A gruesome twosome plus more music videos

Yet another batch of music videos are out, it's a fun batch!

Two Door Cinema Club - "What You Know"

This video somehow manages to evoke 1960's pop videos, "Hey Mickey" and '90s longing emo at the same time. Nothing's better than some indie dance sequences.

Patrick Wolf - "The City"

I wouldn't think of Patrick Wolf as an artist capable of producing what could be a summer anthem, but he's done it and it's awesome. A bit more upbeat than much of his previous work, I like the shift.

Lykke Li - "I Follow Rivers"

In her second video for her upcoming album, Li is chasing a man (I assume he is the "rivers"), and boy is she determined. She even takes off her high heels and chases him the snow. It's never clear why exactly he is running, but it may be because she's dressed like death.

Sleigh Bells - "Rill Rill"

This is one of the gruesome ones. The lead singers seems pretty diabolical and has a vendetta against her bandmate, always makes for a fun video. Also, there's bleeding phone, for some reason.

No Age - "Fever Dreaming"

These guys were doing noise punk before it was cool. In this video, the going about their day seemingly unaware the room is closing in, then being destroyed, around them. It's seemingly innocuous until the very end. Let's just say there's a lot of blood.
