A still from the video for Shenandoah Davis' "Sewn Up Tight," directed by Ian Craig Young Brown.While you were frolicking in the sun, a bunch of great local music videos came out this summer. Check them out after the jump:
12. Damien Jurado, "Museum of Flight"
Footage taken from a recent European tour backed by the best song from the great Maraqopa.
11. Witch Gardens, "Aunt Shae, Mean Colleen"
This came out in May, but it's exuberant footage of windy beaches and surprise parties merits a re-watch. Keep your eyes peeled for clubs editor Erin Thompson's dog, James!
10. Posse, "Sarah"
Old yearbook photos and illustration collide in the video for the garage-pop breakup song "Sarah."
9. Deadkill, "Oh God Help You"
And now for something a little heavier. Dark passageways, sobbing, and... hardcore? Half nightmare, half awesome.
DIRTY SIDEWALKS House II from Way Harsh Productions on Vimeo.8. Dirty Sidewalks, "House II"
The only band in Seattle who admits to liking Oasis shares a video that would fit perfectly in the '90s Brit pop scene.
Naomi Punk - Burned Body from Couple Skate on Vimeo.7. Naomi Punk, "Burned Body"
"The black-and-white, cut-up, stop-motion clip... perfectly complements the song's lurching, stop-start energy, and the relative release of the chorus," said Eric Grandy when he reviewed the video last month.
Shenandoah Davis - Sewn Up Tight from Shenandoah Davis on Vimeo.6. Shenandoah Davis, "Sewn Up Tight"
Davis channels Edith Piaf and Swan Lake in the video for "Sewn Up Tight."
Dude York - And Andrew Too from The Sounds Of Sweet Nothing on Vimeo.5. Dude York, "And Andrew, Too"
Short but sweet like the song, this video packs a colorful surprise into two minutes.
4. Blue Scholars, "Slick Watts"
Sabzi goes on a food tour of Seattle in a the new video for "Slick Watts," stopping at iconic restaurants like Dick's burgers and the Shell station on Beacon Ave for fried catfish.
3. Campfire OK, "Wishing You the Best"
A video for the first song from their upcoming full-length.
2. Kingdom Crumbs, "Evoking Spirits"
Cool animation by Israeli artist Ori Toor illustrates the experimental hip-hop group's Shabazz-esque track.
1. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, "Thrift Shop"
A tongue-in-cheek ode to the unofficial pastime of Seattle gets an equally entertaining video.
