Ok Thursday, good to see you again, we’re back on the Video Hits grind with more clips than we can handle – is it just me, or there are way more videos being made right now that in the last couple years? Is that why Muchmusic is showing videos again? Probably, that Moses Znaimer character was always savy with the programming (can we get a T McGee comeback now?).
Anyhoo, point being, lots of great videos from Canadian artists out there right now, but we’re going to start with two from TO’s Small Sins, mainly because Thomas D’Arcy and co are playing here in Halifax at The Paragon on March 7th with Dance Movie & Billle Dre and the Poor Boys. Small Sins HPX set from ’07 remains a highlight for me to this day, so news of a return is greeted enthusiastically, plus their new record, Pot Calls Kettle Black is pretty damn good to boot. So here’s their newest vid, for Why Don’t You Believe Me?, but in looking that one up, I realized they also put one out for the album’s jammy-jam, the K-OS featuring Deja Vu. Which leads to a Video Hits first, a Boomer Two-Flow in video form, which has to be a good thing.
Hey Rosetta! has just launched their new album, which looks like it could do big things for them. I think we can all agree that this is a good thing, so let’s celebrate their future success with their new, St. John’s-celebrating video for Yer Spring. The Ack was pleasantly surprised by the results of the change in direction undertaken by MTL’s Young Galaxy for their new album Shapeshifting, so posting their animated video for We Have Everything seems like a good idea. Oh, and if you make it all the way to the bottom, there’s a video from some Canadian band with some famous people in it. Enjoy.
