- Jan 16, 2015
Death, celebrities, Scandinavian mythology and Magic Johnson playing basketball on a slice of pizza. It must be this week's 5 best videos!

Sleater-Kinney, "No Cities To Love"

Sleater-Kinney - No Cities To Love

With help from Sarah Silverman, Fred ArmisenAndy SambergJ Mascis, Ellen Page, Gerard Way, and more, Sleater-Kinney will now reach hundreds of thousands of fans who may never listen to another Sleater-Kinney song. The Sub Pop marketing team were too busy having a champagne bottle popping distance competition to comment. 

Flying Lotus, "Coronus, The Terminator"

Flying Lotus - Coronus, The Terminator

Watch the spectral, ghostly, surrealistic clip above and hope there will be more videos from the record. 

Keita Juma ft. Brendan Philip, "Come Over"

KEITA JUMA - COME OVER FT. BRENDAN PHILIP (VIDEO)

Keita Juma never seems to take a breath as his grinding, low-pitched rhymes glide over his dark, hypnotic beats. The track is enhanced by the equally mesmerizing video directed by Sammy Rawal, who adds a possessed and animated feel to the song.

Mount Eerie, "This"

THIS by Mount Eerie (official video)

A young boy falls asleep reading a book of Scandinavian mythology (as young boys are totally wont to do) and travels mentally through a series of abstract, ambiguous images of Kubrickian scenery that on their surface are fairly innocuous, but are bone-chilling set against Elverum's ominous organ drone. 

Shabazz Palaces, "Forerunner Foray" (animated by Chad VanGaalen)

Shabazz Palaces - Forerunner Foray [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

It's probably the convenience of the Sub Pop connection, but whoever matched up Shabazz Palaces and Chad VanGaalen performed a stroke of genius. The haze gets cosmic, extending the song's reach from black stallions to the Pharaoh to Magic Johnson going Space Jam on a slice of pizza.
