Music Video of the Day: Artifacts by Karate, Guns & Tanning (2021, dir by Andrew Knives)

You run and you run and you run and where do you end up?  You just end up still running.  This video appeals to my existential side, which is probably why I like it so much.  The whole grainy retro feel, combined with the run through the universe makes this entire video feel like sort of existential daydream.  Keep running because who knows where you’ll eventually end up.


Music Video of the Day: You Get In My Way by Ali Barter (2021, dir by Bryce Padovan)

When I first saw this, I have to admit that I misread the title as being “You got in my way” and, since I suck at understanding lyrics, I assumed that this song was about a hit-and-run accident or something like that.  Like maybe Ali was explaining that it was unfortunate that she ran you over but she was driving home at four in the morning and she was a little distracted and then you just happened to step off the curb.  Seriously — what were you thinking!?

Actually, though, this is song is abut Ali singing about a boy who seems to be perfect but who still kind of cramps her style.  She’s got the stability of a relationship but sometimes, that stability gets in the way of her just doing what she wants to do.  Is she sacrificing her freedom?  It’s a legitimate question and one to which I think any former or current wild child can relate.

As for the video, I like it.  It’s simple but fun.

Enjoy and stay out the way!

Music Video of the Day: Nyx by Laurence-Anne (2021, dir by Joey Desjardins)

Hi, everyone!  I’m in charge of “music video of the day” for this week so let’s get things started with this trippy little video from Laurence-Anne.

Basically, you remember those big bulky computers that everyone used to have?  Well, judging from this video, it’s a pretty good thing that we got rid of the because they’ll cause you to sucked into a maze and then melt away.  Seriously, everyone …. melting is just not worth it.  While I personally don’t know anyone who has melted, I imagine that it would be a pretty difficult thing to come back from.  You melt and you can pretty much say goodbye to whatever future plans you may have had.

With that in mind, enjoy!
