We love how simple the explanation for this short film is: Beach House perform outside in their atmospheric short film. The band made it a tad more clearer: We performed/recorded four songs from Bloom outdoors, in various locations that are special for us around El Paso and Tornillo, Texas. The film follows the passing of one night, starting at sunset and ending at dawn. Go, watch, now.

A great collection of drawings from Los Angeles based Justin Hopkins, who also goes by the name RareBit. As RareBit, Hopkins releases music via Non Projects, and his illustration work is full of fine details and pointillism style. Growing up in Washington, Hopkins says of his work: I like to think of my music as fungus encrusted and in a constant state of growth and decay. In this way I am influenced by the organic, wet, and florally lush environment in which I grew up.

The video is intended to be viewed in complete darkness from maximum effect. That is what the video description warns you.

Animal Collective's Applesauce was directed by Gaspar Noé and features model Lindsey Wixson with elements from Paul Sharits' 1968 short film N:O:T:H:I:N:G thrown in there. Enjoy after the jump...
