A little bit of Beatlemania thrown towards Phoenix by way of Sofia Coppola's camera. As part of a MoMA Poprally presents release, Coppola directed a new video for the Phoenix track, "Chloroform," and in an interview with MoMA's Associate Curator in the Department of Film, Anne Mora, Coppola noted "I wanted it to be a fantasy of young girls fixated on a band they love, and try to capture that feeling I remember of seeing bands when I was a kid, when you could totally lose it… and to play up the band as close but out of reach. It’s a fantasy audience, all young, pretty girls."

We have worked with both Portugal. The Man and Mike D's Beastie Boys in the past (the latter an entire issue earlier this year), and we loved that both Mike and the Portugal guys teamed up for a remix of their "Modern Jesus" track. And, we just saw, there is a music video... enjoy some Sunday tunes...

We were recently reminded (thanks TWBE) of this fantastic 1973 animation Keiichi Tanaami did for John Lennon's Oh! Yoko! and felt obliged to brighten your morning with it! Tanaami has been on the site a few time as of late, he is one of the great Japanese pop and psychedelic artists of the postwar era!

Earlier this year we saw an unlikely but perfect match for an album cover: Tyler, the Creator teamed up with Mark Ryden. Directed by Wolf Haley, Tyler's latest video sees that album cover turned into a set in addition to several other highly entertaining scenes from the always imaginative and bizarre mind of the Odd Future frontman.

Chris Cunningham is a visionary music video director, creating visuals that can potentially outlive the music its made for (although the music of Aphex Twin and others is quite good and longlasting in the mind). Warpaint is a band of 4 women from Los Angeles that make melodic art rock music. Cunningham followed Warpaint for two years and the result is Love Is To Die, a documentary of sorts that we have a teaser for today...

Painted, directed, and created by Lauren Gregory, Toro Y Moi's new video "Rose Quartz" is entirely stop-motion oil painting. It's a fun techinique that we've seen in several music videos over the last few months. Enjoy it after the jump!
