Welcome back, Arcade Fire, a good timing at that for us. Anton Corbijn, who shot the photo of Tom Waits on the cover of our October 2013 issue, directs this sprawling Talking Heads meets Bee Gees meets Daft Punk meets Arcade Fire meets LCD Soundsystem (he did produce the track) track "Reflektor" for the Montreal-based band.

Swedish music video director Jonas Odell is behind the snappy, graphic design heavy video for the new Franz Ferdinand track, "Right Action," but has also been at the helm of some other great videos in recent years. Not only did he do the video for the Franz Ferdinand accidental mega hit "Take Me Out," he has done work for U2, The Hours, Goldfrapp, and The Rolling Stones. Enjoy a music break...

Well, obviously KAWS has big things in store this weekend at the MTV Video Music Awards, airing this Sunday, August 25 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. We knew he had redesigned the iconic Moonman statue for the award show, and because we like to scour Instagram, we have seen a 60' foot KAWS designed Moonman that will be right in the heart of the Barclays Center during the show. But now we see some updates regarding the great Todd "REAS" James, some bears, and Miley Cyrus. We may actually watch this one.

James Houston uses old technology such as SEGA Mega Drives, Commodore 64s, floppy disk drives and other random computer parts to create music. His newest music video, titled Polybius is shot in the bottom of a swimming pool and follows a preview cover of Radiohead's "Nude."

Portugal. The Man have been making great videos for years, but this recent gem from director AG Rojas for the track "Modern Jesus" may be our favorite to date. Just kind of watching the world go by in all its beautiful destruction and almost drug-fueled banality. Love this clip...

The new video for Just Blaze & Baauer's latest track "Higher" is one of the most beautifully shot we have seen in a while. However, this is not surprising considering renowned director Nabil is the man behind it. The video tells the the epic story of a group of Kalaripayattu warriors (martial artists) and a spirited young kid in Kerala, India, who leads his fellow child vigilantes to fight a drunk bully.

The staff at Juxtapoz was happy to see that Youth Lagoon made it out to the Outside Lands Music & Art Festival this past weekend in San Francisco, and even happier that a video has been released for the stellar track "Raspberry Cane" off of the 2013 gem, Wondrous Bughouse. Enjoy the animated video directed by Stephen McNally.

It kind of blows our minds that someone this young, such as the 18-year old UK-based musician King Krule, can be so confident and this good. We have known about King Krule for a bit now, but his new video for "Easy Easy" which shows two young British lads going around looking up to no good, even getting involved in some tags and what not, is one of the best songs we have heard all year, and just an interesting video treatment to enjoy this morning. Directed by Focus Creeps.

Juxtapoz is on the ground at the annual Outside Lands Music and Art Festival held in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park each August (and that would be Aug 9-11 this year), and again for the third year, we have curated the art portion of the event. This year, we have Mike Shine, Dennis McNett, and Camille Rose Garcia created site-specific installations, but of course, there is a ton of music, and today we are showcasing some of the best music that we might be seeing today... let's gander...
