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? …

Joyce Manor Clash With Concertgoer Over Stage Dives In Houston (VIDEO)

Joyce Manor have been making a lot of headlines this week for essentially taking a stance against the proliferation of stage dives, especially at shows where they happen to be performing. These headlines apparently did not reach every concertgoer in attendance at the band’s show in Houston last night, September 26, because mid-way through the group’s set the entire performance was put on hold to address one person vocalist/guitarist Barry Johnson could not stand. Lucky for us, the whole thing was captured on video.

Here’s the scene: Joyce Manor were performing to a packed house when one young man decided …

Watch Wand’s Trippy Cartoon Video for “Flying Golem”

Psych rock band Wand made a smashing debut this year with their full-length Ganglion Reef, tossing out the kind of first record that makes you wonder how much planning went in to make a record so creative. Now they’re keeping those juices flowing in the music video for their lead single Flying Golem.

Directed and animated by Meghan Tryon and Garrett M. Davis, the video sees a seamless blend of pixelated drawings and computer animation morphing to create castles, wizards, and musical magic. With work that’s well woven, it makes it so easy to get lost …

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 …

Damien Rice My Favourite Faded Fantasy

Damien Rice Streams “I Don’t Want To Change You”

We are still bouncing off the walls with excitement over the fact that Damien Rice is back in the music scene, and earlier today the singer/songwriter delivered a second taste of his new album that somehow managed to make our love for his signature sound grow.

“I Don’t Want To Change You” is the second new song from Damien Rice to surface in two weeks. The song plays like a love letter to someone Rice may or may not be with at this present point in time. There appears to be some kind of distance between Rice and the person …

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, …

Ooo Karen O

Spike Jonze Surprises Karen O With “Ooo” Music Video Feat. Elle Fanning

Last week, Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O shared her first ever solo album, a short release filled with minute-long songs about heartbreak, love, and isolation. Even though it was released in 2014, the songs were written years ago from the comfort of her bedroom when she was much younger. To capture that spirit, her ex and famous director Spike Jonze created a music video for the album’s opening track, “Ooo,” that speaks to what Crush Songs is all about.

The video sees Elle Fanning dancing around the New York Metropolitan Opera House in childish fanfare. It nails the mood …
