Kelela - Blue Light
although i've hardened
darling, my guard is down
when i know you're around
only one that fit the crown

when i need love i run to you
you're the only one i want, want you now
silly shit we go through
cop my keys and i'm out

i'm on my way right now
promise i won't be long
baby, keep the blue light on
chains they come fallin down

i'm begging your pardon
told myself i needed time
but my discipline is slippin
head first
with your love around
i could save the world
for better now
i want you where you are right now

oh, i'm on my way right now
promise i won't be long
baby keep the blue light on
chains they come fallin down
my chains they come fallin down
my chains they come fallin down

gold in the offering
darling my guard is down
when i know you're around
only one that fit the crown


Kimbra - Everybody Knows (Apothek Rework)

X-Music-TV, Apothek Rework, Kimbra, Everybody Knows, The-Indies-Network,

X Music TV is proud to present the second version of Kimbra's music video to her song titled Everybody Knows, which is track #3 on Kimbra's album titled Primal Heart, released on 4/20, 2018.

We featured the original music video to this song on MusicLoad (link down below). This version was produced to a reworked music verson of the song known as the Everybody Knows (Apothek Rework).

This video below is a bit more edge-of-your-seat and controversial than the original version because it contains a dramatization of domestic violence in the video that may be difficult for many viewers. Kimbra wrote a note about the video in her own words, featured below.

The actors in the video are Liza Tzschirner and David Paryla.

I’ve been a big fan of Apothek for a while.
I asked if they would choose a song of mine to rework.
They chose Everybody Knows & sent back their version. I was totally blown away by the way they took the song to a whole new place emotionally. It evoked new depth in the lyrics and had this hypnotizing patience to it with a quiet kind of violence and also a soft, strange intimacy. I felt like I was hearing the song & its meaning (even to myself) in a whole new way.
On making the rework, Nils (of Apothek) said to me, ‘Everybody Knows' has this extremely powerful chorus and it could easily be a much louder experience in a busier soundscape but I really enjoyed putting this song in a mellow and contemplative
environment full of acoustic warped sounds where it could take as much or as little space as it needed.
Sometimes it feels soulful, warm and free - other times it feels a bit wound up and expressive. I like that duality.’
I felt so moved by the rework that I sent it to my friend Chester Travis (director of the video for 'Goldmine') to see if he would make a visual accompaniment for the song. We both felt this song was open to so many different interpretations but definitely agreed that the song speaks to oppression, and we wanted to show another side of that and have it represented by an entirely different video.
This evokes heavy emotions and it’s not always easy to speak openly about the ways we experience oppression in our lives but I’m thankful that art is a way for us to see things anew, and it also grants us the freedom of individual interpretation.

My friend Chester put this song in a stark domestic light that gave my lyrics an eerily poignant and even disturbing angle. But I think it’s important we use music to give us new (sometimes challenging) perspectives, thanks to the eyes that have courage to capture what we can’t always see so quickly for ourselves. Thank you also to Safe Horizon for getting behind this in a way that can actually impact real life.
I welcome you to view this song now through the lens of my 2 very talented friends, Apothek & Chester Travis.

Official Lyrics to Everybody Knows by Kimbra
money moans
calls you home
vacant eyes
they won’t tell a soul
you fooled me once
now I’m twice as old

see I ain’t gonna lie
but I ain’t gonna phone you
no I ain’t gonna try
to forget what I’ve gone through

got a little box, yeah
that I’m gonna open
take your promises
cause they’ve all been broken

everybody knows about what you do
everybody saw and sold the truth
I was young and gullible
but baby I grew
and now the whole worlds watching you

hands to the bone
hands to the heart
bodies alone
they hide in the dark
but is it a fight
worth fighting?

see I ain’t gonna lie
but I ain’t gonna hold back
or try to deny
you turned a damn good heart black

got a little box yeah
that I’m gonna take back
don’t make your promises
cos I’m finished with all that

everybody knows about what you do
everybody saw and sold the truth
I was young and gullible
but baby I grew
and now the whole worlds watching you

The band featured below is from Alaska and they are known as Portugal. The Man.

The music video featured is to their song titled The Dead Dog which was track #1 on the the bands 5th studio album titled American Ghetto, originally released in March 2010.

There were no dogs and no death in this presentation, but there is gangsterism, thievery, dancing, money and breaking & entering. Those depictions in the video were done by actors, not role models. Do not try to do this in real life, except for maybe the dancing part.

X Music TV presents Rihanna and her music video for the song Bitch Better Have My Money

This is a combination music video and a short gangster film, complete with kidnapping and torture in pursuit of money. It's got a revenge plot from the playbook of the HBO hit, The Sopranos. It was directed by Rihanna and Megaforce.

The rumor is that at one point, in real life, one of Rihanna's previous business managers failed to live up to his obligations to protect her interests. This video is her reminder to all future business managers to do no wrong.

Die Antwoord - (X Music TV's inaugural post)

X Music TV presents music videos by Die Antwoord

This is the very first ever post to X Music TV on August 13, 2017.

X Music TV is proud to present the visionary music and film making act known as Die Antwoord. The unconventional group is a couple (unmarried) from South Africa. Although they are considered by most people to be in the music business, they are the cream of the crop in the horror movie business too.

The girl is Yolandi. Her full name is Yolandi Visser, often shown as ¥o-landi Vi$$er. Her male counterpart, whose real name is Watkin Tudor Jones, uses Ninja as his stage name.

Their daughter, who goes by her real name, Sixteen Jones, has appeared in Die Antwoord music videos since a very young age and has gone on to achieve musical and modeling success of her own.

This act is unique, creative and genius on so many levels that they defy description, so we won't attempt that.

The first selection below is not as much of a music video as much as it is a short film, which is rare but not uncommon for the group, who has at least one other great short where they play characters in wheelchairs.

This one below was directed by ¥o-landi Vi$$er. Sixteen Jones (a girl in real life) does a great job playing a boy named "Lil Tommy", with Jack Black playing "Big Tommy".

The art director for this short was photographer Roger Ballen, who is a great part of the genius behind this and other cinematic and photographic work for Die Antwoord that he has participated in.

The next video is for the song called Love Drug that goes with the image at the top of this post. It's their most recent full blown music video for the summer of 2017.

Die Antwoord - Love Drug

This next video to their song titled Ugly Boy is another excellent one, with many cameos including Flea, Marilyn Manson, Dita Von Teese and many others.

Die Antwoord - Ugly Boy

The next two videos are to a pumping song that the group released in 2012 called I Fink U Freaky. The first version is the promo or trailer. The first image is of Sixteen Jones when she was still a single digit. And, Yolandi is the one who eats the beating heart.

Here is their music pumping to one of their horror movie style videos. If you like blood and gore style horror movies, you will love this.

Die Antwoord - Pitbull Terrier

The next video is a political/religious/philosophical song about circumcision of young boys in South Africa.

Die Antwoord - Evil Boy

This next video is one of Die Antwoord's earlier videos when they were going "next level, worldwide".
