So many music videos...

I try to post new music videos whenever I get to four by artists that I really like. It was only a few days ago that I last posted and, already, a lot of new videos have been released. Of course, with a lot of albums set to be released in the coming months, I guess that's to be expected.

Crystal Castles & Robert Smith - "I'm Not in Love"

This collaboration between Crystal Castles and the frontman of The Cure has been out for a while, but the music video was only recently released. It has that hazy, distorted effect that has been used quite extensively by a lot of indie artists lately, which is really starting to annoy me (it makes me feel a little sick), but the song itself is great.

Peter Bjorn & John - "Breaker Breaker"

This is the first song off their new album, Gimme Some, due out in March. It's a frantic video, matching the frantic pace of the song. I don't know why this stands out to me, but the part of the video I love most is the beginning drumroll when the drummer leans down to beat on the bass.

Best Coast - "Crazy for You"

Yes, exactly what the world needs, and LOLCat video. I may I just say, the lead singer is just adorable.

Wanda Jackson - "Thunder on the Mountain"

A great rockabilly cover of a Dylan song featuring modern guitar god, Jack White. Miss Jackson has just about the cutest voice ever, amazing song.

Magnetic Man featuring John Legend - "Getting Nowhere"

A fairly stark video and song, featuring the four motocross bikemen of the Apocalypse. Magnetic Man is a dubstep supergroup, but what drew me to the song was the featured vocals of one of my favorites, John Legend.
