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

Antony and the Johnsons – “Cut the World”

It stars Willem Dafoe and it’s been endorsed by Yeezy. ‘Nuff said.

Black Moth Super Rainbow – “Windshield Smasher”

Here’s what one couple’s WORST DAY EVER looks like.

Blonds – “The Bad Ones”

Here’s a challenge for you: Turn off the lights. Sit in the middle of the room alone. Then, slouch in your chair while you watch this like Nicolas Cage in 8MM. Emotions are optional.

Candace interviews J Mascis (of Dinosaur Jr.)

Clever promotion always deserves applause. Having Candace of Women & Women First interview Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis was beyond clever, it was sort of genius. Now, if only it were longer than a minute; perhaps we’ll see Mr. Mascis in Portlandia‘s third season?

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – “Shame”

Director Jonah Schwartz follows up “Thuggin” with another Gibbs & Madlib joint. Stylish and well shot, the latest video teaches a valuable lesson for those with multiple special lady friends.

Jukebox the Ghost – “Somebody”

Typically one only brings a beach towel, some sunscreen, and a good novel to the beach. Next time, however, I’ll have to remember to bring a drum and some synchronized dancers. Next time.

Lower Dens – “Candy”

There’s something subliminally evil about corporate outings. This one takes that idea to a literal level, but damn if it doesn’t look fun. Zip-lining anyone?

My Morning Jacket – “Outta My System”

It’s the battle of the beards: Jim James v. Zach Galifianakis. What starts in reality in a moon-soaked desert quickly becomes an animated journey into hell. So, it’s like Cool World. Too obscure of a reference?

Tom Waits – “Hell Broke Luce”

Okay, so Mr. Waits’ big announcement wasn’t a tour, but he did deliver on one sick, twisted video. Two words: shark submarine. And no, that’s not a reference to a deli sandwich, either.

Zambri – “From An Angle”

Q: How would a trip to the car wash look with Quentin Tarantino behind the lens? A: Watch above.
