Are you staring wistfully out of your office window, wondering when the clouds are going to burn off to let the sun take over for another glorious spring day? You're not alone. But, your friends here at Local Cut are here to help; help with some better stuff to ogle instead of the frustratingly overcast skies.
Start with a new clip by the first hip-hop artist signed to Amigo/Amiga Records, Tope. The video looks as if it were edited on a pair of VCRs, providing a nice counterbalance to this young rapper's boasting and cheeky wordplay.
The dance pop quartet My Body have also found one of their songs animated in video form. In this case, the song is a sultry jam called "New Cat" and the animating appears to have been done on a vintage Amiga home computer.
We close out this edition of the Video Roundup with a new clip by singer-songwriter Anya Marina. A very on-the-nose video filmed at (I believe) the Mt. Scott Community Center skating rink, with a young man pining over a young lady who is skating with another dude. As sickly sweet as Marina's feathery vocals and just as likely to induce tooth decay.
