March’s Best Videos According To PlayGround

A countdown of our selection of music clips

The crop of music videos this March was more than notable. Every day we recommend to you the most interesting ones that reach us; now that we have started the first week of April, it’s time to put things in order and highlight the ten most important ones of the month. Here they are, from ten to one, as you can find them on our chart.

10. The Golden Filter: “Kill Me” (Perfectly Isolated)

Kill Me” comes from the EP “Syndromes” , which was the excuse for The Golden Filter to participate in the conception of the short film by the same name. It takes pleasure in a mother’s unhealthy envy of her future daughter-in-law. Tension abounds and it’s a new visual achievement for the New Yorkers.

9. Julia Holter: “Moni Mon Amie” (RVNG Intl.)

Julia Holter, the new Tinkerbell of dream-pop, needed a video like this. It’s homemade and possesses the look of a film-lover, but - without showing off - is full of flashes of imagination and surreal viewpoints. It propels her brilliant “Ekstasis” (RVNG Intl. 2012) ever skyward.

8. Clock Opera: “Man Made” (Moshi Moshi)

Clock Opera now have a release date for their debut album, “Ways To Forget”. Moshi Moshi will have it in the shops from the 23rd April. Meanwhile, we can entertain ourselves with the video for “Man Made”, a contemporary serving of new-wave pop. The star of the piece is a young woman who dresses up as Freddie Mercury and doesn’t stop singing and dancing, wielding a hairdryer that she uses for a microphone.

7. Father John Misty: “Nancy From Now On” (Sub Pop)

Father John Misty - the alias of J. Tillman, formerly of Fleet Foxes - has just released a new video for his debut album, “Fear Fun”, which Sub Pop will bring to the shops on the 1st May. In “Nancy From Now On” we can see Tillman and his lovely companion busy with their favourite sexual pastimes. The song is a gentle piece of folk with subtle, elegant disco touches. Tillman himself directs, along with Amy Cargill.

6. Odd Future: “NY (Ned Flander)” (Odd Future)

The second in a trilogy of videos made by Odd Future for OF Tape Vol.2 begins to shed some light on the psycho-violent deliriums that we saw in “Rella”. In the clip for “NY (Ned Flanders)” we understand that in reality these deliriums are the fruit of hallucinations suffered by Hodgy’s character, after downing half a bottle of pills.

5. Lana Del Rey: “Blue Jeans” (Universal)

Lana Del Rey had promised us a proper video for “Blue Jeans”, and the truth is that it was worth the wait. In black and white and overflowing with class, the American has called again on actor Bradley Soileau to accompany her in this fantasy of watery love. Too aesthetically beautiful for words.

4. Spiritualized: “Hey Jane” (Double Six)

In “Hey Jane”, the director AG Rojas, takes advantage of the nearly nine minutes that the song lasts to offer a sort of short film. It looks like it is supposed to be about the Jane that Jason Pierce is talking about, a black transvestite who is abused and mistreated by several men, although she always knows how to handle the situation.

3. Grimes: “Oblivion” (4AD)

Hearing the name Grimes may make you think of elves and their charms, delicate beings, of a limpid, child-like beauty, wrapped in a special magic. Nevertheless, it turns out that in Emily Kai Bock’s video for “Oblivion”, it’s just the opposite: Claire Boucher on the street, absolutely down-to-earth, without strange clothing, just like the girl next door going to enjoy a motocross show or a football match full of screaming fans. Meanwhile, she puts her headphones on and sings.

2. Chairlift: “Met Before” (Young Turks)

The band places its bets here on the always-attractive idea of “choose your own adventure”, in an interactive clip directed by Jordan Fish. You are in charge of the decisions made by Caroline Polachek, who basically looks for clues in her amorous encounters, in other space-time dimensions, with some of her classmates from University (among whom is one of the members of Violens).

1. The Shoes: “Time To Dance” (Southern Fried)

If you run into Jake Gyllenhaal on the street, don’t trust his good-little-boy face. Run away as fast as you can and fight to save your life from the killer instinct that the Hollywood actor shows in the grand video for “Time To Dance” from French group The Shoes. Press “play” and enjoy the bloody story that, in spite of what it might seem like at first, steers clear of gory exhibitionism.
