It’s a beautiful sunny Friday here in Berlin and that time of the week again where we pick some of the best and newest videos from the past few days, so you don’t have to scroll endlessly through the internet. We have some vintage visual treats for you this time around – enjoy!
Alaska Thunderfuck – This Is My Hair
Alaska is pretty pissed about people mistaking her hair for a wig, so naturally she’s gone and made a song about it. Even if it is a little confusing. Her full length album, ‘Anus’, is out now! But before you take a listen to that beautifully named collection of songs, check out our chat and exclusive photos with Alaska here.
Terriers provide the first release for new label Rhythm Nation – the Dublin born duo supplying three heavy but melodic tracks that range from raw (without being harsh) to deep, stringy, Detroit-rooted techno. No peak-time tools, but tracks to play over and over. The pair spent the summer of 2014 under the tutelage of Levon Vincent, working on their distinctive and elegant sound that belies their young years. This is such a good track and pairs amazingly with the glitchy VHS style visuals from Bong Gozzling. Strong name.
Super happy Seattle-based foursome Tangerine, are made up of of sisters Marika and Miro along with with friends Toby and Ryan. ‘Tiny Islands’ was originally on their 2014 EP, ‘Behemoth!’, but it just received the music video treatment. The video, which was shot on a 16mm camera by Emily Deering, is a perfect pairing with the wildly infectious track. In the first half, the crew are wandering around aimlessly in the summer sun and then find themselves at a pretty decent looking house party. It all sounds normal, but you can see for yourself it gets a little trippy in there.
I wish I could move like this! Straight from the debut album ‘Lava’ (released this August), electronic Berliners, Nod One’s Head, present their very sleek looking video of the same name. “What is lava? Lava is hot. Lava is unstoppable and so is this track! Already known for their very own sound, the tuneful-two from Berlin completely overshot the mark with this one. We get Hip Hop, we get Break Beats and House and, most of all, we get Moritz Bommert’s feisty synth and the great voice of Charlotte Bühler. Hot hot heat, no one can stop this emission of lava…”
One of the most exciting producers amongst South Africa’s thriving production scene, Yannick Illunga, aka Petite Noir is preparing the release of a new LP, an 11 track offering entitled ‘La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful’. The new effort will follow Petite Noir’s excellent ‘The King of Anxiety’ EP, which dropped only last year and featured the talents of Yasiin Bey. So during that wait let’s enjoy Yannick’s latest video, filmed in the streets of Lubumbash with his girlfriend.
