"Fancy Restaurant," the lead single off of Gang Colours' debut LP, Keychains, is a warm and wistful bit of electric soul, carried by a R&B piano line with some plodding support from a synth bass. The delicate sound runs in sharp contrast to the musical nom de plume of UK producer Will Ozanne. For the video, director Samuel Craven ditched the crispy high-def look in favour of a throwback Super......read more
On "Sa Sa Samoa," the pure pop bliss of Sweden's Korallreven gets augmented by the equally ethereal vocal loop stylings of Julianna Barwick. Director Filip Nilsson gives the transcendent, hymnal song a fittingly haunting video treatment, in which a scraggly-bearded fellow in a nice rain slicker carries around a mysterious box. We've got gorgeous natural landscapes, twinkling......read more

2012 appears to be Bon Iver's year. We're barely through February, and the Eau Claire, Wisconsin band, led by main man Justin Vernon, has already notched a Grammy for Best New Artist and appeared on Saturday Night Live. With this newly-dropped video for "Towers," off of the outfit's stellar self-titled LP, the list of accomplishments continues to grow. Directed by Nabil Elderkin (who also......read more

The tune finds the Brit producer combining chopped-up guitar and bluesy vox to a rolling beat and some full-bodied bass. Canty's psychedelic visuals nicely complement the vibe. It doesn't......read more
Kaleidoscopic visuals seem to be having a bit of a moment in music videos of late. We're not mad. Directed by Sam Zimman, the new video for Sharon Van Etten's "Leonard," one of several standout tracks off her excellent 2012 release, Tramp, continues the trend. The clip simulates the feeling you'd get if you were staring into a kaleidoscope as you drove through the city, which is not a......read more
Bowerbirds' uniquely pastoral folk sound gets an appropriately-themed video in this clip for new single "Tuck the Darkness In." Directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada, the video finds a doe-eyed boy considering the lives of fish after he catches a couple and feels terrible about it. He goes on to observe the sea creatures in a variety of habitats, mournfully coming to terms with what he did. It's......read more
Harkening the Richard Linklater film Waking Life, this new(ish) rotoscoping video for "New Sum (Nous Sommes)" by Hey Rosetta! is a nice little bit of live action animation. Directed by Jesse Davidge and produced at Blatant Studios in Vancouver, the clip features performance footage mainly filmed at the band's sold out show at the Commodore Ballroom late last year. Interwoven in the narrative is a......read more
