Watch Walking Bicycles’ Dark Stop-Motion Music Video for “Eyesore”

Walking Bicycles‘ name may sound like a quaint twee-pop group, but get ten seconds into one of their songs and you’ll realize they’re anything but. The Chicago-based group stomp around with the type of gloom rock that hinges on noise, speed, and a little bit of pop, all while nodding to Siouxsie and the Banshees. Their newest single “Eyesore” off To Him That Wills The Way (out August 12 via Highwheel Records) is proof of that, and now we get a dark stop-motion music video to accompany it.

Directed and produced by Elliott Kaffee, and inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s …

Sharon Van Etten

Watch Sharon Van Etten’s Intimate “Our Love” Music Video

Sharon Van Etten has been on the road in support of her excellent new album, Are We There, and she’s winding things down before jetting over to Europe by releasing a beautiful new video for “Our Love.” The video, which sees Etten drifting in and out of a love-torn daze, reveals a whole lot of vulnerability, pain, and skin. Since the song is about acknowledging the beauty of letting love wane, it pairs well.

“On set I felt like a privileged witness to something very personal,” said the video’s director Karen Collins. “For greater intimacy, she closes her eyes …

Afghan Whigs Matamoros

Watch Subway Dancers Flip in The Afghan Whigs’ Video for “Matamoros”

If any alt-rock band is allowed to say “been there, done that,” it’s The Afghan Whigs. Earlier this year, the band returned with their first full-length release in 16 years: Do to the Beast. One of the album’s tracks, “Matamoros,” just got a new music video, and it could easily take place in 2014 or 1998.

The video is a super slice of New York City. Directed by Phil Harder (who also did their “Algiers” music video), the video shows the quick, tiresome, and eventful life of subway dancers. There’s a particularly rad routine by NYC crew …

Craft Spells Nausea

Get Your Doodle Inspiration From Craft Spells’ New “Nausea” Video

Craft Spells, aka Justin Vallesteros, shared a new music video for “Nausea” this week, the title track to this year’s new album. The hazy, whisperer song glides along with new stop-motion doodles that will inspire you to pick up your pencil and tune out the world, if just for five minutes. On a perfect summer’s day like today, now may be the best time to do so.

Created by visual artist Colin McFadyen, the music video has layered .gifs and hand drawn images that were put through effects into a time-lapsed video. The result is a visual focus on …

Adult Jazz

Get Mesmerized by Adult Jazz’s New Music Video

There’s no shortage of good music videos this year but there is a shortage of time to watch them all. To make the picking and choosing a little easier, go ahead and listen up: Adult Jazz‘s new music video should be bumped to the top of your list for this week.

The new Leeds, England band is a combination of a lot of genres–folk roots, pop, and even some prog–but they pull it off well. What we love about them, however, is how they mix their sound with visuals. In their new video titled “Community Rhythms,” the group play …

Young The Giant 2012

MUSIC VIDEO: Young the Giant – “Mind Over Matter”

Earlier this year, Californian indie-pop group Young the Giant dropped a new album titled Mind Over Matter. It’s bright, fun, and more anthemic than their past work, particularly the title track (as almost all title tracks are). Now that we have a music video to go with that song, it proves just how bold of a band they have become, and why you need to be paying attention.

Directed by Tim Nackashi (Death Cab for Cutie, TV on the Radio, OK Go), the music video watches the seasons change in a somewhat trippy setup as we’re reminded that life goes …

Pup interview 2014

Watch PUP Cover the Buzzcocks

Punk manages to revitalize itself every few years just enough for bands to claim it isn’t dead but for modern dads to say it’s not the same. Today we find ourselves right in the meat of that argument as Side One Dummy punk group PUP head over to the AV Club to cover one of the 1970s’ most important punk bands, the Buzzcocks.

Watch as the Canadian quartet do a solid job of channeling that punk spirit as their guitars snarl during the cover. They don’t get too fancy, which ultimately is the right move. Instead, they cover the …

Interpol El Pintor

Hear “All the Rage Back Home,” Interpol’s First Single Off ‘El Pintor’

On September 9, Interpol will drop their brand new album El Pintor via Matador Records. The ten-track LP has been something of a mystery so far, with the only audio clips available so far being live recordings from fans and professional cameras. But today, at long last, we get to hear a studio version of their first single, “All the Rage Back Home,” thanks to BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe.

El Pintor is the follow-up to 2010′s self-titled and is, surprisingly, only their fifth record to date. After smashing into the scene with the highly-praised classic Turn on the Bright

Cloud Nothings

Watch Cloud Nothings’ New “Psychic Trauma” Music Video

Ohio rock group Cloud Nothings are back with another music video, this time for “Psychic Trauma” off 2014′s excellent Here and Nowhere ElseUnlike their last video about a sleepover gone totally awry, this one sees straightforward footage of the band performing the song live. Director Ryan Manning still put in a few editing techniques to help amplify the song’s intense, on-point energy, though, so don’t expect the casual live footage slumped together.

If you’re looking for a true live experience of the song, catch the band on tour. They still have a few dates left in …

Jessie Ware

MUSIC VIDEO: Jessie Ware – “Tough Love”

British soul singer Jessie Ware made a huge splash in 2012 with her debut studio album Devotion. She announced a return to the scene last month with “Tough Love,” her first single since that record, which features airy beats and her falsetto swoon-inducing vocals. Now we get a video to go along with said single, and it’s almost just as perfect as the song.

The breathtaking BenZel-produced hit takes on new levels of naturalistic sound in this gorgeous, understated music video thanks to a little help from mother Earth. Colorful, sun-splashed shots of Ware in the studio and …

McCartney new video

Watch Paul McCartney and Johnny Depp Jam in “Early Days” Video

Shortly after announcing his medical recovery and rescheduled US tour dates, The Beatles icon Paul McCartney is dropping the music video for “Early Days,” one of the acoustic hits off of 2013′s New. Directed by Vincent Haycock, the video takes place in the 1950s where McCartney and some special guests, like Johnny Depp, jam together in a rather sentimental setting. Watch it over at Rolling Stone.

“It’s a memory song for me, about me and John in the early days,” McCartney says. “But Vince came up with this great idea: Instead of having young lookalikes of me …

Little Dragon Pretty Girls

Watch Zombies Take Over In Little Dragon’s “Pretty Girls” Video

Swedish synth pop group Little Dragon put out their new album Nabuma Rubberband earlier this year and are slowly rolling out new material to support it. In their newest video for “Pretty Girls,” they’re letting things get glittery and gory.

Almost as sequel to the creepy “Klapp Klapp” video, this Nabil-directed piece follows the same voodoo priestess as she’s pulled out of the graveyard by some guys and forced to enter a beauty pageant. It soon becomes clear that it isn’t all about looks. Who knows, maybe the video will inspire more beauty pageants to focus more on …
