Watch Angel Olsen’s New Elizabethan Video for “Windows”

This week, Angel Olsen will release the deluxe version of Burn Your Fire For No Witness, her remarkable LP from earlier this year. The expanded package includes new songs, outtakes, and that crisp vinyl sound all wrapped up neatly in clean packaging. One of the album’s original songs, “Windows,” has just gotten music video treatment in anticipation of the release.

Directed by Rick Alverson, the video sees Angel Olsen at a particularly dampening time. She watches as children play in a field, stares ahead blankly while Vaseline is smeared on her face, and stands disconnected in Elizabethan clothes …

Watch Little Dragon’s New “Underbart” Music Video

Swedish synth rock act Little Dragon dropped a brand new album this year titled Nabuma Rubberband. Now, to celebrate the release, they have shared a music video for album cut “Underbart” that keeps things moving along.

The video soundtracks their fourth single seamlessly. Watch as the crew roam about in exhaustive dance moves, flaunting a decent selection of vibrant wigs in the process in alleyways and bus seats. The downtempo dance number comes to life in the way you could imagine. Check it out below:…

Greylag Video Still

Watch Greylag’s Mysterious Video for “Yours to Shake”

Last month, Portland trio Greylag put out one of our favorite folk rock albums of the year. The self-titled debut came out on Dead Oceans to fond reviews, and we couldn’t help but swoon ourselves upon hearing it in full. Now, a little after its release, the three are sharing a new video for the excellent single “Yours to Shake.”

The Band of Horses meets Fleet Foxes song gets an eerie undertow with the video. Directed by Ben Fee, the music video sees a woman in white running through the woods which are, conspicuously, filled with colorful strings, …

Foxygen Love Video

Watch Foxygen’s Lavish Video for “Coulda Been My Love”

At long last, Foxygen‘s heavily anticipated sophomore release, …And Star Poweris out today via Jagjaguwar. The 82-minute release sees them roving through psychedelic trips and indie rock ballads, working towards a youthful masterpiece that clings to the ’70s with a romanticized sigh. To celebrate today’s album release, they shared a video for their second single, “Coulda Been My Love.”

The soft melodies surprise once again in “Coulda Been My Love,” but this time they feel even more powerful. Directed by Grant Singer, the video sees the two men luxing it up, flaunting vintage clothing and cheeky moves …

Watch tUnE-yArDs Battle Colorful Mannequins in “Real Thing” Video

Freak folk has a new queen, and she’s still ruling the world months after her latest release. Merill Garbus, aka tUnE-yArDs, has just shared a new video for “Real Thing” off of this year’s LP Nikki Nack via NPR. In a press release, Garbus said the following:

I believe “Real Thing” was the one song I didn’t want to make a video for. It has too many images of its own in the lyrics, and could mean so many different things for different listeners… I love leaving room for audiences to paint their own mental pictures. What changed my

Liars video

Watch Liars’ Freaky Video for “I’m No Gold”

At the beginning of this year, Los Angeles electro-punk group Liars put out their dark, eerie new album MESS. They also shared a video for “Pro Anti Anti” which showed clay versions of their faces being melted. It was a perfect visual companion to the song to show their edgy sound and its twisted undertones.

Now they’re getting a little darker in their new “I’m No Gold” video.

The band’s fascination with faces continues within the visuals for “I’m No Gold.” Angus Andrew’s wild faces and nonstop hair flipping gets the limelight in Laurie Lynch’s video for a …

Never Catch Me Kendrick Flying Lotus

Watch Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar’s “Never Catch Me” Video

On October 7, Flying Lotus drops his newest album, You’re Dead!, via Warp Records. It’s a 19-track effort that features collaborations with Herbie Hancock, ex-Dirty Projectors’ Angel Deradoorian, Snoop Dogg, Thundercat, and FlyLo’s hip-hop alter-ego, Captain Murphy. A few others, like Pharrell, turned down guest spots for fear of the album’s heavy content. With the first music video in our hands, it makes sense why.

In his new video for “Never Catch Me,” Flying Lotus sees his single play alongside a clip of two children at their own funeral. The Kendrick Lamar collaboration gets grim, despite being …

Watch HAIM and Napoleon Dynamite’s Jon Heder Crash Chromeo’s “Old 45’s” Video

Electro-pop duo and general mischief makers Chromeo are at it again. After releasing a slew of singles we’ve been fawning over, the two have up and shared a music video for White Women cut “Old 45′s” that features the type of mayhem you would expect from a romance rival song.

Directed by Dugan O’Neal, the video features all three of the HAIM sisters, Napoleon Dynamite’s Jon Heder, and the dancing duo popping moves in a diner to win over the lady of the hour. With the lyric “If you think romance is dead and gone / find an old …

Watch Sam Smith’s Rise to Fame in “Restart” Video

Sam Smith has had one hell of a year. The breakout artist has seen his singles rocket on the charts, been performing at festivals around the world, and found himself seated in the cushions of countless award shows. Throughout that rise in fame, Smith and his pals had been filming the moments happen — and now they’ve been compiled for his new “Restart” video.

The In The Lonely Hour cut sees stacked shots of him on his tour bus, playing around behind the scenes, and going to the beach with friends. It’s a grainy re-cap of his ascent. Nothing makes …

Mastodon Bring in Twerking Dancers for “The Motherload” Video

If you thought Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” video had an overload of butt shaking, think again. Metal gurus Mastodon have just shared a new video for “The Motherload” from Once More ‘Round The Sun and it’s giving Minaj’s video a run for its money.

The video sees men in cloaks and women in minimal clothing taking over the floor to see who has the best dance moves. We’re all for friendly competition, but seeing the band perform next to close-up shots of the women feels a little too over-sexualized. It’s part of Minaj’s shtick — but is it part of theirs? …

MUSIC VIDEO: Say Lou Lou – “Games For Girls”

Swedish/Australian pop twins Say Lou Lou have been sprinkling hit songs throughout 2014, namely the dark “Everything We Touch” and sultry “Beloved.” Now they’re back with a new single, and it may be their best yet.

The song, titled “Games For Girls,” has them teaming up with the electronic producer Lindstrøm. It’s a flurry of electro disco and sweet vocals, all the more enhanced by the music video that sees them employing guerilla marketing antics. Considering it was directed by Dimitri Basil of the L.A.-based Welcome to Cult, the craziness makes sense. Watch the video below …

Watch PUP Wreck Their Car in “Mabu” Music Video

Toronto punks PUP have been up to no good this year — and by that we mean totally killing it. After releasing their self-titled debut back in April and doing a series of tour dates, the four piece group have decided to share a new music video for “Mabu.” This time around, they’re actually killing it.

The song, which is named after the band’s beloved car, sees them put the vehicle out of its misery. They get to work cutting and pasting, turning the four door into a pizza-spinning punkmobile that gets entered into a demolition derby for a final …
