Consistently one of our favorite music video directors, Nabil's latest video for Foals was created using GoPro cameras and is best viewed in the Youtube App on your phone. All you have to do is stand in on place and watch the video while moving your phone around... it's trippy.

Update from an older post, with evidence that these guys are really good: Tame Impala's new LP, Currents, out today, July 17 through Modular, is really good. On the occasion, we wanted to share the new video for the track "'Cause I'm a Man" because its the summer sounds we prefer. Tame Impala and lead singer/songwriter Kevin Parker always seems to have a very good feel for the visual aspects of his music, and having the Currents cover be done by Kentucky-based artist Robert Beatty is pretty cool, too. Can't wait to see them at Outside Lands this August! Check it after the jump.

Today Knxwledge released this welcomingly psychedelic video for the tracks "Flyinglizrds" and "Shuremng," animated by Ruff Mercy (who did this RTJ video) with footage from Ross Harris. Watch and enjoy! Light green, lime green, avocado...

If you didn't get a chance to visit Björk's retrospective/introspective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art these past few months, the centerpiece of the show was the MoMA-commissioned music video for Björk's "Black Lake" track directed by the great Andrew Thomas Huang. Both the epic opus of her new LP, Vulnicura that seems to speak of her split with Matthew Barney, this is also the absolute highlight of the exhibition. The show was difficult for some, even us who had Björk on the cover of our April 2015 issue, but this video experience at MoMA was undeniable. Now you can watch...

Blur's return has been one of the best in receont memory. This isn't a band that is back because of money or some sort of pressure; they made a really great album in The Magic Whip, and they are having fun with it. "Ong Ong" is one of the standout tracks on the album (and the standout live track when we saw them in Brooklyn a few weeks ago), and now we have the band dressed up, animated, and Damon Albarn as an icre cream cone in the video. Directed by Tony Hung.. enjoy.
