Youth Lagoon is a new band that has won over many of our friends recently. 22-year-old Trevor Powers has been gaining attention for his pleasing indie rock melodies, and this video directed by Tyler T. Williams is quite fantastic. All together, this is not a bad four minutes and forty seconds to spend staring at your screen and listening to your speakers.

Jayson Scott Musson, frontman of the clever and satirical rap group Plastic Little, branches his creative touch beyond music. His creative vision that is apparent in his music is also apparent in his visual art. His series Barack Obama Battles the Pink Robots is a great example of such a vision.
