Here’s a new pop-candy video from the ever-hip Uffie. The song is not new (released in 2008), but the video is, as is the Mirwais remix. Full of sun-dappled polyester scenes and primary-colored legs in kaleidoscope, this video promises to please the masses.

Datarock’s new video for “The Pretender” (from Red) was inspired by John Carpenter’s 1988 Roddy Piper flick, They Live. If we’re lucky, the next one will be based on Big Trouble in Little China.

Here’s Death Cab acting very serious while playing their song for the upcoming Twilight sequel, New Moon. Ben Gibbard will tolerate neither trifles nor high jinks while playing this serious song. Even the most innocent jink, high or otherwise, would throw off the atmosphere of this entire operation.

“Whale Song” comes from the odds-and-ends collection, No One’s First and You’re Next and proves that Modest Mouse throws away songs most bands would sell their soul to write. It can only be viewed over at Vimeo for the time being, but it is worth the trip.
