It is freezing in Toronto today and I am hiding inside enjoying some music videos. I wanted to share some with you to help warm you up if you are in a cold place as well. Hope you enjoy this week’s picks.
Austra: Spellwork - they are back with a new video.
Trust: Bulbform - check them out before they blow up after Coachella.
Modeselektor: Evil Twin - kind of Spy vs. Spy-esque.
Royal Baths: Black Sheep - art cool.
Superchunk: Crossed Wires - one of my favourite videos from last year.
Steezo: It’s Your Turn - a retro hip-hop classic.
Thanks for watching. See you again next week…make sure to spread the word by sharing the music video picks with your family and friends.
