Video Hits:: Shad, Rah Rah, Make Your Exit

Shad

In case you didn’t hear, Shad didn’t win the Polaris. That recently announced honour went to Montreal’s Karkwa and since The Ack is the Polaris affiliated fellow here at the hill, I’m not even going to pretend I’ve heard Karkwa’s album, but I think it’s a shame Shad didn’t win because TSOL is excellent and has done pretty much everything you’d think a hip hop album should do in order to win such a prize.

 

Oh well, nothing we can do about that, but it is Thursday and that means videos here at the hill and we can console ourselves with the awesomeness of Shad’s video for We, Myself & I. It’s essentially a performance vid, with Shad doing the song in various computer-freaked locations, but it matches the song really well and is rather hypnotic. However, if you like a little more plot in your clips - specifically, a “girl meets werewolf” type of narrative - the new video from Regina’s Rah Rah for Henry should be right up your alley. A catchy tune and a werewolf tearing apart a heart-shaped pinata with his bear hands, errr claws. What more could you ask for? Well I might have asked for some Teenwolf-esque wolf-hoops to be worked in somehow, but that seems a little greedy really.

 

We’ll finish up with something a little more subdued, the video for Make Your Exit’s Leave This Town, which features a junkstrument version of the band playing the song before the actual band comes on to wrap things up - it’s a fun little video. More than anything though, it made me search for the band’s EP on the ole iTunes though, as I remembered enjoying this song a great deal. So there you go, three solid vids for your Thursday. Enjoy.
