From the sounds of it, Tame Impala's new LP, Currents, out on July 17 through Modular, is going to be really good. We have been loving the releases so far, and now the new video for the track "'Cause I'm a Man" was just uploaded and its nice and pill-poppingly fun. 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. Check it after the jump.

This is a "Short film about love, dreams, and loss." At first, we thought this was a proper music video for the Flying Lotus track "A Damaging Daydream," but it turns out this is a short by Thomas McMahan that was "made utilizing rare earth metals, A nasa developed oil, and a few things found in various thrift stores. All effects for this were achieved without a computer. All done with practical special effects."

Run the Jewels just dropped their latest video, for the track "Early," one of our favorites off the RTJ2 album. The video, created by the animation and design studio Bug & Sluzzy, visualizes the Killer Mike and El-P song in simple yet perfect red, black and white.

Last Friday night, our Juxtapoz editor was one of the few lucky people to get into the very special (and free) Blur concert at the Music Hall of Williamsburg as part of Converse Rubber Tracks. The show, which was brilliant, fun, and loose, featured the band playing almost the entirety of their new LP, The Magic Whip, with a few classics in the encore. Today, we have an exclusive of the new tracks, "Lonesome Street," "New World Towers," "Ghost Ship," and the encore of "Song 2" for you to watch today. Enjoy! (And today, Thursday, May 7, we have added a special interview, the new track "Go Out," and a classic from Parklife, "Trouble in the Messenger Centre.")

This is coming from a guy who cried while watching "Field of Dreams" the other night, but this drone footage, shot over Antarctica, made me cry this morning. Maybe it was the soundtrack, the beauty of nature, life, the silence, the power, all of the above, I don't know. But I dare you to watch this and not get a little emotional.
