Watch: The Arctic Monkeys-The View from the Afternoon

Image hosting by Photobucket

You're sick of hearing about the Arctic Monkeys. I know. Plus, I'm posting two whole videos today. So, why give them extra attention? Probably the great execution of this video, the brilliant snappy ending, the tone of the video. It's heavy. It's all in black and white. Only the drummer shows up in it--in fact, the whole premise is that the drummer is giving it all he's got in the middle of the street and being subjected to various mistreatments. The intensity of the video, the simple but effective characters flashing in and out...it's well worth it.

Watch: Tiga-Far From Home

If you looked up "strut" in the dictionary, I think Tiga's little trip here should pop up in all its muddy-spring color palette glory. It's so carefree, and the concept so simple but cute. Watching it is a real delight. I love his little foot tapping moment little through the first verse, and other simple details makes it such a pleasant experience. Although the ending is a bit weak, the video is bouncy enough to keep you watching. In terms of demeanor and even looks, Tiga reminds me of Stephen Malkmus, which, of course, is always a wonderful thing.
