VOTD: Little Dragon - ‘Klapp Klapp’

Somewhere between Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead lives Little Dragon’s new video for “Klapp Klapp”. In it, we follow the journey of one mysterious voodoo woman in her quest through pillars of pink flame and zombies to perform a dark ritual that will resurrect her dead lover. 

That may seem like a lot for a 3 and half minute Little Dragon song, but the band pulls it off. “Klapp Klapp” retains a pitch black ambiance with its haunting synth/bass line and drives home its femme fatale calypso lyrics with a constant snare hit, all of which complements the anti-heroine’s sense of post-apocalyptic desperation. It turns out even dancey electronic jazz tracks have dark sides.

And now we know Little Dragon is responsible for the end of the world. Solid.

VOTD: Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings - ‘Stranger To My Happiness’

If you need an inspiring start to 2014, look no further than the Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings video for “Stranger to My Happiness”, an unbelievably upbeat and funky Stax throwback. Don’t you think for a second that Jones would let bile duct cancer beat her in any way – the song is a triumphant return from such a daunting foe. The video has Jones and the Kings singing of relationship baggage at the remains of a wedding reception (they also help themselves to some leftover cake… can’t blame ‘em). Let this song serve as a lesson about overcoming adversity, because hot damn, is it great to see these folks back on a stage.
