In case you haven't heard, our 2015 demo contest produced many illustrious winners and honorable mentions, many of which are making crazy awesome music all over the Minneapolis scene. We caught up with John Chuck & The Class at their show last weekend at the 7th Street Entry. We are very sneaky here at Humans Win! and we like to keep our sneaky eyes on our contest winners to make sure they keep on being winners.

Today's post is devoted to music in film. Also known as music videos. There's nothing worse than an artist who just wants to watch their hair blow in the wind for 3:45.

Here's a collection of videos that we think deserve some respect, including one by Humans Win!ner herself, Caroline Smith. Grab a glazed, sit back, and enjoy the next 25 minutes.
If you watched Breaking Bad or follow the current Comedy Central runaway success Broad City then you've most likely heard Ana Tijoux without even knowing it. Her single "1977" has garnered her a lot of attention here in the States in the past few years. Her album Vengo (I'm Coming) was nominated for a Grammy this year for Best Latin Alternative or Urban Album. But Tijoux has been making music in the Chilean scene now for almost two decades.
It's always a good day to find something weird on YouTube. Especially when it's a Humans Win! song that has blown up in Brazil and people are making choreographed dances to it and putting it on the inter-web.
