So as everything in life, the music industry is cyclical. Do you remember Diddy and Kanye sampling Diana Ross and Chaka Khan? How about the nostalgia of pretty much any 90's band reuniting and touring in the last couple of years? Even better, the recent influx of keyboards and synths to make everything sound like the soundtrack from a John Hughes' movie? Hell, even albums are coming back, actual vinyl. I guess it was only a matter of time before the music video became old and somehow new again. With Mtv removing the "music television" from their programming and logo, artists can make videos and easily place them on their website. Two weeks ago, Band of Horses gave away their newest video. Erykah Badu got ass naked in Dallas for her new song. My how things have changed... So here is my version of 120 Minutes, 4 videos for you to check out because you're not going to get them anywhere else. A channel that plays ONLY music videos, now you're just being ridiculous.
Further proof that music is headed back to the future, Mark Ronson's new single, "Circuit Breaker".
The new The National album is out, so go get it.
The National - "Bloodbuzz Ohio" (official video) from The National on Vimeo.
LCD Soundsystem are coming to Chicago next week, I sure hope you got a ticket.
Finally Boys Noize & Erol Alkan's new masterpiece "Lemonade".
FYI, I intentionally omitted M.I.A.'s newest video because it's damn near everywhere...
