Thursday's Video Selections
Chew Lips - "Karen"
First up, the newest music video from London's own electro-pop act, Chew Lips. Their debut record, Unicorn, dropped on January 25 in the UK and was produced by Dave Kosten (Bat for Lashes). The chilled-out yet, forward moving, beat-driven tune above "Karen: will put you in a the right mind set for a Thursday work day. Check them out as they come to Brooklyn's "Littlefield" on April. 12
Phantogram - "Mouthful of Diamonds"
[MP3] Phantogram - "When I'm Small"
The above video appeared exclusively on Pitchfork yesterday -- "Mouthful of Diamonds" sounds like a more pop-focused XX track: easy on the ears, and front-woman Sarah Barthel, is definitely easy on the eyes. Hailing from the unlikely city of Saratoga Springs, Phantogram have been turning heads with their debut LP Eyelid Movies, which dropped on Barsuk Records earlier in the year.
Phantogram heads out on tour this spring with The Antlers -- tour dates after the jump.
