This Week’s 5 Best Music Videos: Neko Case, White Lung, Zammuto and more…

Neko Case calls out nerd culture, plus killer collages, animal close-ups and more.

- Jul 11, 2014
Old videos can be art. So can nerds, and animals. It's all about discovery, this week.

Neko Case and Kelly Hogan, "These Aren't The Droids"

These Aren't the Droids (Neko Case, Ellie Kemper, Kelly Hogan)

"This little comic gem is a rebel song in the plainest sense: the future was designed by teenage guys, it looks like a permanent comic-con, and that's not a future that Neko Case or Kelly Hogan (or I for that matter) really want to live in."

Nerd redux.

Plurabelle, "Our Fires"

"On the Vimeo description page, the director claims influence from Charles Burns, adolescence, John Carpenter and manga innovator Maruo Suehiro's "ero-guro" style (which also inspired Midori, a film suppressed in Japan for "illegal imagery")."

The graphic, disturbing, NSFW Midori.

Zammuto, "Great Equator"

Zammuto - Great Equator (Official Music Video)

"...hopes to magically transport you into images straight from the pages of National Geographic. Not the ones about famine or environmental collapse, but with the pretty close-ups of animals and tech."

Animals are good.

White Lung, "In Your Home"

White Lung - In Your Home (Official Video)

"The Vancouver punks themselves and a bunch of stand-ins get styled like gross dolls, with other faces occasionally superimposed as they rock out in a black and white night terror with the Deep Fantasy cover art in the background and hell's hobby horses as their noble steeds."

A nightmare room. 

Lee Paradise, "Farisian"

"Late 20th Century bombshells like Juliette Lewis and Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction get mashed alongside Blade Runner footage and an assortment of other films. You'll wish you could put it on your wall."

An ancestor of George Barber, scratch video artist.
