Florence + The Machine – “What Kind Of Man” Video + How Big How Blue How Beautiful Details

Earlier this week, Florence + The Machine debuted a video titled "How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful" that was too magnificently restrained not to be the precursor to something else. Indeed it was -- Florence was on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show today and revealed that her new album is coming i… More »

Florence + The Machine – “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful” Video

It's been a while since we've heard from Florence + The Machine, but they're all over the festival circuit this summer, and it seems likely that they'll soon come out with a follow-up to 2011's soaring Ceremonials.

Paul McCartney – “Early Days” Video (Feat. Johnny Depp)

Someone needs to inform Johnny Depp that hanging out with ancient, beloved rock stars does not make you cool. Depp didn't automatically become cool by getting Keith Richards cast in that one Pirates Of The Caribbean movie, and now that he's shown up in three recent Paul McCartney videos, that doesn't make him cool, either.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

A quick word about Flying Lotus's "Phantasm" video and videos like it: That's a really good video! Many of the videos like it are good, too!

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

The top two videos on this list couldn't be more different in terms of concept, execution, intent, emotion, or aesthetic -- or, perhaps least important of all, music. They do, however, have one thing in common: They're both biker epics. A couple of weeks ago, Twin Shadow landed at the top of this list with… More »

Spiritualized – “Little Girl” Video

Thus far, Spiritualized's excellent new Sweet Heart Sweet Light album has yielded two videos. Jason Pierce hasn't appeared in either of them, and both of them follow the harrowing stories of outsider types trying to scrape by on the fringes of society. "Hey Jane" had a transgender stripper, and now "Little Girl" focuse… More »

The 7 Best Videos Of The Week

This week we've got new clips from Depeche Mode, James Blake, Beyoncé, Calvin Harris, Princeton, and Alcoholic Faith Mission. The Depeche Mode clip is directed by Patrick Daughters. He's one of my favorite directors, but it looks like he's been focusing on commercials more and more. The Alcoholic Faith Mission video has been out for… More »
