titled “Go” that’ll be released this month! This video is beautiful. He looks beautiful. He is a fictional dreamy character. He is love and singing in english! He also looks like a bird and is hanging out with a lot of them.

Bowerbirds - In Our Talons
You can’t ask for anything more than a dancing crab, a dancing crow and fighting grasshoppers! Well...I’m sure you can, but I’d like to provide a beautiful stop animation music video instead.

Miles Kurosky - Dog In The Burning Building
This is the lead singer of the former band Beluah. I watched this video over and over... I still don’t know what happened. Anyway, it’s a euphoric rush and everyone likes those!

The Phenomenal Handclap Band - Baby
This song is rad. This video makes me think of a massacre. I’m not sure how “rad” and “massacre” relate, except for this video.

Ravenna Woods - Into The World
I think I fantasized this video as a birthday dream. A band I like and Fire Dancers!

Makeout Videotape - Heatwave
Boys are cute. Girls are cute.

Vampire Weekend - Giving Up The Gun
Oh Vampire Weekend. Why, do you please me? Yep, its another video full of cameos... but I’m pleased and you might be too ;)

Sunset Rubdown - Dragon’s Lair
Oh Canada, I’m glad you won the Olympic Hockey game. I’m also really glad that you have a band called Sunset Rubdown who understands that this is what we needed to see for this song. This is everything... everything... all 10min.

Honorable Mention:

Maroon 5 - If I Never See Your Face Again
I realize that you may have never heard a Maroon 5 song on KEXP, but this video is directed by Eric Wareheim of “Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show Great Job”. He’s also directed videos for Major Lazer, Depeche Mode, Flying Lotus, MGMT and more. I recommend exploring him further. I recommend watching them all. He is an epic journey of Music Videos. He is god. I love him.
