Music Video Tuesday: Mesmerizers

A whole bunch of beautifully shot vids

Colourmusic is now important enough that Vevo has jumped in on their music videos! The lovable Stillwater weirdos celebrate by making a video of ultra-closeups of Ryan Hendrix’s beard, face and skin. It’s disgusting but mesmerizing:



Jabee gets an interview and two songs in this clip from Ackerman McQueen Music. Jabee was a fifth-grade Michael Jackson:



Jake Troth pairs whistling, onomatopoeia and oh-so-smooth electronic pop in an is-it-ironic-or-not? tune. The video’s pretty slick, too: 



Delay Trees’ video for “Cassette 2012” is gorgeously shot in soft hues. It’s not really of anything, but it’s beautiful and, thus, entertaining:



The video for Seun Kuti and Egypt 80’s “Rise” is also fascinating and beautifully shot. I love the dancing here:



While you’re here, grab these MP3s:
“Run” — The Clutters. Rock ’n’ roll that could have been made 50 years ago or 50 years in the future.
“I Love My Family” — The R’s. Quirky pop/rock from an Italian band signed to Nat Geo Music. Yes, National Geographic.
“Back in the Day” — Red Elk. Local rapper speaks to and sounds like olden days of hip-hop.
