A Selection Of This Week’s Best Videos. 15th Sept.

Each week there’s a whole host of new videos released that we’d love to share with you but sadly time never permits.

However there’s no reason for us not to get to Saturday & put a few of them together into a randomly numbered list of our favourites.

Here’s this week’s list.

So what did we miss? There’s bound to be something. Let us know in the comments.

Divorce – Stabby Stab (With Sax)

The band commonly known around these parts as “arguably the best band in world” have a new album set for release on Monday (also called Divorce & which you can buy / order a copy of here) & this week they linked us up to this video from their launch party. On this they’re joined by a saxophonist (James Swinburne) who does his best to invoke the spirit of John Zorn which, of course, compliments with the bands No Waveyness perfectly. Rad as f**k. (Watch this space for an album review).

Dirty Projectors – Hi Custodian

P4k (that’s Pitchfork for those of you who aren’t hip enough to know) this week dropped this long awaited short film written and directed by the Dirty Projectors David Longstreth. Clocking in at a tad over 20 mins it “features several recordings and alternate versions of new Dirty Projectors songs, in addition to other new and unreleased music.” Kick back with a brew & enjoy.

Buke & Gase – Misshaping Introduction

Was gonna just stick the word “jittery” under this one (coz it’s jittery) but decided that’d be a lazy thing to do no matter how accurate. Brooklyn duo Buke & Gase released their new digital EP Function Falls this week & accompanied the release with this (jittery) video.

P.O.S. – Fuck Your Stuff

P.O.S has a new album out on 23rd October & this is one of the tracks off it, Fuck Your Stuff, directed by Isaac Gale and David Jensen.

OFF! – Momma’s Boys

A mini doc which follows OFF! on a recent trip to Brooklyn. It includes the band chatting about their Mums & has a live performance around the middle.

Bonnie “Prince” Billy – Time To Be Clear

It’s animation & it’s sad & it was the highlight track from last years “Wolfroy Goes to Town”.

Smoke DZA x Harry Fraud – Kenny Powers

Apparently this is an “…ode to the world’s douchiest baseball player” while also being about “…everyone’s favorite baseball badass”. Right.

Bat For Lashes – Marilyn

Another trailer for another album, this time Bat For Lashes “The Haunted Man” which drops on Oct 15th.

Transit – “Motorcycle Drive By”

Boston pop-punk band Transit posted a video this weeks of themselves performing a cover of Third Eye Blind’s ”ËœMotorcycle Drive By’.

ALT-J – Fitzpleasure

Alt-J (or ∆ for those of us rocking a Mac) were, of course, one of the better inclusions in this weeks Mercury prize nominations list. The guys have come a long way since that first single that was released by Loud & Quiet, as you can tell from this rather spiffy video.

Flying Lotus – Small Moments

Another album amuse bouche, this one features annoyingly wee previews from the new Flying Lotus’s album ‘Until The Quiet Comes’, out October 1st/2nd on Warp Records. Can. Not. Wait.

As I Lay Dying – A Greater Foundation

New music video for “A Greater Foundation” by As I Lay Dying.

Death Grips – Interview

Death Grips did a very open & honest video interview for Adult Swim this week , as well as releasing this wonderful interactive video.

Captain Murphy – The Killing Joke

The mysterious, mega hyped Captain Murphy released a new video this week, one that was recorded and produced by Flying Lotus. Great video.

Mission of Burma – Semi-Pseudo-Sort-of Plan

Long running post-punk legends Mission of Burma released their latest album Unsound over the Summer. Semi-Pseudo-Sort-of Plan was one of the tracks off it.

“Absu – Hall of the Masters”

It’s that time in the video roundup where I drop a little Texan Black Metal. Grizzly stuff.

Propagandhi – Hard Time

A video of Propagandhi (with Rise Against Bassist Joe Principe) covering Cro Mags Hard Time emerged last week. It’s high NRG stuff.

Divorce – Aids of Space

Just in case anyone didnae believe me when I professed my undying love for this bunch of noise terrorists up at top of tut page here’s a second video of them, one that also came to our ken this week. Another track off their debut album (released on Monday remember?) which you can order / buy here.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
