Film At 11: Tulipomania

Tulipomania released its Don’t Be So Sure seven-inch last month, and if you haven’t heard it yet, we’ve got a premiere of a new video to get you on board. “Who Let You Know?” is an understated, weird rock song with all the dry melancholy of Dinosaur Jr, and the clips accentuates the strangeness, the words sung by a face that appears to be disintegrating. Check it out below.

Film At 11: DJ Shadow

DJ Shadow’s “Three Ralphs” is a genuinely haunting instrumental that appears on The Mountain Will Fall. The video is as dark and engrossing as the song, reminiscent of Radiohead’s Kid A visuals. Check it out below.

Film At 11: Joan Of Arc

Joan Of Arc’s new album title is a mouthful (it’s called He’s Got The Whole This Land Is Your Land In His Hands), but “Stranged That Egg Yolk” doesn’t ramble or overstuff. It expands and compresses elegantly. The video is similarly patient—a dancer moves slowly in the darkness, bubbles burst into one another. Check it out below.

Film At 11: Lambchop

Lambchop collaborated with Nashville filmmaker Elise Tyler to make its video for “NIV,” which tells a powerful tale of homelessness and poverty in Music City.
