Videos for the Veekend // 5|14 – 5|16

Friday, May 14th, 2010

Got a mega-edition of this week’s video round-up, so let’s just jump right in:

The first video is the official cut for the Swedish percussion duo Wildbirds & Peacedrums track “Bleed Like There Was No Other Flood” (via It’s A Trap). The beautiful visual projections match perfectly with the mysterious, if not all out dark, tone of the chorally-dense song:

Switching gears a bit, this mash-up between Weezy F. Baby and The Office is unbelievable (courtesy of Get Off the Coast). Once you get past the initial shock of hearing the two paired together, you find that the two actually work pretty damn well together:

Although I’ve been a bit mum about them on the blog, I’ve been spinning the blissful lo-fi pop songs of Brooklyn’s Beach Fossils a lot lately. Here’s a stellar video put together by Wooden Lens for their track “Window View” (via Delicious Scopitone):

Behind Sincerely Yours, I would say that Labrador Records is my second favorite Swedish label. They somehow have a knack for finding and signing bands that pump out a great variety of pop songs. The latest music video from one of their artists is this treat by the Mary Onettes entitled “The Night Before the Funeral”:

Nice to see the behemoths over at Pitchfork give some love to PT-Music favorites Memoryhouse. Here is their official music video for their beautiful bedroom pop song “Lately (Deuxieme)” as premiered on p4k’s .tv spin-off:

David Greenwald posted this amazing video on his Rawkblog of Dan Bejar (of Destroyer, New Pornos, Swan Lake fame) acoustically performing “The Freedom”. Take a listen:

In case you’ve been living in a cave, here is the official video for The National’s “Bloodbuzz Ohio” (via IGIF). Great stuff as usual…

To wrap-up this mega listing of videos, here is a brand spanking new track by Philly uncategorizable band Man Man as posted by Matt over at You Ain’t No Picasso. Soooo excited for this record to be released!
