Redhead – Baggage video

DMV rapper Stephen Redhead just released a new music video for his track Baggage, from last year’s FREE mixtape The Schemata. This video, directed by Rogue Films, is quite unlike most other hip-hop videos from DC, and I’m not mad at all about that. This is one beautiful and creepy video. Pick up his latest single Talk White feat. Malik-16 on iTunes.


Drew Gibson – I Know I Miss You More video

There are lots of great local shows to take in this weekend, but if you are in the mood for some fantastic roots rock then head to Iota in Arlington for Wes Tucker‘s album release party with his band The Skillets. I’ve heard the album and it’s a solid and catchy listen. Get there early to check out fellow locals The Reserves and Drew Gibson. A few months ago Drew released a music video for his song I Know I Miss You More, from his second album The Southern Draw. The whole video was shot on an iPhone, but it works well with the song.


The Beanstalk Library – Feeling My Way In The Dark video

Alt-country rockers The Beanstalk Library tapped Hurst Street Productions to collaborate on a music video for the 48 Hour Film Project‘s contest in DC. The video for Feeling My Way In The Dark got a screening at the prestigous AFI Silver theater in Silver Spring, and has now made its way online for everyone to enjoy. The song and its b-side, the excellent track The Only Things I’ll Take With Me, are yours for the taking at their Bandcamp page.


Edie Sedgwick – He’s The One video

DC music vet Justin Moyer and his band Edie Sedgwick are set to release their new album We Wear White on Dischord Records on November 20th. Today they premiered the first music video from the album, He’s The One, over on Magnet Magazine‘s website. Edie Sedgwick’s live shows are raucous and always entertaining, and now we know which of them can swat some ping pong balls around properly.

Devils Walk As Saints – Blood Orange video

Local rock band Devils Walk As Saints are building a local fan base the old fashioned way, by playing lots of shows all over town. They recorded their FREE self titled debut EP last year at Inner Ear Studios, and recently released a music video for Blood Orange. Pretty awesome band name too, don’t you think?


Honor By August – Somebody Real video

DC modern rock band Honor By August has been quiet since 2010, but their fans hotly anticipate 2013’s upcoming full length release Monuments To Progress. The band recently shot a bit of an epic music video for the first single from the album, Somebody’s Real. You can catch them live next when their album drops in January at the Howard Theater.

Bonus: Here’s the funny Youtube video everyone’s linking to today, answering the simple question Why Doesn’t MTV Play Music Videos Anymore? The answer might make you feel pretty shitty about music and life, but we hope all the music videos on our website will soothe your heart.


Tabi Bonney – Top Notch Material Girls video

Slick videos from DMV rapper Tabi Bonney usually involve an abundance of beautiful women, and today’s video Top Notch Material Girls does not disappoint. This video, from last year’s album The Summer Years, indulges Bonney’s love for fashion with designs from Julian Pierre.


Dance For The Dying – Mannequin video

The red hot synthpop band Dance For The Dying yesterday released a brand new music video for Mannequin, the lead off single from their recent EP Puzzles for the Traveler, on the website PureVolume. It’s a slick video, clearly inspired by singer MC Wolfe’s eye-catching fashion choices onstage. This is a band devoted to fashion and fun, refreshingly standing out in the DC music landscape of angular indie rock, street level hip hop and experimental noise.

Dance For The Dying – Mannequin


Madia – Runaway LoveHer video

Neo soul songstress Madia, veteran of Justin Trawick‘s We Are The 9 Singer-Songwriter showcase, recently released her debut music video. The track Runaway LoveHer comes from her third full length album Go Get It, released earlier this year. After a late and raucous night last night, I think we can all use a little mellow soul music from this talented singer.
