Okay then--- Some, if maybe half, of the sensational videos that were released by Michigan-based talent.
At a time when the Facebooks and Twitters of the world have palpably wobbled our attention spans, music videos have re-risen, not just as creative outlets for bands, cinematographers and directors (not to mention enthusiastic extras), but also as a means for bands to get their songs out there, into the ominous, quaking Internet ether...It's disconcerting that the music generation coming up, out of their teens and into their 20's, now, are more attuned to a musical-intake alike to a stick of chewing gum, just streaming something once or twice and moving on... I don't know where we're headed, if that continues to be the case, but I do know that some exceptional videos were produced this year, here, in and around the city and throughout the state, by our homegrown talent.

A video is always twice as enticing as a bandcamp-stream, after all - Zap our eyes with imagery, local artists... Dazzle us, and we're sure to keep that song you wrote stuck in our heads for the rest of the day, after the embedded clip refreshes.
