WORSEBEHAVIOUR (dir. Peter Campbell)

It’s always pleasing to see a plethora of artist development in Chicago, but sometimes what is forgotten are the people who provide musical artists with a visual platform for their art. A good videographer is essentially priceless, as we’ve seen from the success of Chicago directors like Austin Vesely and Elijah Alvarado lately, but many of these directors have aspirations higher than the music videos they do so well.

Today, another of Chicago’s underground heavyweights, Peter Campbell, presents to us his first ever short film entitled WORSEBEHAVIOUR. The short, which lasts about 9 minutes, is a wild ride of a kidnapping with a bit of humor peppered in there. If you’re a fan of Chicago music, you’ll notice some notable cameos Peter has thrown in there, including a Towkio interview and a soundtrack scored by Frank Leone. Stream above. Cheers.

Glass Animals – Black Mambo

One of the best albums of 2014 (yet somehow keeping under the radar of many) was Glass Animals’ Zaba.  Reminiscent of a more thoughtful Alt-J, Glass Animals bring us “Black Mambo,” one of my favorite tracks off of Zaba.  The visuals are a trip, but I don’t know what I expected with these guys.  Either way, it’s interesting. Cheers.

Sky Ferreira – Omanko

Indie-darling Sky Ferreira has had a relatively quiet 2014.  Following the release of her debut album and an unfortunate stage accident on Miley Cyrus’ “Bangerz” tour, Sky has steadily toured and maintained a fairly low profile.  Today, however, she brings us a home-video, directed by her boyfriend (And DIIV frontman) Zachary Cole Smith.  Stream “Omanko” above.
