(Next to Arcade Fire that is)
This is a (VERY) old video of the indie-folk-Balkan group, Beirut’s performance of Postcards from Italy last May 6, 2007 at the Bowery Ballroom, New York.
Welcome to a first of a series of music video collectives here in TBT*‘s Video Shack. If you frequent this blog, you should know how out of the loop I am on the new videos coming out. It would be GREAT if you leave suggestions on any good video you think everyone should see by leaving a comment! I’d be totally down with your suggestion, just as long as it’s worth sharing!
This week’s Video Shack features Mayer Hawthorne‘s Your Easy Lovin’ Ain’t Pleasin’ Nothin’, Nicki Minaj, Mount Kimbie’s “Would Know” and All Summer‘s music video from Best Coast’s Bethany Constantino, Vampire Weekend’s Rostamn Batmanlij and Kid Cudi.
Mayer Hawthorne – Your Easy Lovin’ Ain’t Pleasin’ Nothin’
Mayer Hawthorne can do a lot of things with that voice and retro sound of his. Take Exhibit A, from the music video. The throwback style and dancing attractive women seems like another of his typical weekends.
Three more videos! Check it out inside.
Nicki Minaj – “Your Love”
Nicki Minaj scores gets a big score for doing a 180 degree turn from her warrior-in-training drama closing the video with the dying ending. “Your Love” samples lines from Annie Lennox‘s “No More ‘I Love You’s’,” so seeing some frou frou fashion statement in highly unlikely.
Mount Kimbie – “Would Know”
Mount Kimbie have released a music video for “Would Know” and it was directed by hotly tipped filmaker Tyrone Lebon. The track is taken off their debut album, Crooks & Lovers out now via Hotflush Recordings.
Best Coast, Rostam & Kid Cudi – “All Summer”
Here it is, the hot Converse-funded collab “All Summer” track featuring the between Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino, Kid Cudi, and Rostam Batmanglij. Yeah the mugging of large heads whilst in the apartment might not be your way of spending the summer but these three know how to have fun at it.
Last February 11, Neon Indian made their TV debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Tracks from their album “Psychic Chasms” were performed like Terminally Chill and Ephemeral Artery.
I’m really digging the energy I see from Alan Palomo and the rest of Neon Indian, much less know he has a band. But nonetheless, awesome performance. Its adorable how Jimmy Fallon likes them.

Such a Political Video, don’t you think?
Best. Video. Ever. I never liked the original nursery rhymes anyway. It’s really deadly… Kind of weird at the start but then you remember what mercury was like and you know they’re heading in a completely new direction with their videos… Anyone agree?
I don’t know about you but I have been waiting for this video to be officially posted. I’ve been pretty vocal with my affection for this electro – pop artist, so this won’t come as a surprise that I posted her recent video in Thieves By Tuesday*.
The Miami-vice kind of theme of the video gives you that afterfeel of the beaches, but ironical isn’t it, the video being released this winter season? Nonetheless, this video just proves the ingenious and nonconformist that is La Roux.
The interesting lighting of the video really accentuates La Roux’s short ginger bob. Nice….
TO SAY THAT I FELT DEEPLY EMOTIONAL WATCHING THIS VIDEO LIKE MY WORLD IS IN ALL SHAMBLES IS A MASSIVE UNDERSTATEMENT.
Check the video out inside this post. Download the track inside too.

I must say, Ladyhawke is getting on my good side lately. With this video, I mean. I know I won’t be the first one to say this but this video just puts Ladyhawke ‘s artistic take on music on the map! It’s truly breathtaking *sigh.
