- Feb 21, 2014
It was a stunning week for brutal music videos. Pussy Riot continued to unmask the brutal repression of the Putin regime, Gobby used puppets for a satirical comment on gun violence, and Willis Earl Beal knowingly showed us that he could be a sadistic cult leader, no problem. On a nicer tip, you can also learn how to play a lovely song and learn the history of house music.

Pussy Riot, "Putin Will Teach You How To Love"

Pussy Riot - Putin will teach you how to love / Путин научит тебя любить Родину

"...a new music video that was made, according to the Chicago Tribune, '…to draw attention to the trial of Russians charged with organizing violent mass disorder, following protests on the eve of Putin’s inauguration for a third term as president in May 2012.'"

Gobby, "Red Seal"

Gobby - Red Seal (Official Video)

"An Odd Couple meets Punch & Judy with an America’s Most Wanted as directed by Maya Deren vibe."

Real Estate, "Crime"

Real Estate - How to play... Crime

"For at least one song on Real Estate‘s new album, you won’t have to sift through SpicyTabs.porn to figure out how to play it on guitar."

Willis Earl Beal, "Coming Through"

Willis Earl Beal - Coming Through

"Beal has a rapper’s flair for artistic messiah status in a folk poet’s body. Sometimes it can be trying, but “Coming Through” displays a full awareness, and even respect for, the savagery that such status and social capital can grow in the hearts of men."

Julio Bashmore feat. Jessie Ware, "Peppermint"

Julio Bashmore - "Peppermint" ft. Jessie Ware (Official Video)

"...director Noah Harris turns the song’s energy, sharp and sweet like a katana made of cupcakes, into a highly symbolic animated short 'inspired by the evolution of house.'"
