Just yesterday, Jenny Lewis and Vanessa Bayer were joking about Troop Beverly Hills, the 1989 kids movie that Lewis appeared in when she was a child actor. Turns out the movie was on their mind for a reason: Lewis’ new self-directed video for “She’s Not Me,” the most absolutely magnificent song on her 2014 instant… More »

Watch Arcade Fire Mime Loverboy’s “Working For The Weekend” & Cover Feist’s “I Feel It All” In Calgary

On their most recent tour, Arcade Fire have been covering some locally significant song in just about every city they visit; it’s how they ended up covering Huey Lewis & The News’ “Back In Time” earlier this week.

I didn’t put it on this week’s list because it’s not, strictly speaking, a good music video. But if you… More »

Feist – “Graveyard” Video

Leslie Feist made a video for “Graveyard,” a song from her album Metals. In the video, she and her backup musicians play on a sandy beach-forest landscape, looking terrifyingly small and insignificant while director Keith Megna films everything in stark high-contrast black-and-white and CGI crows fly around. It’s an eerie vision. And she waited until… More »
