Magnificent seven

A pile of music-related videos, plus tornadoes

It was a big week for music-related videos. Here’s a stack that will keep you busy for a good while.

Here’s NMF Main Stage band Foot Patrol’s muddy, skanky, marginally NSFW clip about their new dance, “The Mudslide.” If this inspires your groove, well, your Saturday just got better.



Heard about The Flaming Lips’ gummy-skull-music-release method? Well, here’s Wayne Coyne dropping the very first edibles off for sale at Guestroom Records (via Delo Creative). Woo-hoo!



The members of Verden, Okla.’s Southern rockers Anti-Mortem have tons of hair to headbang, and they put it to good use here.



Directors Lamar + Nik get creative with melting and growing ice sculptures in this fascinating clip for chillwave/not-chillwave tune “Reds” by Houses.



Ruby Coast (RIYL: Tokyo Police Club) dropped this gorgeous video for “Made to Change” that includes synchronized ice skating, geese and snowy landscapes.

SXSW fave Braids gets a mini-documentary, complete with interviews and four uninterrupted performances. It is pretty remarkable.  

And for you tornado junkies out there, here’s terrifying video of some massive, deadly twisters that ripped through Alabama yesterday. —Stephen Carradini

VOTD: Shitty/Awesome, 'Hang Up'

‘That’s the waaaaayyyy we becaaaaaaaame the Shitty/Awesome Bunch!’


Local noise-rock/record store dudes Shitty/Awesome go all “Brady Bunch” on us with this one. I can’t remember if it was Jan or Marcia I developed a crush for when I was a kid and addicted to Nick at Nite.

Gotta be Marcia.—Matt Carney

VOTD: Broncho rips Guestroom a new one

Okie punks whip up a frenzy at their album release show.

If you’ve still yet to attend* a Broncho show, you are mistaken.

Luckily, you’ve got a chance to fix that problem tomorrow, when they play the OU campus with Stardeath and White Dwarfs and Chrome Pony. If this video of their recent vinyl-release show at Guestroom Records doesn’t get you excited for it, then you might need to reevaluate your existence.

It’s also worth pointing out that this thing, shot in black-and-white by Nathan Poppe, is probably one of the budding director’s finest spontaneous works. The gritty close-ups and use of contrast is top-notch, and as they say, he’s not afraid to get right in the middle of the fray.


*I use the term “attend” loosely here. A Broncho show is really more like something you survive.
