Ho ho ho, another round up on which to end the year. This time, though, instead of just WORDS and occasional pictures, we have moving images, videos for singles released this year, and it is our aim to present here the best NINE videos of 2009.
There's been some outstanding entrants this year, and some pretty piss-poor ones, too, but we'll obviously not be running those. It was hard to narrow it down too much, and that probably reflects the task in balancing the quality of the song with the quality of the video therefore some great songs with good videos got left out. So it is.
In no particular order:
Ramona Falls - 'I Say Fever'
Dir. Stefan Nadelman
Grizzly Bear - 'Two Weeks'
Dir. Patrick Daughters
Patrick Wolf - 'Vulture' (Fairly NSFW)
The Hickey Underworld - 'Blonde Fire' (Marginally NSFW)
Dir. Joe Vanhoutteghem
St. Vincent - 'Marrow'
Dir. Terri Timely
Three Trapped Tigers - '6'
Yeasayer - 'Ambling Alp' (Marginally NSFW)
Dir. Radical Friend
These New Puritans - 'We Want War'
Dir. Daniel Askill
Simian Mobile Disco - 'Audacity Of Huge'
Dirs. Jo Apps & Kate Morross
DiScuss: Is this the whitest list ever? Any better suggestions? Glaring omissions? Favourites from above? Sickened by The Hickey Underworld's video?
