Coldplay - “Ink” Interactive Video



Coldplay have released an interactive video of “Ink” from their latest album Ghost Stories. The Blind-directed video prompts you to choose and direct the course of your journey as you follow a man travels around the world to find his lost love. In the version I chose, he never found her — but there are more than 300 possible outcomes. The simple animated characters follow through with your choices of what objects to pick up and what paths to take, givng the viewer control of how the story will end. Check it out at Coldplay’s website.

Sleigh Bells - “That Did It” (Feat. Tink) Video



Last week, Sleigh Bells teamed up with Tink, a brash and badass Chicago singer/rapper who seems poised to take over in 2015, for a Red Bull-sponsored one-off called “That Did It.” Grant Singer directed the brand-new video for the song, and it has Sleigh Bells’ Alexis Krauss and Tink getting all dressed up and striking some serious tough-lady poses. Derek Miller doesn’t even appear in the video, as far as I can tell; this is a lady-solidarity scene. It’s a fun, charismatic video, and you can watch.

EMA - “3Jane” (Official Video)



Earlier this year, EMA released the great album The Future’s Void, which explored ideas about technology and industrial music and where our privacy ends. She’s already made videos for the early singles “Satellites” and “So Blonde,” but her new clip for “3Jane” is something else: An illustration of the themes of both the album and of a feature film that she’s working on developing. The “3Jane” video, from director Y2K, is basically a William Gibson vision rendered as a music video. Anderson lounges about a retro-futuristic California mansion while a cyborg woman, who looks quite a bit like her, looks on. Everything is kept subtle and ambiguous.

Petite Noir - “Chess” (Official Video)



“Chess” is the lead single off of Petite Noir’s forthcoming debut EP The King Of Anxiety. Today Yannick Iluga’s project released a retro video by director Cieron Magat that emanates the dream-like, solitary quality of the song. Iluga sings in uncanny falsetto before his voice sinks to unimaginable depths about two minutes into the track.

Mogwai - “Teenage Exorcists” (Official Video)



Mogwai’s Music Industry 3: Fitness Industry 1 EP comes out next week, and they’ve shared a video for their new track “Teenage Exorcists.” It’s a pretty wild ride: we follow a girl who is suspended in mid-air as ectoplasm blasts through her skull and she travels through nothingness until she ends up trapped in a plastic wrapping that takes the shape of a hand. Light emanates from the hole in her skull, like you’re looking up from a well and all that you can see is a bright circle in this distance. The stylized video was directed by Craig Murray.

Steve Gunn - “Tommy’s Congo” (Official Video)



A lot of videos bill themselves as “short films,” but director Nikola Ležaić’s clip for Steve Gunn’s “Tommy’s Congo” can make a better case than most. Gunn is a meditative guitarist and Kurt Vile sideman who released a gorgeous album called Way Out Weather earlier this fall. (We posted his video for its title track.) “Tommy’s Congo” is a blissful seven-minute zone-out with a little Joy Division ominousness in its bones. And its video tells the story of a Serbian woman who attempts to get closer to a coworker and finds herself in increasingly desperate circumstances. It’s an absolutely absorbing piece of work.

Ho99o9 - “Da Blue Nigga From Hell Boy” Video (NSFW)



Noise-rap aggressors Ho99o9 dropped their Mutant Freax EP just in time for Halloween. Lead track “Da Blue Nigga From Hell Boy” does not exactly scream Thanksgiving, but they couldn’t exactly wait for next October to roll around, could they? In keeping with the band name (it’s pronounced “horror”), director Behn Fannin’s video is creepy, gross, and NSFW. It features the duo portraying priests who happen upon a possessed woman. Simulated sex, cannibalism, and blood-covered writhing ensue.

Jack Ü - “Take Ü There” (Feat. Kiesza) Video



Diplo and Skrillex recently hooked up to form a duo called Jack Ü, roping in the rising pop-house star Kiesza to sing on their big, bright, bouncy debut single “Take Ü There.” Their new “Take Ü There” video is really more like two videos in one: The straightforward people-rocking-crowds-on-tour video and the half-animated frantic-mugging video. The two visions bleed over into each other a lot, and the end result is a big chaotic sunburst of energy. Kyle dePinna, Dillon Moore, and Daniel Streit directed the video.

