Classroom Battles -- "Cross-Eyed Horse"

Irish-French indie poppers address the subject perseverance in “Cross-Eyed Horse.” It’s exhausting just thinking about how many takes the actor must have done to complete the video. Pass the Gatorade.

Vaadat Charigim -- "Ze Beseder Lefahed"

Vaadat Charigim “Ze Beseder Lefahed” feels like a cross between The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven” and The Jesus and Mary Chain’s “Just Like Honey.” Due to the language barrier, we’re not sure if the song’s about heavenly honey or not, but the video clearly...

Ulises Hadjis — “Diciembre”

Sometimes you just have to let music speak for itself, especially when it’s as lovely as Ulises Hadjis’ “Diciembre.” A big budget video with digital effects would distract from watching the simple joy of Ulises hanging out with his friends on a grassy...

M.anifest — “Over and Under”

Make way for a classic recession rap. No “Mo Money Mo Problems” for M.anifest. He’s all about real talk in “Over and Under.” It’s hard out there, even for a well-known Ghanaian rap star, and there are a lot of people out there who can certainly...

Eatliz — “Miserable”

“Miserable” by Tel Aviv-based band Eatliz sounds like it should be filed under alt-rock instead of indie rock, although those distinctions are pretty arbitrary. The video is abstract, but a brief glimpse of a little girl makes it seem like there might...
