The 21 Best Videos of 2015


No one cares about your label’s video budget in 2015. The music vids that we found most moving and memorable this year were, in most cases, simple (with a few glossy and/or cinematic exceptions), powerful, often self-directed visual interpretations of our favorite songs. Also featuring one brilliant video made of found footage that seems to have been effectively scrubbed from the internet forever. Here are our favorite music videos of the year:

21 CHARLI XCX | Famous (director: Eric Wareheim)

20 FREDDIE GIBBS | Fuckin’ Up The Count (director: Jonah Schwartz)

19 ALLIE X | Catch (director: Jérémie Saindon)

18 PRINCE INNOCENCE | I Don’t Care (director: Chris Levett)

17 GRIMES | Flesh Without Blood (director: Grimes)

16 DJDS | You Don’t Have to Be Alone (directors: Daniel Pappas and Nick Walker)

15 HINDS | Garden (director: Pedro Martin-Calero)

14 TOPS | Outside (interactive) (director: Fantavious Fritz)

13 A$AP ROCKY | L$D (directors: Dexter Navy + A$AP Rocky)

12 QT | Hey QT (directors: Bradley & Pablo)

11 STEALING SHEEP | Not Real (live) (director: Ben Morgan)

10 AUTRE NE VEUT | World War Pt. 2 (director: Allie Avital)

09 FKA TWIGS | M3LL155X (director: FKA twigs)

08 ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER | Sticky Drama (directors: Jon Rafman + Daniel Lopatin)

07 M.I.A. | Borders (director: M.I.A.)

06 SHE-DEVILS | Come (director: She-Devils)

05 SHABAZZ PALACES | Forerunner Foray (director: Chad VanGaalen)

04 KENDRICK LAMAR | Alright (director: Colin Tilley)

03 BULLY | I Remember (director: Stewart Copeland)

02 J DILLA | Donuts (unofficial video)


This incredible, surprisingly touching, 44-minute Donuts tribute, made up of rare found footage and ephemera relating to the original sample sources from Dilla’s 2006 masterpiece, vanished so quickly after it first appeared on the internet back in January that there’s a small chance I just imagined the whole thing. I’m pretty sure it actually existed though, so let us know if you’re holding and we’ll re-post it here.

01 GRIMES | REALiTi (director: Grimes)
