It would be too easy to say David Strange was strange; he is just plain weird. But luckily, weird is usually good, and so is Strange. Known for being a guitarist in Courtney Love’s band, he took off and released his self-titled solo album earlier this year. Now he shares a new video for the track “Vitamin Pills,” and it’s pretty bizarre. That being said, it’s an extremely entertaining and interesting clip with great special effects and a pretty solid story. We are proud to premiere it today on magnetmagazine.com. Check it out below.
Lousiana’s Brother Dege, whose music appeared in Quentin Tarantino’s film Django Unchained, has a new video for “Too Old To Die Young.” The clip is a collection of scenes from Dege’45-minute road movie called Set It Off.

“Data Blockers” is the first music video from up-and-coming singer/songwriter Bonzie. The song is off the Chicago native’s debut album, Rift Into The Secret Of Things. Says Bonzie of the clip, “I wanted to show that the infrastructures we build are outside of us. Economic infrastructures and conceptual infrastructures—like a generally accepted idea or stereotype. I wanted to externalize these things. Within the video, the person standing in the middle of the city painting the pyramid represents this. It should have more to do with the paintbrush in your own hand, the color that you choose, where you would land in a pyramid that has no bottom or top. The people in the video were portrayed how they wanted to be portrayed. I wanted to show humanity—strip everything else.” We are proud to premiere the clip today on magnetmagazine.com. Watch it below.
Perhaps it’s odd that someone by the name of Father John Misty would release a NSFW video, or maybe it’s just perfect. We know he’s not a real Father (in the religious or procreation sense), but we know that he’s actually J. Tillman, he was previously in Fleet Foxes and he can still make some damn good music on his own. He now has a new, short album teaser for I Love You Honeybear, due out February 9. Watch it below.
Arrica Rose & The …’s released their latest full-length, WAVEFUNCTION, in November and now share a new video for “Love You Like That.” The clip is about positive emotion turning into aggression and overwhelming the self.

MAGNET named Too Bright one of the year’s 25 best album, and deservedly so. Over the course of three LPs, Perfume Genius (a.k.a. Mike Hadreas) just keeps getting better and better. Fool is the latest single off Too Bright, and Hadreas just made a video for the track. Watch it below.
Philadelphia dream-pop sextet A Sunny Day In Glasgow released its stellar Sea When Absent album over the summer, and now the band has a new video for “Crushin’.” The clip looks like it takes place in the past, as the film also starts to crackle throughout, and what’s happening pairs well with the ambience of the music. Check it out below.
