Video Hits:: Sweatshop Union, Dinosaur Bones, David Myles & Megan Bonnell

Sweatshop Union - The Bill Murray EPUnless I’m mistaken, we missed the Video Hits last week, but we’re back with vengeance this week: four great videos from a fairly diverse group of artists.

 

We’re leading off this version of the Video Hits with Sweatshop Union’s vid for “Makeshift Kingdom” off of their awesome Bill Murray EP. I had actually been saving this video for a future hip hop version of the video hits, two things happened: 1. It was taking too long to get a good group of hip hop vids together, and 2. To chronicle the process of recording his new record, D-Sisive launched a new tumblr site, and in celebration of that he released a new song (“Run With The Creeps (Makeshift Kingdom)”) that uses the Makeshift Kingdom beat. This reminded me of Makeshift Kingdom’s excellence, and I decided to wait no longer to get the video up. It’s another Stuey Kubrick joint, and the native vision quest steelo of the video fits the song to a T.

 

As mentioned, we’ve got a rather interesting hat-trick of videos up next. Toronto’s Dinosaur Bones break out a epic, streamer-filled game of the once-beloved, now likely taboo, Cowboys & Indians for their melodic rocker “N.Y.E.”. Is there a more a more unlikely maker of soulful & seductive love songs in this country than David Myles? I submit to you that there isn’t, but his new video for “Out Of Love” is included here as proof of exactly that. If you’re looking for proof of Dave’s excellence as a live performer, it just so happens that he has a new live album out that you might want to pick up. Rounding out the Video Hits today is a rather beautiful video from Toronto chanteuse Megan Bonnell for her dreamy single “South Korea”. This is the first I’ve heard from the recent Nevado Records signee, but I have the feeling we’ll be seeing more of Megan on the hill. Enjoy the videos!
