Young Widows – “King Sol” Video

By Aaron Lindenberg / February 23, 2015
Louisville post-punk trio Young Widows make videos as dark and dramatic as their grinding, hopeless songs. Their new clip for the brooding Easy Pain track "King Sol" is no exception.

By James Rettig / February 23, 2015
Alt-J have shared a video for "Pusher," a muted track from their sophomore album, This Is All Yours.

The Darkness – “Barbarian” Video

By Michael Nelson / February 23, 2015
Depending on how you view these things, the Darkness arrived either two decades too late or a decade-or-so too early. The band's great first album, Permission To Land, came out in 2003: If it had come out in 1983, it would have been right at home alongside releases by bands like Judas Priest, the Scorpions,… More »

By Caitlin White / February 21, 2015
Since Nile Rodgers guested on Daft Punk's massive hit "Get Lucky," it makes sense that they'd return the favor. After announcing It's About Time, the first new Chic album in 23 years via Twitter, he's begun teasing a video that Daft Punk made to accompany the record… More »

TCTS – “Coupe De Ville” (Feat. Aniff Akinola) Video

By Chris DeVille / February 20, 2015
We previously described TCTS and Aniff Akinola's house-rap hybrid "Coupe De Ville," from TCTS' upcoming Body EP, as "breezy," "effervescent," and "generally irresistible." That's correct: Even I love it, and I'm someone who has spent my whole life fielding people's terrible "Coupe De Ville" jokes. (Also Cruella de Vil, who spells her name totally… More »

By Tom Breihan / February 20, 2015
This week's videos: A romantic apocalyptic vision, a balling-on-a-budget masterclass, a giddy cartoon crossover, an absolutely fucking disgusting surgery-room fever-dream, and a glittering metropolitan drug-trip. None of them have anything to do with each other! But they're all really good! There is not a single thread connecting this week's best videos beyond the fact that… More »

Jidenna – “Classic Man” Video

By Tom Breihan / February 20, 2015
Up until, the members of Janelle Monáe's Wondaland Arts Society have been mostly known as the cool-looking, well-dressed gentlemen who dance behind Monáe in videos. That's not a bad lane, all things considered. But this spring, Wondaland will release an as-yet-untitled compilation that will allow all these guys to shine on their own. First up:… More »

Watch Stephen Malkmus Cover Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” For Portland Kids

By James Rettig / February 19, 2015
While Stephen Malkmus doesn't seem to care about a Pavement reunion, he does care about making sure a group of kids has the best time possible. And the easiest way to do that?