Twin Peaks - “Mind Frame” (Official Video)



Chicago-based Twin Peaks evoke the past in their new video for “Mind Frame.” The lazy garage rock track is accompanied by visuals the band riding on motorbikes behind a green screen filled with hazily retro backdrops, never quite hitting the road or getting in sync with their pretend surroundings.

Torn Hawk - “Because Of M.A.S.K.” (Official Video)



Torn Hawk, the bent electronic instrumental pop project from the experimental guitarist Luke Wyatt, just released the new album Let’s Cry And Do Push Ups At The Same Time; we’ve posted his songs “I’m Flexible” and “Acceptance Speech.” His new video for the pretty, meditative, glitched-out “Because Of M.A.S.K.” (which gets its name from an ’80s cartoon that I really loved) is a digitally distorted meditation on the image of one particular blonde lady with a sword. We see pictures of the lady everywhere, and when we eventually see her for real, she’s not quite what you might hope. Watch the deeply strange video.

Atmosphere - “Fortunate” (Official Video)



If you’ve ever been to see the Minneapolis underground rap duo Atmosphere — and you should; they’re a good show — you know that the line outside the club is a hotbed of a very specific kind of enthusiastic dorkery. That line is where the duo filmed its new video for “Fortunate,” from the recent album Southsiders. Directors Dan Monick and Vanessa Joy Smith film group members Slug and Ant as they amble, in bewildered slow-motion, alongside the many, many kids lined up to see them. Slug keeps his expression studiously blank and accepts random-ass gifts from the audience, and the kids’ faces when they realize what’s happening are pretty great.

Eminem - ‘Guts Over Fear” (Feat. Sia) Video



Eminem and Sia’s single “Guts Over Fear” now has a video to coincide with the release of Eminem’s new Shady Records compilation Shady XV. The clip matches footage of Eminem rapping in a warehouse with a narrative about a boxer overcoming many life obstacles in pursuit of his dreams. He has fear, see, but what he has even more of is guts.

Rick Ross - “If They Knew” (Feat. K. Michelle) Video



During most of the year, it’s extremely difficult for a major-label rap artist to get an album out. During the last six weeks of the year, though, those albums come fast and furious. I have no idea why that would be, but one of the biggest albums of this year’s fourth-quarter rap-album marathon is Rick Ross’ Hood Billionaire, his second studio LP of 2014. He’s already shared a bunch of songs, all of which feature somebody: “Elvis Presley Blvd.” with Project Pat, “Keep Doin’ That” with R. Kelly, “Nickel Rock” with Lil Boosie, “Movin’ Bass” with Jay Z. The latest single is “If They Knew,” a love-rap with the R&B singer K. Michelle. The new video, from Ross’ frequent collaborator DRE Films, has a sloppy soap-opera storyline and the deeply entertaining sight of Ross and Michelle looking glamorous in a laundromat for some reason.

The Decemberists - “Make You Better” Official Video (Feat. Nick Offerman)



The Decemberists’ video for What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World single “Make You Better,” Parks & Recreation stud Nick Offerman plays the host of a low-budget 1970s German TV show where Colin Meloy and company are undertaking a mishap-laden performance. Bill Fishman directed the clip.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds - “Do The Damage” (Official Video)


 “Do The Damage” doesn’t appear on Chasing Yesterday, the forthcoming sophomore album from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. Instead, the peppy space-rock number is the B-side to “In The Heat Of The Moment,” the album’s first single. That didn’t stop Gallagher from making a video for it! Gallagher appears in director Mike Bruce’s new “Do The Damage” video, but only peripherally, as he watches the main storyline unfold on a retro-futuristic TV. In the main part of the video, two rival roller-derby teams take each other on, as Bruce goes nuts with the editing effects. Check it out at Consequence Of Sound.
