Directors Greg&Lio shot this video for French musician OrelSan, which features a seemingly endless cast of characters for the rapper to march through. The smooth tracking shot was captured using an expertly piloted drone. The subtitled version has a little bonus at the end.
He’s turning into a creepy uncle, but nothing can change the fact that Billy Corgan and The Smashing Pumpkins helped define alternative rock. He recently dropped by NPR Music’s office to perform Tonight, Tonight and two songs from his new solo album, Ogilala.
13 year-old Owen Davey is a master of not just one instrument, but can rock lead guitar, bass, and drums with the best of them. Here, he performs all of the parts from Metallica’s classic Master of Puppets like a badass. His cover of YYZ by Rush is solid too.

Hello Gotham, my old friend… How It Should Have Ended takes a break from fixing movie endings to bring us a little song – a parody of the 1964 classic The Sound of Silence, with Batman taking on vocal duties. If Batman is Simon, then Robin must be Garfunkel, right?

One of our favorite musical finds of the last few years has to be Kawehi, with her wonderful sense of rhythm, buttery-smooth voice, and joie de vivre, the one-woman band is a real star. Here, she performs two tracks from another great artist, Björk – Joga and Army of Me.
