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 …

Watch M83′s Almost NSFW “In The Cold I’m Standing” Music Video

As one would expect, M83‘s early material–2001’s M83, 2004’s Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts, and 2005’s Before the Dawn Heals Us–sold out long, long ago. To help fans out, the indie synthpop act have reissued them all in CD, vinyl, and digital formats through Mute Records with, you guessed it, rarities and B-sides.

To give people a taste of what those rare tracks sound like, M83’s Anthony Gonzalez has shared two lost music videos. The first was the outer space phenomenon “Lower Your Eyelids to Die with the Sun,” and this time we get an …

BRONCHO

Watch BRONCHO’s VHS-Ready Video for “Class Historian”

BRONCHO dropped their sophomore album Just Enough Hip To Be Woman yesterday, but we’ve been busy spinning “Class Historian” long before then. The single is catchy as ever, clocks in at the perfect length, and makes you wonder why you haven’t been listening to the band longer (or seen them live). Simply put, it’s about as perfect as a summer single gets.

Directed by George Salisbury and Delo Creative, the new music video for “Class Historian” sees BRONCHO appearing in some retro clips straight from a VHS tape. Prepare for some excellent curled phone cords, giant sweater clothing ads, …

MUSIC VIDEO: Death From Above 1979 – “Trainwreck 1979″

Two people can make a lot of noise, and Death From Above 1979 are responsible for reminding us of that 10 years after their debut. Their new album, The Physical World, sees them creating a whole thunderstorm of noise with bass and drums and shrieking vocals. One of the album’s singles, the snarky “Trainwreck 1979,″ just got a music video, and it keeps that pounding force coming strong.

In the music video, we watch a young woman going about her life, seemingly thinking about how it’s still not delivering all she hopes to get out of it thanks to …

Watch Clipping.’s Incredibly Inventive “Inside Out” Music Video

Sub Pop has gotten really into hip hop lately, and Clipping. is their newest act on the bill. After dropping a remarkable debut, CLPPNG, full of extremely vivid lyricism and original instrumental backing beats, the Los Angeles-based trio have been prepping highly-engaging visuals. The newest on their list is a side-smirking lyric video for “Inside Out.”

Instead of taking the usual route and pasting the words across the screen, Clipping. have plopped Daveed Diggs in the center of the screen and asked him to walk around the city rapping the song’s lyrics. One snip in Photoshop and his head is …

Charli XCX

Watch Charli XCX Hijack a School Bus In “Break The Rules” Video

Back before “Fancy” and The Fault In Our Stars and millions of YouTube views, Charli XCX was ghostwriting for singers and working on her own set of pop songs. Fastforward to 2014, and she’s putting out a new album called Sucker (out October 21), and singing a little off-key on the radio to “Boom Clap.” This year has seen her swap her sound to a new house pop style, but “Break The Rules” is phenomenally recorded, giving attention to bass drops and electric drum claps carefully instead of overindulging when not needed — and the new music video …

The Kooks Forgive Forget

Spin 360 Degrees in The Kooks’ “Forgive & Forget” Video

English indie rock heartthrobs The Kooks have dropped a new single titled “Forgive and Forget” this year as a precursor to their upcoming full-length, Listen, due out September 8 via Virgin/EMI (pre-orders are ongoing). In anticipation, they’ve shared a music video for the EP’s catchy title track.

The video shows all four members performing the song on a white, circular platform while modern go-go dancers in ’60s eye-ware twirl around them. In case their moves didn’t get your heart fluttering, the constant camera rotation will. Spin around in a full circle in what pans out as a bright …

Watch Alt-J’s New “Left Hand Free” Music Video

English indie rock group Alt-J do a good job of keeping their sound quivering with unanticipated volumes and tones. It looks like they do the same with their music videos, too. In the new clip the band shared for “Left Hand Free” off This Is All Yours (out September 22 via Warner Music), we take a massive turn in the road from where their “Hunger of the Pine” video left off.

Last time we were left watching a man literally run for his life. Now we get the chance to breathe as they screen clips of …
