The best videos of the week are chicken soup for your bad YouTube flu. We don't usually include live videos in this roundup, but we had to make an exception for Tanya Tagaq's unreal Polaris Prize performance. Watch  that and four other great ones below.

Tanya Tagaq, "Uja / Umingmak" live at the Polaris Prize gala

Polaris Music Prize Gala 2014 - Full show

Once the Inuk throat singer and sonic experimenter took the Polaris Prize, it was hard not to feel just good in general. Yeah, it's a concert performance. But it's also the only videoed music you absolutely have to watch from the past seven days.

Walter TV, "Master Ludi"


Remember when Liars found themselves in Looney Tunes? Walter TV enter that same blended pixel dimension with even fewer frames of reference to hold onto.

Brazilian Money, "Job Slob"

Brazilian Money - Job Slob

It's time to rethink working environments. Didn't Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs teach us anything? Ugh. At least Garrett Johnson's here to show us how it's done.

Now watch this: Jacuzzi poop

WAND, "Flying Golem"

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.

Now watch this: The now 2nd weirdest animated video of the year, for Kool A.D.'s "Word."

Cibo Matto, "Deja Vu"

CIBO MATTO 'DEJA VU' (Official Music Video)

No one making pop music like Cibo Matto, even though they just returned after a fifteen year hiatus with their new album Hotel Valentine. True to form, their New York layover is a strange excursion, filmed by Jean Claude Billmaier on an Xbox Kinect camera.

Now watch this: Their classic video for "Sugar Water" directed by Michel Gondry.
