March’s Best Videos According To PlayGround

A countdown of our selection of music clips

March’s Best Videos According To PlayGround | PlayGround | Music Features

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.
