RATKING, "So It Goes"

RATKING - So It Goes

TOPS, "Way To Be Loved"

Perfume Genius, "Dirt"

Brazilian Money, "Job Slob"

Now watch this: An actress in a jacuzzi commercial taking a big shit in the product.

WAND, "Flying Golem"

It has all the finesse of 48 hours spent with a grab bag of animation programs, but the psychedelic and loop-heavy journey through sketchbook, tablet and 8-bit is definitely working off some special frequencies.

Cibo Matto, "Deja Vu"

CIBO MATTO 'DEJA VU' (Official Music Video)

"True to form, their New York layover is a strange excursion, filmed by Jean Claude Billmaier on an Xbox Kinect camera."
