Music Videos of the Week: Boys Noize, Supermassive Black Hole, Party Kids
Last week’s top music videos featured tracks from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Bingo Players, Far East Movement, and Ty Dolla $ign. This week we’ve got masterful short movies for tunes that will turn your weak day into a strong night. Thanks to these emerging sound surgeons, we can finally give you what you want whether it’s a march to the sea or forgiveness. Now, you can be a rapstar with party kids as you get lost in a supermassive black hole. That’s right – these videos belong to you. Check ‘em out and leave suggestions in the comments section at the bottom.
“What You Want” by Boys Noize via S-L-A
It’s the Church of Scientology for Superheroes. Hey, I’ll chant whatever you want to whichever higher power if I can just get X-ray vision (the kind where you can see through clothes and walls), and mind-reading.
“Supermassive Black Hole” by 2CELLOS featuring Naya Rivera via Blastro
The Croatian cello duo consisting of Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser was discovered after uploading a music video of their cello-only cover of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal”. In addition to this cover of Muse’s hit, their new album In2ition features covers of AC/DC’s Highway to Hell and Coldplay’s Clocks. As for Naya, I don’t want to watch Glee, but I could be convinced if I can watch on mute with 2CELLOS covering Guns ‘n’ Roses playing in the background.
“Party Kids” by Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside via InterSessions
Founded in 2007, the Portland-based rockabilly band is comprised of members Sallie Ford, Tyler Tornfelt, Ford Tennis and Jeff Munger. Their new album cover features a topless woman wearing a steer skull. They also like to party. And I’m now one of their groupies.
“Finally” by Lorenzo DiGrasso (P. Brunkow Remix) via Anthony Furlong
Lorenzo’s been on the scene for more than a decade, which is longer than the dancing superhero kids featured in this video have been alive. This video is a shining example of why I don’t challenge kids to a dance battle. Other drunken adults are fine, but kids are sober and have limitless energy and are light on their feet.
“Belong To You” by Lena Fayre via Tim Heslin
This is the debut single for the 16 year old sensation whose album is tentatively set to release this Spring. The video follows a couple torn apart as victims of bad choices. As a person who makes a LOT of bad choices, this video is very reassuring. At the very least, my life will make for a really cool short film.
“March to the Sea” by Baroness via Relapse Records
This band’s from Savannah, Georgia but they grew up together in Lexington, Virginia. The song is the second single off their Yellow & Green album, which released last summer and hit #8 on the US Indie and US Rock charts.
“Rapstar” by UGC via MiShorts
This one’s an “oldie” by internet standards, having released in 2007, but it just made its way onto Dailymotion and since I’ve never seen it before, it’s new to me. The video is like a mix of Spike Lee as Mars Blackmon with a heavy coating of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Dope on a rope.
