Musically and aesthetically, British Sea Power have always treaded a fine line between pop and experimentation, whether playing a full concert in a cave or writing a catchy tune about a melting iceberg. What we are trying to say is that they are really good. On April 1, BSP will release Machineries of Joy via Rough Trade, and their first video for the record features bikes, the countryside, and a girl who may be lost.

Straight from LA'a Angelus mountains, Haim have released their latest song "Falling" along with a video directed by Tabitha Denholm. Creating a story of innocent-looking sisters transforming into playful, 70's style girls. This vintage style video involves high-waisted skirts, button-up blouses and long, flowing hair. Capturing the essence of Haim's live shows...

We are always looking for great music videos, either in their simplistic mastery of their full-blown artistic expression. Oh, and it helps if the song is good. Sin Fang's "Look At the Light" video, directed by Máni M. Sigfússon who is actually the person behind Sin Fang, is a stunning piece of video art, taking some of the concepts we have loved recently in the double-exposure works of Pat Perry or Oriol Angrill Jordà, but adding some experimental digital elements.

Last time we engaged with Thom Yorke and music videos, it happened to be him dancing to an abstract choreographed routine prepared by Wayne McGregor for the Radiohead video "Lotus Flower." Mr Yorke is now working on his new project, Atoms For Peace and the newly released LP Amok, and again is working in movement with McGregor and director Garth Jennings. This time, we have khaki suits and dancer Fukiko Takase and the mellow, sublime track "Ingenue."

Keith Schofield has compiled and edited stock footage to bring you this painfully ironic and delightful music video to accompany Darwin Deez's You Can't Be My Girl... and since its Tuesday, you should be enjoying yourself.

Wild Nothing (aka Jack Tatum) just released a new music video for the song Only Heather. The video follows a man walking around impaled by a sword, symbolizing (we assume) the pain of a heart broken by a girl probably named Heather.

We are pretty sure that whatever video Bat For Lashes decides to make, its going to be good at this point. She has a proper track record for it. But her newest video for the track Lilies has been directed by Peter Sluszka and described as ... puppets, a flock of 2D spirits, miniature landscapes, morphing polygons, and most importantly, Natasha herself were animated to create a universe in constant flux.

Full of flesh, Ty Segall's newest video for 'Thank God for Sinners' will get you moving your body while stimulating your visual senses with some serious skin. 'Thank God for sinners, thank God for your love.... In the morning, I'll rise above.'

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.
