Watch The Sweet Video For Kindness And Robyn’s “Who Do You Love”

M'awwwwww

Do you guys remember that viral video “First Kiss,” and how it turned out that yeah, the participants were strangers, but they were also actors and performers, and the video was also a clothing advertisement? I feel like this new video for “Who Do You Love” from electronic musician Kindness, featuring Robyn, is sort of karmic recompense for that.

Kindness explained the video concept for Pitchfork:

Robyn Mouths Off On How Women Are Treated In The Music Industry

“I had an idea of trying to make pop music in a way that wasn’t restricted by the structure of how the industry had shaped pop music, but it was hard to do.

It’s not politically correct any more to not be a feminist which is good, but for me, feminism is still necessary and that sucks.”

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of April 29th 2008

  • Madonna’s latest record seriously sounds as good as it is: Hard Candy. With her 11th album, my girl crush Madonna still manages to make me feel like a virgin, touched by her irresistable beat for the very first time. The sugary pop tracks, like the single “4 Minutes”, are tasty grooves, combining the dance floor dynamic of her best hits with an R&B bump and grind. Always on top, Her Madgesty enlisted an orgy of the most lickable men in music to do it with her: Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Timbaland, Danja, and Justin Timberlake.
  • Madonna’s not the only taste of female awesomeness out today: check out releases from Santogold, Portishead, Robyn, Carly Simon, and Lil’ Mama. [Pause And Play: CD Front]
