Five Video Friday

It's been a while since I've done one of these video bundles, but it's Friday y'all, so let's jam on some cool new videos that I've been stoked about this week.

First and foremost, The Presets recently announced a new record, Pacifica, due to be released on Modular Recordings this September. Anyone who knows me can vouch for how incredibly excited this makes me; it's been over four years since they put out new music. Yesterday, the Australian techno duo shared the totally tripped out video for the first single, "Youth in Trouble". Shall your mind be ever-melted.

THE PRESETS - "YOUTH IN TROUBLE"


In this slightly disturbing new video for Races' dreampop single, "Lies," we see frontman Wade Ryff assaulted by men, women, and children alike in a seemingly average middle class neighborhood, exposing the violence and turmoil that brews beneath the shiny surface of suburban America.


RACES - "LIES"


Staying in a similar thematic vein, in this video for "Always" by Summer Camp, we watch the murderous yet adorable couple roller skate on the boardwalk, wander casinos, and ride merry-go-rounds, all the while having a man bound in the back of their running van with a tube running from the tailpipe into the window. I promise I am not expressing underlying violent feelings, I just really like these songs.

What do you get for partying with monsters? Cake on the floor, apparently. Check out this very intriguing, slightly creepy, hauntingly beautiful video for Danish avant-pop artist Fallulah's new single "Out of It". You can get her debut full-length, The Black Cat Neighbourhood, in the US on August 21.

FALLULAH - "OUT OF IT"


This artist never ceases to impress me. Check out Lupe Fiasco's brand new video. It's as politically charged as you can get.
