My favorite music videos online

I really appreciate the democratization of video that sites like Youtube and Vimeo mean. An un-established artist can reach audiences of thousands (if the material is good enough) and I can sit in Sweden and find that artist with just a click of my mouse. I usually browse those sites, especially Vimeo, a couple of times a week and to me it’s a great way of finding inspiration or just refueling with creative energy.

In this blog I will post my favorite videos that I find online, it will mainly music videos but sometimes other videos as well. It will always be videos that I find impressing, what’s impressing to me could be the overall impression, the production quality, the post-production, the storytelling and the acting or just the music and or sound.

First up are two music videos and I really encourage you to support the artists involved if you like what you see. And if you can spare the bandwidth you should check the videos out at the actual Vimeo site so you can enjoy the HD quality option.

I will try not talk too much about why I like the videos and hence give you a chance to form your own opinion. I always look for videos that speak to me in different ways, and often rather unobvious ways. At least that’s what I like to think.
