No Kim Deal is a big DEAL, but the Pixies will live to see another day, mainly through a huge fanbase and the talents of Black Francis. So here comes a new Pixies track, "Bagboy" and a brilliant odd video of teen angst and summer suburban fun. It feels a little stadium rock, but the Pixies version. And Kim's vocals basically make this a fun romp. Oh, and the video is really well done, directed by Lamar+Nik.

Throw some skate on it. We love a good Cass McCombs tune, and we love a good assemblage of skate footage put together by Patrick O'Dell any day of the week. And so here we are, on a Monday, and we are getting both together in one music video for McCombs' newest track, "Morning Star," which will be featured on his upcoming LP. Let us enjoy now...

By the way, we are again curating the art portion of the annual Outside Lands Music and Art Festival in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park this summer. We bring this up now because Nine Inch Nails, the comeback version, will be headlining one of the nights. So without further ado, we want to show you the new music video by NIN, "Came Back Haunted," directed by the legendary and consistently interesting and progressive David Lynch. This video could cause a seizure, dance party, industrial hangout session, or just plain listening pleasure. Trent Reznor never looked so blurry.

Two of our favorite things, all in one visual. Steve "ESPO" Powers directing MF DOOM's new project, JJ DOOM. The 2x Juxtapoz cover artist teamed up with the now London-residing DOOM and his newest collaboration with Jneiro Jarel to give a video of the track "Bookhead." The video depicts our Saturday nights: corner liquor store, then reading a bit of Chaucer at the local library. Listening to DOOM. They read our mind...

What do you get when you mix sea-punks, a 50 foot woman with even larger ass-ets, and twerking galore? Why Eric Wareheim's absurd new video for Major Lazer's 'Bubble Butt.' Check out the full five minutes of insanity.

Music videos have become a prominent part of what we do here on the Juxtapoz site because a ton of artists we know and enjoy have been getting work in animating, stop-motiong, or directing some of the best videos out there. We haven't seen a good watercolor video this year, or ever, but this video for Breakbot's "Bay I'm Yours" single is comprised of over 2000 individual watercolor paintings, composed by Irina Dakeva at Wizz Productions. For you counting at home, 2,000 is more than a lot.

Vampire Weekend just released their new LP, Modern Vampires of the City, and over the weekend, we were quite surprised at how subtle and well-arranged the whole affair was. Aesthetically, the band has held their image very close to their sleeve through 3 albums, with smart design and humour. The video for "Diane Young" keeps in the same theme; guest appearences from friends in the Dirty Projectors, Walkmen, Santigold, Sky Ferreira, and masks and bare-chested men. Enjoy.

Well this is a way to get the Friday going. Dvein has art directed and created this great short music video for the band The Vein and their track "Magma" that reminds us that taking drugs, looking at a portrait of Da Vinci, trying to mix paint, and then walking on a frozen tundra does wonders for the imagination.

We love music videos that are nicely crafted, nicely shot, short stories. Thee Oh Sees' video for their song "Toe Cutter-Thumb Buster" directed by John Strong is exactly that.

San Francisco-based graphic artist Scott Hansen goes by the name ISO50 when he works on his photography and design works. And much of it has the look of this video. When he does said video as a musician, he is Tycho, the music producer who makes what we would call "summertime ambiance." This is the video for his new track, "Ascension," directed by Charles Bergquist. Enjoy the psychedelic flourishes.
