It's been a long week. Luckily a lot of fun music videos came out this week to help keep me from nodding off at my desk. (Like did you see this video for "Good Kisser"? It is very nice and features Fo, my favorite ANTM girl. Also, a very special Jesse McCartney video came out this week, so if you are into garbage pop like me, you don't want to miss this one, I'll tell you what.) Check out my other favorite vids and tunes from this week below! —Katie
Leverage Models "Night Falls on the General Assembly"
Our pals Leverage Models put out a new video this week for "Night Falls on the General Assembly" and I sure do like it. Makes me want to dance all over town in a suit, TBH. Plus, the VHS vibe it's got going on matches perfectly with the song. The band will also be playing at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn on May 22, so if you're in the area and in the mood for some dancing, check 'em out!
I love this song so much and now I love this video so much. I will never get over how Maddie from Dance Moms is only 11 years old and more talented than I will ever be in my entire life. SIGH.
Arctic Monkeys "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards"
Alex Turner covered Tame Impala's "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" and now I am sad. Marry me, Alex.
Making Time with Boys Noize
If you're in Philly this weekend, make sure to head out to the latest Making Time party at Voyeur on Saturday, May 10. The special guest of the evening will be Boys Noize, which means between him and Making Time mainstays Dave P. and Sammy Slice, you'll be guaranteed good grooves to dance to.
Lipgloss Twins "Wannabe"
Want to hear a weird song? Click play on the link above. Against my better judgment, I actually like all these weird electronic pop/techno songs that are popping up (like "Attachment"). And this website for the Lipgloss Twins is really speaking to me on a deep emotional level. (via Stereogum)
