Welcome to our weekly roundup of the best new videos on the internet
With the advent of high-speed internet, we’re living in a bit of a golden age for the music video – but we’re also reaching a point where you see at least one of the bloody things every time you open your eyes.
The question is, how do you know which videos are stone cold classics and which are just dust in the wind of the World Wide Web?
As usual, we’re here to help! We’ve rounded up the most notable clips from the last seven days from the far-flung recesses of the internet.
Check them out after the drop.
PJ Harvey - The Orange MonkeyDirected by: Seamus Murphy
PJ Harvey’s latest album The Hope Six Demolition Project is an exploration of poverty, displacement and unreported issues from across the globe. In her newest video her voyage of discovery takes her to Afghanistan where film maker and poet Seamus Murphy casts light on stunning landscapes and day-to-day life in the war torn country.
Dark Funeral - Unchain My Soul
Despite the fact that pretty much everyone thinks the intro to this song sounds like Abba’s Gimme, Gimme, Gimme the long-awaited return of black metal titans Dark Funeral is far from disappointing.
Unchain My Soul evolves into a crushing, thrash inflected anthem while its video sees the satanic Swedes burrowing into the depths of hell and raising the dead. Coooooooooooool.
Band of Horses - Whatever, Wherever
Following on from their surreal clip for Casual Party Band of Horses have returned with Whatever, Wherever, their second from their upcoming album Why Are You OK.
The new video is a slightly more nostalgic affair that sees lead-singer Ben Bridwell throwing a party for family, friends and fellow Horses in his back yard. It’s a simple shoot but it doesn’t half like a good time.
Angel Olsen - InternDirected by: Ashley Connor
Intern is the first taste of Angel Olsen’s follow up to 2014’s Burn Your Fire For No Witness.
The song is a woozy ballad that utilises wavering vocals and dreamy melodies to a chilling resolve. Couple that with Olsen’s silver wig and deadpan gaze into the camera and you’ve got yourself a Monday morning hangover cure like no other. Can’t wait to hear more.
Schoolboy Q - THat Part ft. Kanye West
Schoolboy Q’s Kanye West collaboration THat Part finally has a music video and yes, Kanye actually showed up to shoot a cameo.
The video sees Schoolboy shot through a blue filter surrounded by faceless goon as Kanye bombs his way around a large house before breaking out into the street and stopping a school bus.
This track absolutely bangs and the video is as hyperactive (and unnerving) as Yeezus himself.
Miss Red - FeverDirected by: Hiroo Tanaka
It’s no secret that Miss Red is one of Crack Magazine’s favourite MCs. The Israeli-born wordsmith is a frequent collaborator with The Bug and her solo jams are always on point.
The video for Fever is a super scary, black and white affair that compliments Fever‘s stripped back beat and haunted vocals. Keep ’em coming Miss Red.
