Butter Ya'Self is a new track featuring a banana (Nana Splits) and bread roll (ButterKrust) letting us know how much tastier they are. "We on a roll. Bitch, I am a roll. Getting hot and heavy in the oven like a casserole. Making bread. Shit, I'm made of bread. And these fruits and veggies all faker than Potato Head." You need to watch it.

Have you ever wanted to see Jack White as a tattoo? Actually, we are pretty sure many of our readers got White Stripes tattoos circa "Seven Nation Army." Well, now that Jack White is just Jack White, and not a Stripe or Raconteur, he is set to release a new LP, Lazaretto on June 10th, and here is the title track video directed by Jonas & Francois.

We saw this amazing video for Flying Lotus' track "Phantasm" from the album "Until the Quiet Comes," and was just reminded about how incredible it was when we saw it reposted on ItsNiceThat. Director Markus Hofko filmed this surreal adventure over two days on Desert Rd, on the North Island of New Zealand. He notes about the production: "2 characters and me behind the camera was all there was. Nice and simple. And complicated." Enjoy.

The War On Drugs have given 2014 one of its first great rock albums in "Lost In a Dream", a mixture of Bruce Springsteen and even early 1980's Bowie vibe put through a Philly filter. The music video for the single "Red Eyes" has director Anthony Zagarella having a bit of fun, with the band standing in well for judges of a talent show.

We love this video by Director, Producer, and filmmaker Jesse Yules for Diana's 'Perpetual Surrender.' The beautiful video was made solely with folded paintings and mirrors. Watch it, some of her other videos, and several amazing GIFs after the jump...

It was only a matter of time when someone from a band called Animal Collective would work with Jim Henson's Creature Shop on some sort of project. Avey Tare (born David Portner), who was in Animal Collective and now fronts his own band, Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks (with an LP "Enter The Slasher House" out April 7/8th on Domino), has a new single and video out for the track "Little Fang." The song was inspired by Avey's cat, the video is directed by Avey's sister, Abby Portner, and the puppets are from Henson. Go watch.

Rakim is a legend, no need to argue or debate that issue. This wonderful video, "Words by Rakim," is not only insightful into the world of an accomplished hip-hop artist, but an artistic approach to the medium of documentary shorts. Matt Bieler, great job.

Today we’re enjoying French musician Gesaffelstein’s Pursuit music video. Gesaffelstein has worked alongside, Tiga, Miss Kittin, Lana Del Rey, Daft Punk, and produced two tracks on Yeezus. No amateur to the music scene, Gesaffelstein’s Pursuit video is a great sample of an audible world and visual world coming together.

Michel Gondry is a bit of an imaginative wizard when it comes to art directed music videos, pretty much putting together some of the most famous music videos of the last two decades (White Stripes, Radiohead, Foo Fighters' "Everlong", Bjork, etc). He has made feature films like "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "Science of Sleep" that follow on this DIY, handmade visual effect style, and his new music video for Metronomy's "Love Letters" fits the bill, albeit with a little more set painting...
