Magnificent seven

A pile of music-related videos, plus tornadoes

It was a big week for music-related videos. Here’s a stack that will keep you busy for a good while.

Here’s NMF Main Stage band Foot Patrol’s muddy, skanky, marginally NSFW clip about their new dance, “The Mudslide.” If this inspires your groove, well, your Saturday just got better.



Heard about The Flaming Lips’ gummy-skull-music-release method? Well, here’s Wayne Coyne dropping the very first edibles off for sale at Guestroom Records (via Delo Creative). Woo-hoo!



The members of Verden, Okla.’s Southern rockers Anti-Mortem have tons of hair to headbang, and they put it to good use here.



Directors Lamar + Nik get creative with melting and growing ice sculptures in this fascinating clip for chillwave/not-chillwave tune “Reds” by Houses.



Ruby Coast (RIYL: Tokyo Police Club) dropped this gorgeous video for “Made to Change” that includes synchronized ice skating, geese and snowy landscapes.

SXSW fave Braids gets a mini-documentary, complete with interviews and four uninterrupted performances. It is pretty remarkable.  

And for you tornado junkies out there, here’s terrifying video of some massive, deadly twisters that ripped through Alabama yesterday. —Stephen Carradini

To be an Oklahoman


Commentary

Nicole Hill
Do you know what it takes to be an Oklahoman? You probably don’t, because to be an Oklahoman is to be balls-to-the-wall crazy.

Moore will be more

Dispatches from the May 20 tornado reveal the character of a community


News

Tim Farley, Louis Fowler, Peter Wright and Phil Bacharach
The afternoon of May 20, on a neighborhood street west of the Moore Medical Center, the Stephens family — Greg, Lynda and 19-year-old daughter Deanna — prepared to take shelter from the tornado. They headed into an underground storm shelter in their backyard, joined by their two dogs and two next-door neighbors.
