Music videos: some cutesy, come apocalyptic, most in-between

She & Him - "Don't Look Back"

Zooey Deschanel is just way too cute in this retro video. It's the world of today as imagined by the world of yesterday...but filmed in the world of today. It's a fun video, and I totally want an inflatable guitar now.

Matt & Kim - "Cameras"

As happy-smiley as this duo's videos usually are, I am pleasantly surprised by this video. You wouldn't think two usually happy people could engage in such epic fighting, awesome...

Destroyer - "Kaputt"

This video came out a couple of weeks ago, but I only just discovered Destroyer and thinks it's a great video. It's a teen dream (of a different and much better kind), but then I gets really weird. You know that kid had to love filming the opening part.

Nicole Atkins - "Vultures"

This video's even older, but it's also a great one. Her voice is great, she has an awesome blues vibe to her. Watch her as she walks around the neighborhood, gathering disaffected townspeople.

Talib Kweli - "Cold Rain"

An apocalyptic video for a song critical of much of modern times. Some disaster has turned Kweli into a lone scavenger gathering remnants of human life.

R.E.M. - "Mine Smell Like Honey"

This is technically a "lyric video." It's pretty much what it sounds like, it shows the lyrics in some interesting, artistic way. It was created by R.E.M., though, and it's pretty cool. Nice song, too.
