Foo Fighters: Run

Foo Fighters: Run
$1.29  Buy Link Comment

Dave Grohl directed the bipolar music video for Foo Fighters’ latest track – a clip which stars the members of the band rocking a retirement home, aged to look how they’ll look if they keep performing for another 30 years or so. We love the Thriller-esque choreography at the end.

Kool Keith x MF Doom: SuperHero

Kool Keith x MF Doom: SuperHero

(Flashing images) “JVC is nice; I’ve been around Japan; It’s electronic, calls me Viktor; High on the scales, off the Richter.” Director Kris Merc’s dope visual feast is the perfect complement to hip hop legends Kool Keith and MF Doom’s track about a rapper with super powers.

Isaiah’s Dizzying Videos

Isaiah’s Dizzying Videos

(PG-13: Language) Isaiah Howard (@isaiahxavier10) uses the smartphone app musical.ly to create totally trippy selfie music videos, which feature fast camera movements, and rapid edits which are at once completely disorienting and hypnotic.

The White Stripes & Michel Gondry

The White Stripes & Michel Gondry

Film Radar digs into the techniques that director Michel Gondry used to create The White Stripes‘ most classic videos. Gondry’s sense of whimsy and effective use of simple visual effects were the perfect accompaniment to Jack and Meg’s reductive sound. (Thanks Daniel!)

Millington: Being

Millington: Being

(Gross) It’s an age old story of a girl falling in love with her one true soulmate – except in this case, her significant other just happens to be creepy alien creature. Oh Yeah Wow’s video for Millington’s jangly love song starts out silly, and ends like a horror film.

Go Up

Go Up

(PG-13) Cassius, Cat Power, and Pharell Williams collaborated on this awesome dance track which we missed when the album Ibifornia dropped last Summer. Director Alex Courtès‘ literally cheeky music video works wonders with the best use of split-screen ever.

Walk Away

Walk Away

David Ariew, Derrick Borte, and Michael Marquat of A Bad Think collaborated on this haunting music video about an astronaut’s journey through the cosmos. The song reminds us more than a little bit of Pink Floyd, and we mean that as the highest of compliments.

Leningrad: Kolschik

Leningrad: Kolschik

(PG-13: Gore) Since we don’t speak Russian, we don’t understand what the song is about, but the sheer insanity of the events that play out make this one of the wildest music videos we’ve seen. The clip was directed by Ilya Naishuller (Hardcore Henry and The Stampede)

Bonobo: No Reason

Bonobo: No Reason

Reminiscent of the best in-camera visual trickery of the mighty Michel Gondry, director Oscar Hudson’s incredible music video for Bonobo and Nick Murphy’s chillwave track was created using forced perspectives with “a very small camera… and a very big set.”

David Bowie: No Plan

David Bowie: No Plan
$1.29  Buy Link Comment

“Here, there’s no music here. I’m lost in streams of sound. Here, am I nowhere now? No plan.” Tom Hingston’s music video for one of Bowie’s final tracks will pierce you to the core, its static-filled screens where Ziggy, the Thin White Duke, and Bowie’s other personas once appeared.

Kakkmaddafakka: Lilac

Kakkmaddafakka: Lilac

Director Carlín Díaz presents a charming and wonderfully animated music video about two strangers who share a wonderful day together, but will never see each other again – except in their dreams and memories. The song comes from Norwegian indie rockers KMF.

OK Go: The One Moment

OK Go: The One Moment

The latest from video maestros OK Go starts off with a bang, making a destructive mess in its first 4.2 seconds. The rest of the video is simply those same 4.2 seconds shown in super slow-motion, revealing numerous details you surely missed the first time around. BTS here.

Jamie XX: Gosh

Jamie XX: Gosh
$1.29  Buy Link Comment

Romain Gavras’ video for Jamie XX’s electronica track Gosh leaves a whole lot open to interpretation, but it’s still one of the most visually powerful music videos we’ve seen, as a veritable army of followers flock to a mysterious man. From the album In Colour.

LORN: Anvil

LORN: Anvil

Hélène Jeudy & Antoine Caëcke’s animated video for LORN’s retrofuturist track envisions a future in which overpopulation is “cured” by making humans terminate their bodies, and upload their souls into a social network. Let’s hope Facebook doesn’t get any funny ideas.

Bob in the Rain and The Lizard of Hope

Bob in the Rain and The Lizard of Hope

Singer/songwriter Tom Rosenthal’s track tells the story of a very sad man named Bob, and a lizard who ultimately saves his life. The tale of hope is perfectly complemented by a Wizard of Oz-esque transition from black and white to colorful worlds by animator Dave Anderson.

