Video Clip of The Week: Super Whatevr, “Telelelevision”


Top Ten Things I Like About This Weeks’ Video Clip, “Telelelevision” By Super Whatevr

1. Superwhatevr are a band from Orange County, California, which is where I am also from. Represent.

2. This song is called “Telelelevision,” and watching Television is in my top three favorite things that I like to do! Yay!

3. On weekend mornings, we should get to watch cartoons, right? This clip is animated, so that’s like a cartoon. Win Close enough!

4. Musically, “Telelelevision” sounds like it could be a lost Pixies‘ song. I like The Pixies.

5. Also, back in the ’90s there was a one-hit wonder, post-Grunge band from California called The Flys, formed by a couple of brothers who were most famous for making sunglasses and surfing. I am pretty sure I interviewed them at one point. Anyway, their hit was called “Got You Where I want You,” and “Telelelevision” sort of reminds me of that song.

6. Pink is my favorite color, and this video features lots of pink, and various shades of pink, so I enjoy watching it, as it pleases my eyeballs.

7. The video was animated by Eat The Danger, who has done the videos for “Lisbon” by Wolf Alice and Courtney Barnett’s “Dead Fox.”

8. The fluid nature of the animation makes the video especially optimal for watching while you are high on any kind of even mildly psychedelic drug.

9. I like the part where the protagonist rides a big Rubber Duck.

10. “Telelelevision” can be found on Superwhatevr’s debut full-length, Never Nothing, out now via Hopeless Records. Enjoy!

Video Clip of The Week: Milk Teeth, “No Fun”



UK-based rock quartet Milk Teeth embrace a ferociously energetic Retro Grunge sound coupled with a Modern Metal edge and an adhesive melodicism throughout. And if that description doesn’t pique your interest, you may be dead between the ears. Who can say. Comparisons to Nirvana (which we also saw in this spot just last week) are unavoidable, but there are way worse things a new band could be guilty of than inspiring enthusiastic comparisons to one of the most important and influential bands of the last 25 years. So any haters out here need to shut the fuck up.

A trade off of Melodic vs Aggressive vocal interplay between bassist Becky and guitarist Josh is a compelling highlight of this great clip, which mixes various scenes of the band’s wildly kinetic live shows with snippets of on-tour hang out activities, such as going to the zoo or hula-hooping back stage. Not only do they look like they are amazing live, but they also seem like they would be cool guys to hang out with. Win Win!

Milk Teeth released its latest EP, Sad Sack, earlier this year via Hopeless Records. I can’t imagine that it isn’t excellent. Like them on the FaceBook at This Link Enjoy!
