Watch the slick new party video for the Cool Kids’ track “Knocked Down”. Here, voluptuous, rump-shaking ladies are replaced for the more tame, Ray-Ban sporting crowd. It’s pretty refreshing to feel a chill groove from a music video these days, without having to think about “the artist”.

Watch the new video for Sahra Motalebi’s haunting song “Migrators”. The stark stills of Motalebi and what appears to be destroyed art installations in a warehouse adds to the already teeming sense of melancholy.

Hurricane Bells is the basement project of Longwave’s Steve Schiltz. There’s a comment on the YouTube video for “This Year”, from his digitally released Tonight Is the Ghost, that says “you deserve more recognition… you are an amazing musician”, which seemed like the height of wisdom after watching the little toy man venture out into the world. Props, Carlos07.

Watch the new video for Animal Collective’s “In the Flowers”, the stunning, sublime opener to Merriweather Post Pavilion. The incongruent visual montages, going from a lo-fi retrospective (with one cool, hard-ass lookin’ dude), to seas of swirling flowers, to explosions of light, color, and ballet, may be a bit overwhelming at times. Nevertheless, it seems like Animal Collective hemorrhages these beautiful overtures at will.

What is the most WTF moment that Lady Gaga has brought about?  Was it the lyric “let’s have some fun / this beat is sick / I wanna take a ride on your disco stick” (from “Lovegame”)?  Was it Christopher Walken doing a dramatic reading of the lyrics of “Poker Face”?  Was it the TV interview she did where she wore a dress made entirely out of Kermit the Frog dolls?  Oh no, dear reader.  Those moments have now been usurped by Francis Lawrence-helmed, Kubrik-indebted clip for “Bad Romance”, off of the forthcoming re-release of Lady GaGa’s unbelievably-successful debut album The Fame.
