Videowatch: November

01/12/2012

I was originally going to lump November and December videos together because this is such a quiet time of the year for any promotion, but that would’ve meant delaying the featuring of the new Hot Chip video and that just won’t do.

BENJAMIN GIBBARD – TEARDROP WINDOWS

But first, the single from the Death Cab frontman’s perfectly-pleasant solo album. The song is simple, enjoyable and has an adorkable charm to it all the way from the title. The video is exactly what you’d imagine a song like this would have: lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek, feel-good, quaint. You get the feeling you’ve seen and heard this a billion times before but I don’t know, there’s a charm to Ben Gibbard. It’s hard not to love the guy.

HOT CHIP – DON’T DENY YOUR HEART

Oh my. Hot Chip showcase once again that they’re the greatest video band of the new millennium, and their third cooperation with the wonderful master of absurdity that is Peter Serafinowicz bears beautiful fruit again. It’s not a video to describe, it’s a video to experience. Football, for once, is entertaining to watch. (song is brilliant too)
