- Jan 24, 2014

In this week's best videos, we saw a deadly mountain, bored spies, and two instances of technology's scary grasp on human beings. Watch below:


Cass McCombs, “Unearthed”

“Let's just say if this was a film noir, that mountain would be the femme fatale: sexy and dangerous to all who would attempt to conquer it.”

Future Islands, “Seasons (Waiting On You)”

Jay Buim directs the tender, striking portrait of a land forgotten by time and dissed by Borat.”

Holly Herndon, “Chorus”

“Just when the memory of Oneohtrix Point Never and Jon Rafman's “Still Life (Betamale)” was beginning to recede, there's another unsettling vision of Internet life.”

Damon Albarn, “Everyday Robots”

“Surf the uncanny valley in (almost) real-time as you watch the skull that houses the brain that made Blur rendered in agonizing detail, to the tune of Albarn's technology-indicting new single.”

Freelove Fenner, Surveilling The Void

Part 1: “Lash and Brow”

“Surveilling The Void is a three-part spy short...Fixture Records head / Brave Radar member Tessa Smith plays a young spy, likely drawn into the game with visions of James Bond and M (Judi Dench version), but she instead becomes a minor cog in a useless apparatus, wandering bored and snapping photos.”
