Sky Ferreira

Watch Sky Ferreira Get Tough in “I Blame Myself” Music Video

Sky Ferreira has released the music video for Night Time, My Time song “I Blame Myself” and it’s got all the ’90s street cred, fresh-out-of-prison stuff you could want. Styled by Ian Bradley and produced by SSENSE and System Magazine, the music video is the first of a series intended to connect fashion film and music videos.

Supposedly the video is based on real events (“It’s obviously based off of real events,” Ferreira said. “People always ask me questions about certain things, and it’s kind of like my response. I think actions speak louder than words.”), which certainly seems to …

Watch Off!’s Video For “Red White And Black,” It’s A Riot

It’s like no one appreciated the art of a good music video nowadays. Thankfully bands like Off! still take the time to put some effort behind theirs. The video for “Red White and Black” doesn’t just tell a story and have guest stars, it’s hilarious too!

The clip has comedians Brian Posehn and Dave Foley playing fascist generals performing for their followers at a bar. One thing leads to another and there ends up being an all out race war, complete with comical bottle breaking fight scenes between the two gangs. You’ll also notice Tool’s Danny Carey, Melvins’ Dale Crover …

Childish Gambino Hates His Record Label

Things have been weird with Childish Gambino since he started promoting his Sophomore album near the end of summer 2013. Between videos that play like movies, random singles, and late night tweet-sprees on everything from the assumption Dan Harmon hates him, to his label’s belief that his latest album was not meant for a winter release, the evolution of Childish Gambino in the public eye over the last year has been unlike any other.

Today, Childish – aka Donald Glover – took to Twitter to vent about his frustrations with his label’s recent rollout of a new video and tour …

Watch Pop Evil Get Sentimental With “Torn To Pieces” Video

Pop Evil decided to let the video for their latest single, “Torn to Pieces,” stand alone by giving it its own deep storyline to follow.

Before this video the three previous singles from the band’s 2013 release Onyx were part of a trilogy. “Trenches,” “Deal With the Devil” and “Behind Closed Doors” all had a plot that tied them together. This time around Pop Evil teamed up with director Johan Carlen to give “Torn to Pieces” its own footing. They really played on the emotion felt when frontman Leigh Kakaty’s dad passed away by having the singer see his loved …

Watch Foxes’ Party In “Holding Onto Heaven” Video

With eyes as large as Zooey Deschanel and a Grammy already under her belt for her collaboration with Zedd, it’s no wonder people are constantly intoxicated by Louisa Rose Allen, better known as Foxes. She’s only making it harder to ignore her thanks to her new video for “Holding Onto Heaven.”

In the clip you get two sides of one story – a party scene that has its ups that include dance sequences and its downs, the more demure parts of the track. This song follows “Youth” and “Let Go for Tonight” as the third single off Foxes’ highly anticipated …

Donald Glover has taken a more artistic approach to the cinematography of his videos for his most recent record, Because The Internet. “Sweatpants” shows Donald looping around a diner, slowly watching everyone turn into different versions of himself.
