Friday Five: Sean Anonymous, Soundset recap, and more new Minnesota music videos

Sean Anonymous via Facebook

Sean Anonymous, “Invisible Ink”

Sean Anonymous dropped a surprise video this week, making killer song “Invisible Ink” feel even more confessional with black-and-white close-ups galore. Nicholas Perez directs, and Dimitry Killstorm is on the beat.

Recap of Soundset 2016

The verses have been rapped, the blogs have been written, and the recap has been released; this video closes the book on Soundset 2016. Featuring dozens of artists who graced the stages (plus crowd footage, a hungry deM atlaS, and Prof in a lake raft), it serves as a great homage to this year’s Soundset experience.

DEATHDANCE, “Pick Up Your Life”

DEATHDANCE, one of multi-instrumentalist Gus Watkins’s several active bands, implore you to both “Pick Up Your Life” and “help me” in this black-and-white creeper of a music video. Catch their album release show at Gamut Gallery on Saturday.

Go Get ‘Em Tiger, “Kicks On The Wire”

Go Get ‘Em, Tiger have quite the adventure in this new video. The Mary Jane Watson-christened band finds themselves at a cosmic dollhouse party — like if The Lego Movie went to college. For fans of Tame Impala and/or children’s toys.

Red Daughters, “Blue Dreams”

This song boasts all the colors — in both its description and its music video. Directed by Joe Clark, the video shows Red Daughters playing their languorous “Blue Dreams” and trying to charm a mannequin from the Icehouse stage. Keep a lookout for more plastic figures at their vinyl release show tonight at the Uptown VFW.
