TSB’s Favorite Music Videos
With the VMAs just around the corner, we asked everyone at the office to nominate their favorite music videos this year:
"Hopeless Wanderer" by Mumford & Sons
Kudos to Mumford & Sons for bringing in a great cast (showcasing the comedic power of truly amazing facial expressions) and for also being cool enough to make fun of themselves.
"Safe and Sound" by Capital Cities
I have seen zero videos this year so a quick search of songs I’ve been listening found this one with the band presenting the history of dance in an old LA theater.
"Little Talks" by Of Monsters and Men
I adore this band and this song. This video is what dreams look like. Props to WeWereMonkeys who did the special effects.
"Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" by Tame Impala
"My Recurring Dream" by Cold Mailman | Directed by André Chocron
A wildly ambitious series of nested tracking shots that takes the viewer through a surreal landscape both forwards and backwards beginning and ending at the exact same spot. In terms of sheer planning and execution, one of the most elaborate undertakings I’ve seen since OK GO’s “This Too Shall Pass”.
"Fatty Boom Boom" by Die Antwoord
"Safe" by Hard Youth
My friend Ron Winter directed this video, and it’s close to my heart because he tried to convince me to play the “love interest” by telling me I MIGHT be able to keep the blow up air mattress (THANKS, but no thanks). The vid actually came out last August, but I’m a little behind the times and I think it’s still a pretty good summer in the city jam, and is just the right mix of silly/weird.

After making my fair share of music videos when I was in elementary school… I can appreciate these kids actually getting theirs out there.
