This Week's 5 Best Music Videos

This Week’s 5 Best Music Videos: Sharon Van Etten, Fucked Up and more…

Sun punk, sad vampires and murderous pre-teens.

- May 16, 2014
Our favourite videos of the week were the ones we made at this thing. When they go up next week you'll see why. But for now, here's a still-dazzling collection of silver medals.

Fucked Up, "Sun Glass"

Fucked Up - "Sun Glass"

"That meadow may or may not be a cemetary, but the message is already sent. It's time to retire those "Mustard Gas" and "Pink Eyes" monikers: these are now the cuddly punks who pass you a joint and serenade you on acoustic guitar. And you know what? It's still kinda badass."

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, "Until The Sun Explodes"

"For too long, travelling into space has been restricted to the wealthy, the vastly intelligent, and especially the magical. The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart fall into that last category for their "Until The Sun Explodes" video with the '80s Hanna-Barbera cartoon versions of themselves."

Sharon Van Etten, "Every Time The Sun Comes Up"

"For this wrinkled mockup of a Satanic vessel, existential turmoil is worth it to put smiles on the faces of little kids and future nightwalkers."

PUP, "Guilt Trip"

PUP - GUILT TRIP (Official Video)

"The Chandler Levack & Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux directed clip for "Guilt Trip" doesn't pull Dan Burke this time around, but it's nearly as gory, especially when CBC personality Grant Lawrence enters as a hard-drinking, ill-fated cop."

Young Thug, "Stoner"

"Thugger could have easily stuck with his Birdman cameo, Willie Nelson poster, and lots of coloured smoke and been done with it, but freshness seeps in through a cartoony, slapdash flair and a lot of shots of his crew in that one Instagram filter."
