Clark drops nightmarish, entrancing video for 'Winter Linn'

winter-linn.jpg

This clip—the first featuring music from English producer Clark’s new self-titled LP—has everything: Psychotically titled beats, black and white 3D animation, oscillating impaled babies. “Winter Linn” is the music video Bill Hader’s iconic character Stefon sees in his nightmares.

Most of “Winter Linn” features a somewhat creepy assortment of objects—Easter Island’s moai statues, a double helix, a human heart, chomping vampire teeth, the aforementioned baby—as they spin and expand to Clark’s not-quite-club-ready tunes. Clark may have dropped after Halloween, but it’s filled with creepy, unnerving music.

Clark eventually introduces a warbling piano melody as the visual cuts to kissing marble angel statues and a gestating fetus. Stefon just woke up in a cold sweat.

Indigenous activists preview MTV's 'Rebel Music: Native America'

Marginalized peoples and social activists have for generations turned to music to articulate grievances, express identities, revive cultures, start movements and, ultimately, affect real change.

MTV’s docu-series Rebel Music takes a look at populations around the world who are currently using music to voice messages that the world needs to hear. The premiere episode focuses on young Native North Americans using rap and pop to empower their generation to fight for their people and their land. READ FULL STORY

Could you win this Beyonce 'Jeopardy!' category?

Tuesday’s Jeopardy! categories included U.S. city nicknames, literary awards, weights & measures, and… Beyoncé.

The questions aren’t too tougheven a casual Bey fan could probably get all the answers correct — but it’s entertaining watching the evening’s players very seriously answer questions like, “In an SNL skit, Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg, in leotards and heels, replaced Bey’s female dancers in this video.” (What is “Single Ladies”?)
