Music Video Monday: Music makes strange bedfellows

Three rap, two rock, two local, three not

Let’s just take a minute and realize that OKC’s professional sports team is one of only four left still playing in the National Basketball Association.

Yeah. This is awesome. Way to go, Thunder. Way to go, OKC.

Also, it’s Music Video Monday.

Rapper Jabee reps the Thunder, which only makes me more excited for Game 4 tonight. Also getting a shout-out: the biblical man Enoch. Didn’t see that one comin’:



Bizarre patrons of music are becoming increasingly common (National Geographic has a record label?!), but Lipton Iced Tea and Pandora teaming up for a video series that features artist interviews is still a little bit of a head-scratcher. Still, this three-part interview with Stillwater’s Taddy Porter is pretty sweet.

While we’re on the subject of strange patrons, here’s a performance clip of NYC rapper Theophilus London kickin’ it at Cannes. The site and the preview ads are in French, which only contributes to the enjoyment. There are several incredibly surreal moments due to his audience, but the most hilarious is at 2:00:

Kitten’s “Chinatown” manipulates footage (slower, faster, forward, reverse) in a fascinating, mesmerizing way. It’s absurd that the lead singer is 16:

Music Video Monday: Washed Out — Eyes Be Closed

As I imagined it...

Sunglassed, porcelain-skinned model: “OK, so I’m supposed to be riding this motorcycle in front of a green screen while a fan blows my luxurious hair back for nearly four minutes. What’s my inspiration?”


Music video director with English accent: “Right, beau’iful, pretend it’s 1986 and airy synthesizers are back in fashion, just like that spotted dress you’re wearing. You’re first riding through a heavily industrial-looking city on your way out to the countryside, feeling sunshiney pleasure as you finally escape to the clean air. Lean forward and back on the motorcycle, unlike anybody who’s ever rode a motorcycle before. Oh! Now look with back just a hint of fear in your face to make sure nobody’s chasing you! All right, you’re safe now — except you’ve steered off the country road and into a swirling, three-dimensional world of black-and-white patterns that look like they belong in cartoons from the 1980s. Now you’re getting showered with confetti! And cut!”

Ernest Greene of Washed Out: “Now do it all again, but way more chill.”
