As our April 2011 Art In the Streets issue is getting ready to hit newsstands, we look back at one of the great convergences of scenes when hip-hop, punk, and graffiti fused into this music video. Here you have The Clash, Fab 5 Freddy, and Futura 2000 all together on one track, with graffiti images being flashed and artists being name-dropped by both Fred and Futura. Video after the jump . .

We haven't spoke about Michel Gondry since our feature with the "The Green Hornet" director in our January 2011 issue, but we just saw that he directed a music video for Los Angeles-based trio, The Living Sisters. The video for "How Are You Doing?" features some trademark Gondry dreamlike sequences, including some airplance turbulence, laughter, and a house burning down. Watch after the jump . . .

Alexandre "Vhils" Farto just sent us his newest video, featuring some rather beautiful pyrotechnics that we think everyone can enjoy. The piece is a music video, or at least, we assume its the music video for the band Orelha Negra, and Vhils was the director. Watch it after the jump . . .

London-based Jux-contributor Butterfly was at the opening of Works On Paper, Stanley Donwood's new show at Lazarides' The Outsiders space. Must be a busy time for Mr. Donwood, as he is the artist behind the first ever "newspaper" album, as he does all the artwork for Radiohead. They are set to release said newspaper album version of The King of Limbs in May. Opening photos after the jump . . .

We have received over 10 emails this morning asking 1) have we watched the new Radiohead video for "Lotus Flower," and 2) have we listened to the early release of The King of Limbs? Yes and yes. And because it is Friday, take a break, watch the new video, and think of Stanley Donwood's Works On Paper show opening at Lazarides' The Outsiders last night in London. Video after the jump . . .

We end the work week with a music video that Fab 5 Freddy told us about this week: Blondie's "The Hardest Part." Fred was telling us about how he and LEE painted all the background and floor pieces, and Jean-Michel Basquiat came in and finished off the wall with various writings. Amazing time. Historical time. Watch the video after the jump . . .

A bit of music in the arts news. Spike Jonze (featured in Jux n100, May 2009), worked with Grammy-nominated Arcade Fire (yes, Grammy-nominated) on a short film for the Montreal band's 2010 release, The Suburbs. If you grew up in the suburbs, this album may have resonated with you. It resonated with Spike, and he made a short film about that resonation. Details after the jump . . .

A lot of people are bummed that Coachella sold out and they can't see Kanye, Lauryn Hill, and Kings of Leon (er, maybe not) at this year's festival. But Coachella is pushing their Coachella Conversations, and we enjoyed hearing the conversing of 2x Coachella artist DJ Z-Trip (friend of Juxtapoz and DJ of our Seventh Letter Issue release party) and Shepard Fairey.
