It’s only getting easier and cheaper to make a music video these days — and all the more important, as artists compete to be heard, largely without the benefit of big pushes from major labels. For those reasons, the music video has undergone something of a mini-renaissance. Every week ARTINFO video editor Tom Chen, photo editor Micah Schmidt, and performing arts editor Nick Catucci will choose five of the most visually engaging music clips from the previous few days, presenting highlights from each in a video supercut, and a slideshow of stills that link back to the full videos.
Magnetic Fields gender-bend in undies with “Andrew in Drag.”
Die Antwoord find their inner CHUDs (in undies) with “I Fink U Freeky.”
The Darkness complement their catchy cartoon-metal with eye-catching cartoons in “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us.”
Trinity unearth freeky found footage for “True Will.”
Micaela, Augustina and Velodia León abuse cassette tapes in “Lullaby Crocodile.”
