10 More Cool Animated Videos
We love music. We also love animation. So when we see an animated music video, you can bet we’re all over it. We made a list of some of our favorite animated videos a while back. But we found 10 more to keep us glued to our screens.
Cloud Nothings, ‘Stay Useless’
A little boy, an action figure and a giant monkey. Cloud Nothings’ colorful clip looks a lot like the daytime adventures we play out inside our heads every single day.
Fleet Foxes, ‘The Shrine / An Argument’
The folk rockers’ elegant, woodsy track from ‘Helplessness Blues’ gets an appropriately elegant and woodsy video complete with forest animals and a whole circle-of-life theme.
We’d expect a cartoon band to have cool animated videos, and Gorillaz never disappoint. ‘Stylo’ features and awesome mix of live action and animation. And Bruce Willis.
Los Campesinos!, ‘We Throw Parties, You Throw Knives’
These Welsh indie poppers always sound like they’re throwing a party. And in this 2007 video, bombs and body parts collide with the song’s sunny vibe.
Stephen Malkmus, ‘Jo Jo’s Jacket’
The Pavement frontman’s 2001 debut album was filled with lots of Pavement-esque moments. This ghostly clip for ‘Jo Jo’s Jacket’ jumps styles.
Moby, ‘Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?’
Cute cartoon characters romp through a song called ‘Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?’ Confusion ensues. The great song comes from Moby’s 1999 masterpiece ‘Play.’
Portishead, ‘The Rip’
This minimalist cut from the British electronic band’s third album is pretty stripped down too. All sketchy line drawings fleshed out with simple but effective animation.
Radiohead, ‘Pyramid Song’
Radiohead’s ‘Paranoid Android’ is one of our favorite animated videos. Their serene clip for the great ‘Pyramid Song’ is special too.
The Shins, ‘The Rifle’s Spiral’
We’re kinda creeped out and fascinated by the Shins’ video for ‘The Rifle’s Spiral.’ Plus, we could look at magical bunnies all day.
The Smashing Pumpkins, ‘Tonight, Tonight’
Another blend of live action and animation, the Pumpkins’ great-looking video for ‘Tonight, Tonight’ pays tribute to the same pioneering filmmaker Martin Scorsese honored in ‘Hugo.’
