The Top Ten Kansas City Music Videos of 2012
1. SSION- "Earthquake"
Mac Lethal and Strange Music aren't the only Kansas City-affiliated entities making worthwhile music videos. One of several brilliant Cody Critcheloe efforts tops the list of my ten favorite entries of 2012.
2. Krizz Kaliko- "Hello Walls"
The sensitive side of Strange Music.
3. thePhantom*- "Say You Love Me"
4. Diverse- "Ni**as in Paris"
Small budget humor.
5. Ces Cru- "Colosseum"
Big budget humor.
6. Making Movies- "Hangover Blues"
Spot your favorite musician.
7. Steddy P- "Local Heroes"
"Love in the hometown."
8. Conflicts- "Nuketown"
Conflicts may be KC's best rock band.
9. AJ Young- "How Do You Deal"
Why isn't this guy a star?
10. Mac Lethal- "You're vs. Your"
Mac Lethal has mastered the medium.
Worthy videos by Ebony Tusks, Empty Spaces and Adam Lee & the Dead Horse Company were disqualified from consideration for being too cool for YouTube. XV (316), Stik Figa (785) and Krystle Warren (+33) were disqualified because of their area codes. (I made an exception for SSION.)
I conducted similar exercises in 2011 and 2010.
