Wallowing in my insomnia, as I usually am, I came to the delayed realization that it has been quite some time since I saw a decent block of music videos anywhere. I find I am nostalgic for the days of Beavis and Butthead and 120 Minutes, where, commentary and comedy aside, I was introduced to bands I never knew of, and directors I had never heard of. A good music video is the fine film of our ADD generation, when executed well it can be 2 minutes of pure sonic and visual bliss, when executed badly it can be a 2 minutes of great comedy and surrealism, but my goal here is to move away from the mediocre videos, the imagery designed by comity to appeal to the widest audience, and remembered by none a year later. These videos will come from many eras and many genres.
To start I have pulled five videos today. All of which are non-english language videos.
Émilie Simon – Désert
Dolphin – Bez Nas
Sigur Ros – Hoppipolla
Einstürzende Neubauten – Stella Maris
Gutter Demons – Pauvre Martin
