Incredibly, 2013 is almost over – and while the year might have sped by like a freight train, that hasn’t stopped the BAMM.tv 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, BAMM.tv 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.
