mohazimaRoxwel ran into New York music video director Moh Azima at Shy Child\'s SXSW showcase. We were fired up to meet the guy who directed Chromeo\'s \'Rage\' - one of our favorites. The rest ain\'t bad either. Towers of London and The Hold Steady spots in particular. Moh\'s tense short film, \'Trapped In Freedom\' is also included to complete the collection.

Run Home

A dude on the run finds no help when he comes across Canadian rockers, Priestess, in the woods. Their heavy retro-metal sound and rack of high beam lights force him to go back where he came from.

French Kiss
Moh Azima

Brooklyn based band with Minneapolis roots likes confusing us with lines like,'My Name Is Rick Danko and people call me One Hour Photo.' Did people really call Danko that? Totally cool video starts off strong with motion similar that of the White Stripes 'Seven Nation Army' video.

How Rude She Was

Moh Azima

Lead Donny Tourlette ended up in a Cambridge court after swinging from an overhead cable at a show and pulling down a canopy that broke scaffolding. That type of punk energy is not missing from this in-your-face video featuring a bunch of rude rollergirls.

Calling

Moh Azima

Michigan Nu-Metal band, Taproot, gained success touring with KoRn and Linkin Park. The 'Calling' was the official song of wrestling's WWE's Unforgiven in 2005. Watch until the end of the video and see how the line'I Don't See You Anymore' rings true - think 'Twilight Zone - The Movie.'

Calla's pristine harmonies and rhythmic sounds are why the Alternative Press picked em as 'the number one wand to watch.' The video has the band playing among endless rows of concrete structures.
