The music video for “Sledgehammer” by Rihanna, a song used to promote the upcoming Star Trek movie, and named for a tool that they probably don’t use all that much in the 23rd century, has been released. And now I mostly wish Rihanna was the villain of the movie.
Sure, it’s Monday, and Mondays suck. But I think we can all celebrate being near the end of the worst day of the week with a little slice of complete insanity, can’t we?
If you prefer to ease into Mondays, maybe with a little email, or some light filing, then you might not want to watch the music video for Tilt Six’s latest track. Directed by Kota Yamaji, the video an absolute mind-trip, complete with some possibly NSFW CGI nudity. Trust me—that skin will be the least upsetting part…
You know those old machines where you drop a coin in and it starts whirring and spinning and everything comes to life and you’re supposed to have fun as you watch the little people move in a set pattern because that’s the only form of entertainment that exists? This music video for Jane Bordeaux’s ‘Ma’agalim’…
This is absolutely gorgeous. For the music video for Ralf Hildenbeutel’s Disco, director Boris Seewald had animators and dancers come up with 1,250 paintings on paper that moved like one continuos dance but also had them draw it in a style that was different each time so it feels like you’re watching something…
I was thinking of posting this new music video from Coheed and Cambria with the headline “This is the best Batman v Superman trailer yet!” but I didn’t want anyone to miss it, thinking it was merely more film footage. So please do watch this tale of a Times Square Batman and Superman meeting for the first time, and…
REO Speedwagon were a staple of super-squishy soft rock in the 80s, and I guess they were among the pioneers of high-concept music videos. But yeesh. I had never fully realized how skin-crawling their video for “I Can’t Fight This Feeling” actually is. Yeeeeeesh.
“Voodoo in My Blood” is the latest single off Massive Attack’s new Ritual Spirit EP. In this Ringan Ledwidge-directed video, Gone Girl actor Rosamund Pike encounters a floating orb in a subway station with ill intentions.
This new music video from the electro-rocker band Saverne is a great blend of Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic stuff with psychedelic strangeness. It reminds me a bit of The Gone Away World by Nick Harkaway.
“Wide Open” is the latest music video from the British electronic duo The Chemical Brothers. In this Dom & Nic-directed video, dancer Sonoya Mizuno (who many of you will remember from Ex Machina) slowly morphs into a synthetic version of herself.
For some reason, Rick Springfield decided to freeze himself in the 1980s, only to be accidentally woken up in 2016. It’s a glorious future with strange aliens and dance moves.
Seriously, Hollywood keeps making weird-ass fairytale movies. And they really ought to take a note from this insane new Taylor Swift video for “Out of the Woods,” which does for fairytales what her “Bad Blood” vid did for action movies.
You know what your day is missing? Existential angst from the appendix. Which is what “Body of Songs: The Appendix” provides, in the form of an anthropomorphized appendix singing and dreaming about being cut out.
Weird Al made a splash with his latest album Mandatory Fun last year, and he’s been on the road ever since. He’s just released his latest music video that compiles all of his wacky concert intros.
The works of artist James Turrell have been described as mind-altering experiences that contort reality and change people’s ability to perceive truth. Apparently this happened to Drake, who after seeing Turrell’s art in person, copied it almost exactly in a new video.
‘If I Move To Mars’ is the latest song from New Zealand artist Thomas Oliver, and it comes with a great video of an astronaut jamming out as he spins away in orbit. The world needs more Apollo-styled guitars.
In PilotPriest’s video for their song The Last Goodbye, an astronaut goes off on a desperate chase after her companion jets off into space.
Have you ever watched a music video for a popular song and thought you could’ve done a much better job? Much to the chagrin of all your social media followers, with Triller, a new app for iOS, you can easily shoot and share your own version—no editing skills required.
This video for “Sound & Color” by the Alabama Shakes is just a brilliant tribute to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, including lots of one-point perspective shots and some lovely white corridors. And it has an amazing storyline about an astronaut who wakes from cryogenic sleep to discover an unpleasant truth.
