“A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.” -Willy Wonka

The Big Pink – “Lose Your Mind”

Dr. Dog singer/bassist Toby Leaman is one sadistic dude. Why else would he kidnap and torture his entire band? But I guess on the grand scale of torturing people, getting flour and confetti thrown in your face isn’t exactly like spending a weekend at Guantanamo Bay.

Finn Riggins – “Plural”

Here, Finn Riggins entice you to come and see the wonders of Idaho with shots of rugged and pastoral scenery. Surprisingly enough, however, not one potato.

Here We Go Magic – “How Do I Know”

This video takes 2007’s Lars and the Real girl to its logical next step. I wonder how happy Ryan Gosling’s character would have been had he gotten to bust some moves with his not-so-human lover before she “died”. Oh, spoiler alert.

Nas – “The Don”

It’s kind of rare that you see Nas boast so openly about his considerable wealth. At least more rare than, say, the notoriously flashy Kayne West or Jay-Z. Yet even stepping out of his comfort zone, the Queensbridge MC still knows how to kill it. Then again, that’s why they call him the Illmatic One.

Paul & Linda McCartney – “Heart Of The Country” (Remastered)

Beatles Fun Fact of the Day: The Sheepdog seen in the video is the subject of McCartney’s White Album deep cut, “Martha My Dear”.

Perfume Genius – “Dark Parts”

Check out this video from Perfume Genius if you’re in the mood for a touching portrait of a son’s love for his mother. It also might just make you feel guilty about the crappy $10 bouquet of flowers you got your mom for Mother’s Day.

POP ETC – “Live It Up”

Chris Chu of the newly renamed POP ETC dons a tight tank top and utilizes the close-up in this new video. It’s actually the perfect visual accompaniment for this hipsterific R&B slow jam.

Simian Mobile Disco – “Put Your Hands Together”

Depending on how cultured you are, you’ll either see this video as a brilliant piece of computer-generated surrealist art or as a level of Space Invaders.

The Static Jacks – “Young Guns”

The fifties were a simpler time. There was no internet, gas only cost a few cents a gallon, and familial disputes were solved by good old living room boxing matches.

Tennis – “My Better Self”

This local cabaret bar doesn’t seem to be very enthralled by Tennis and their squeaky clean indie pop. They stare blankly back at the band even as frontwoman Alaina Moore showcases some killer dance moves.
