In this age of YouTube, music videos — in the classic sense (think Duran Duran, Whitesnake) — are a rarity. Today’s videos are either highly edited live clips, iPhone videos or trailers akin to the previews that you pay to sit through for 15 minutes before the latest feature film begins.
Thank goodness the Motel Beds (@motelbeds) grew up during MTV’s Alternative Nation days when videos were churned out with regularity and often epitomized the essence of the band.
The band recently released a video for “Valentimes” from their 2012 Vinyl Worthy release, Dumb Gold.
“Sabotage” by the Beastie Boys may be the best video ever; “Valentimes” should claim the “Best Video of 2013” honor, warranting a place amongst the greats of past generations. God bless the Motel Beds.
