25 Of Our Favorite Music Videos: October 2018

In honor of All Hallow’s Eve, this month’s slate of videos feature some intense, and not so intense, themes.  The artists are conveying a message through the video itself in conjunction with the song as opposed to the artist just playing their tune on camera (not that there’s anything wrong with that).  For example, DeVotchKa, in their video for “Straight Shot” put on display all their influences with frontman Nick Urata performing on a stage with a masked audience in some amazing vaudeville imagery.  All of this  comes together to tell the story of the song.  In Urata’s own words, “This song is like a moonlit swim through heartbreak, in a sea of ghosts from your past….”  Enjoy!
