Some people are scared of clowns. Some people don't like to see sad clowns. And we are sure some people will be on the flipside and like to see Courtney Barnett dressed up like a clown for the track "Pedestrian At Best" that will be on her forthcoming LP, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit is out March 24 via Mom + Pop. For any song that begins with the lyrics, "I love you I hate you," we approve.

Previously he has also done videos for Disclosure, Danny Brown, Dudley Perkins, Blu + Flying Lotus, and House Shoes among many others...

We have mentioned it before on this site, especially with the Viet Cong track "Continental Shelf" video we posted a few months back: we are really happy the Canadian bands self-titled debut LP is out now. This is the Brook Linder-sci-fi weirdo adventure video for the track "Silhouettes" that should get you equally excited about the Viet Cong album.

Watch FKA Twigs twisted and bound by her own hair, suspended above and almost swallowed by some molten silver in her latest music video for "Pendulum" off LP1. The self-directed video is unique, authentic and reaffirms an artistic talent that reaches beyond just music. We like it.
