Video Roundup: Dillon Francis/Diplo, Givers & More

Published on July 2nd, 2011

A bunch of new videos premiered this week, so although I only have a couple of minutes I thought I’d share a few. The first is by far the most bizarre of this roundup, the video for the Dillon Francis and Diplo collab “Que Que” featuring Maluca. Aside from Maluca’s intimidatingly long fingernails and fierce vocals, it features insane visualizer backdrops and hype kids. It’s crazy but the hot moombahton track pulls it off well.

Philly duo Work Drugs‘ brand of lo-fi indie-rock is absolutely perfect for summer, and this video is a pleasantly chill watch as well. If you dig it, they’re playing tomorrow night (July 3rd) at Johnny Brenda’s as part of The Roots’ Fourth of July Jam.

Next up is one of the best videos I’ve seen in a while, for Givers‘ “Up Up Up” off their recent debut In Light. The video depicts city and space scenes on what seems like a perfect mushrooms trip, and the super upbeat song only further reinforces the euphoric feel.

Finally, I’m posting this a bit late, but here’s the epic first-ever video from Explosions In The Sky. Just watch it. It’s everything you’d expect from an Explosions video; hopefully we won’t have to wait another 12 years to see the next one. The group (who were one of the absolute best of Bonnaroo) will be playing the Tower Theatre on October 2nd with The Antlers.
