Best Of 2013 – Jeff LaPenna, Media Director

Posted on: No Comments

Incredibly, 2013 is almost over – and while the year might have sped by like a freight train, that hasn’t stopped the team from amassing some favorite musical moments from the last twelve months. Oh – and we’re not sticking to that boring old ‘Albums Of The Year’ format that a billion zillion other outlets like to recycle. Instead, our team have chosen a category close to their hearts/talents/creative outlook.

To kick things off, Media Director Jeff LaPenna has compiled his favorite Special Effects Music Videos of 2013. Here’s the list …

1. Beyoncé – “Grown Woman”

Her surprise new album was a late entry for ‘Musical Surprise Of 2013′ – but that’s not the list we’re dealing with here. ‘Grown Woman’ fuses nostalgia, retro video effects and psychedilic verve with typical Beyonce power:

2. Baby Alpaca – “Wild Child”

Get your dune buggies at the ready – this very special promo fuses sun, sand and surrealism in a hazy desert glow.

3. Bonobo – “Cirrus”

It’s all a case of history repeating. And warping. And melding. And fusing. And … oh, look, just watch the video.

4. Darwin Deez – “You Can’t Be My Girl”

Hilarious and subversive – you may not be able to be his girl, but you’ll be impressed by his video nonetheless.

5. Shugo Tokumaru – “Katachi”

Japan’s phenomenal Shugo Tokumaru has a great track record with animated videos – and it’s one he seemed keen to continue in 2013.