Beautiful People

Beautiful People

We love the juxtaposition of nature and visual effects in director Michał Marczak’s music video for Mark Pritchard’s collaboration with Radiohead’s Thom Yorke. Pritchard’s original instrumental is about loss, contrasted with Yorke’s vocals about love and hope.

Car Seat Headrest: Vincent

Car Seat Headrest: Vincent

If The Strokes and Cake had a baby, their offspring would be Car Seat Headrest. The band deftly melds founder Will Toledo’s sharp vocals and lyrics with raw garage rock, trumpet and trombone in this track from the new album Teens of Denial.

Band of Horses: Casual Party

Band of Horses: Casual Party
$1.29  Buy Link Comment

Band of Horses lets their freak flags fly in Ben Fee’s video for their awesomely catchy new single, set at a party filled with strange and wonderful creatures. It’s like the alt-pop version of Cantina Band. Lyrics here.

Coldplay: Up&Up

Coldplay: Up&Up
$1.29  Buy Link Comment

Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia’s video for Coldplay’s single combines visuals of real world settings filmed at dramatically different distances. The result is a surreal world in which soccer is played on a sponge, volcanoes spew popcorn, and babies fly on airplane wings.

Lord Huron: The World Ender

Lord Huron: The World Ender
$1.29  Buy Link Comment

“I’m the World Ender, baby, and I’m back from the grave… They can run for their lives but they cannot be saved.” We got a serious No Country for Old Men vibe from Ariel Vida’s sinister music video for Lord Huron’s vengeance-filled, ’50s surf music influenced track.

Jeff Lynne’s ELO: When I Was a Boy

Jeff Lynne’s ELO: When I Was a Boy
$1.29  Buy Link Comment

Jeff Lynne has continued to produce and create music since the heyday of Electric Light Orchestra, and he’s still got it. His latest single is a reflection on his own childhood dreams, and Warren Fu’s video is a love letter to Lynne himself. From the album Alone in the Universe.

De Staat: Witch Doctor

De Staat: Witch Doctor

(PG-13: Language) Even if De Staat’s intense track isn’t your musical cup of tea, Studio Smack’s mindblowing music video will pull you in and won’t let go. The low-budget video was made with mo-cap and CGI trickery. We haven’t felt this way since seeing Mad Max: Fury Road.

DUM: I’ll Be Around

DUM: I’ll Be Around
$1.29  Buy Link Comment

For their latest hum-worthy music video, DUM yet again face-swapped themselves with movie actors, this time choosing Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom as their subject of choice. Even the chilled monkey brains got a new face.

Sometimes I Feel So Deserted

Sometimes I Feel So Deserted

Director Ninian Doff’s video for The Chemical Brothers’ new track works as a brilliant standalone work of science fiction, leaving us wanting to know so much more about this dystopian world that lives somewhere between Mad Max, The Walking Dead and Westworld.

Hundred Waters: Innocent

Hundred Waters: Innocent

“An empty spacecraft. A paranoid vacuum cleaner robot. Some strange invaders. Jeremy Clapin’s animated short film serves as the music video for Hundred Waters‘ dreamlike track Innocent, and also is a great little science fiction story.

Turn Down for What without Music

Turn Down for What without Music

(NSFW?) We already had to wash our eyeballs out with soap the first time we watched the video for DJ Snake and Lil’ Jon’s Turn Down for What. Now that College Humor has had their way with it, we might be scarred for life.

Give Life Back to Music: Animated

Give Life Back to Music: Animated

Daft Punk’s Give Life Back to Music is a great track, but its official music video leaves a little to be desired. Thankfully, Bitter Strike! Cartoons created their own fan-made music video that lives up to Daft Punk’s musical vision.

W&W: Bigfoot

W&W: Bigfoot

Shhh! I think I hear a samsquanch! Follow the pulsing, synth-heavy tracks of dance music duo W&W deep into the darkest of woods and you may discover the not so elusive but ridiculously awesome music video for their banger Bigfoot. 

The Difference a Day Makes

The Difference a Day Makes

Dark sci-fi visuals and an ambiance inspired by the emptiness of space are somewhat at odds with Jim Guthrie’s earthy sound but his music still works brilliantly with the video for this somber single off his album Takes Time.

Like a Rolling Stone Video

Like a Rolling Stone Video

Almost 50 years after the release of Bob Dylan’s first electric single, Like A Rolling Stone finally has a music video and an interactive one at that. Flick through the different ‘stations’ for a different experience every time you watch.

CD Animation

CD Animation

Have some CDs lying around? Don’t just use them as coasters! Revamping a classic form of animation, frames were printed onto 189 discs to produce a very cool and appropriate effect for the video of Life is Music by Japanese band SOUR.
