Woodkid – I Love You

The third in a loose series of videos by Yoann Lemoine, our protagonist is lost at sea and the viewer is subjected to yet another rich, high contrast fantasy. I could watch these Woodkid videos for days. Be sure to catch “Iron” if you haven’t already.

Helado Negro – Dance Ghost

You can be surrounded by people and feel completely alone. For this man, the only thing that makes him feel connected is dancing on his own.

The Lone Bellow – Two Sides of Lonely

I first heard The Lone Bellow in these stripped-down, nearly-a capella videos. The album is a bit overproduced and Top 40 Country for my taste, but these black and white videos show the talent that’s at the band’s core.
