Here are some more new music videos that have entertained me recently.
Losers feat. Riz MC & Envy - Flush
This is a really cool video featuring the artwork of Dan Hiller. It has shades of Monty Python animation.
Yeasayer – O.N.E.
A really cool song with a music video that starts of narrative and then explodes with a typically chaotic yeasayer performance scene.
Seabear – I’ll Build You a Fire
A really innovative artistic and etherial music video. Let’s be honest, I couldn’t resist.
She and Him – In the Sun
A cute little pop song with a music video that borrows elements from classic 1960s musical films. Read more »

With the impending end of the first decade of the century looming in the distance, all one can do is take a look back at the last 10 years in music and create another list, this one ranking the best 30 albums of the last decade (With a sentence of explanation for each).
1. The Arcade Fire – Funeral
This album made baroque pop cool again, something that seemed unachievable after the Beach Boys fell apart.
2. Ryan Adams – Gold
Gold is alternative country at its very best, chocked full of sublime instrumentation and sentimental lyrics.
3. Bruce Springsteen – We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions
The Boss sings Pete Seeger and brilliance results; there is something fantastic about the combination of Springsteen’s voice and Seeger’s lyrics.
4. Yeasayer – All Hours Cymbals
All Hours Cymbals is an album for the decade lyrically, thematically, and instrumentally.
5. Jonsi and Alex – Riceboy Sleeps
Jonsi and Alex’s post-rock/ambient masterpiece is an album to listen to all the way through (8+ times) to really catch it’s flavor. Read more »
