A Selection Of This Week’s Best Videos. 20th Oct.

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.






The Black Keys – Little Black Submarines

The band commonly referred to in an “I can’t believe they’re now so big now, how did that happen” context released this new video last week which doesn’t help answer the question.

Jim Jones Revue – It’s Gotta Be About Me

We recently reviewed JJR’s latest album on the site here. This video is from that album, an album that’s been lauded all over.

Jay-Z: The Power of Our Voice

A spoken word piece this one, Jay-Z telling us why Mr Obama is his man.

Joker – Old Era

The brilliant Joker dropped this video last week, one of his best pieces of work & accompanied by a great animated video.

Strife – Show No Mercy – 6131

One for fans of old school hardcore, Strife are coming back after an 11 year absence with a release that, in the UK, is coming out on the fab Holy Roar imprint.

Gravenhurst – Circadian

A complete change of tone, this Gravenhurst track comes from his recent release “The Ghost In Daylight”.

The xx – Chained

The standout track from the bands recent album Coexist.

Big Naturals – Hear The Night Roar

Big Naturals self titled debut album is easily one of my top 10 albums of the year & this track off it is mind blowingly awesome. If you ever get a chance to see these dudes live embrace it. Check out this review of their live show & do not miss them if you like the idea of Big Black crossed with Test Dept.

YUNG SIMMIE – Fake Niggaz – Music Video (Rvidxr Klvn) Prod By Dj Smokey

Sparce, menacing & hazy track from one the better rappers around atm. Yung is, of course, a member of the Raider Clan collective.

Garbage & Screaming Females – Because the Night cover – Houston, TX – 2012

Screaming Females’ singer / guitar played joined Garbage on stage this week to cover a classic Patti Smith’s track ‘Because the Night.’

Mykki Blanco – “Haze.Boogie.Life”

I love all this sinister rap coming through atm. Taut & stuttering this track’s an absolute gem, as is the video.

Dum Dum Girls Perform ‘Season In Hell’ At Their Record Release Show

Recorded by P4k this video includes a live performance of DDG’s Season In Hell AND includes an interview.

Dead Sons – Hangman

Sheffield’s band Dead Sons have just unveiled the video for their new single ‘Hangman’. It comes from the bands debut album The Hollers and the Hymns’ which will be released in early 2013.

Regina Spektor – How

The third single to be taken from Regina Spektor’s album ‘What We Saw In The Cheap Seats’ which we reviewed here.

Bon Iver – Beth / Rest

Great video for Bon Iver’s track Beth / Rest. As the man himself said about it: “It’s kind of about two people who are truly meant for each other and what happens to their essence. How they connect is some other thing that we don’t know how to really talk about.”

Vitalic – Stamina

Twisted electronica, wild & with a slightly bizarre video.

Dam Mantle – “RGB”

Beautifully cinematic video for a song from Dam Mantle’s debut LP ‘Brother’s Fowl’ which is in the shops now.

Lana Del Rey – Ride

And why not? Very long (10 minutes!) video for Ms Rey’s new single “Ride” in which she frolics with some bikers.

True Vulture – Death Grips & Galen Pehrson Collaboration – Art + Music – MOCAtv

Yes more Death Grips! “True Vulture is a unique collaboration between Director and Animator Galen Pehrson and experimental rap outfit Death Grips.”

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.
