Arcade Fire debut dreamy 'Afterlife' video: Watch it here

Arcade Fire have always been serious about visual presentation, but for the images surrounding their new album Reflektor, they’ve really gone to another level. Such is the case with the video for the just-released video for “Afterlife.”

The clip, directed by Emily Kai Bock (who has also done videos for Grizzly Bear and Grimes), tracks the dream lives of a father and his two sons and features lots of deep-focus black and white cinematography.

Because it’s a song from Reflektor, it’s also over seven minutes long and aggressively melancholy, so prepare to spill a few tears on your lunch salad.

Check out the video for Arcade Fire’s “Afterlife” below.  READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga stares into our souls in 'ARTPOP' YouTube film

LAdy-Gaga.jpg

“This album is a celebration…My pain exploding in electronic music…It’s heavy, but after I listen to it, I feel happy again. I feel lighter,” Lady Gaga waxes meaningfully at the start of her new short film, An ARTPOP Film Starring Lady Gaga. Part commercial, part music video, and part fashion shoot, the film is directed, like much of her recent images and videography, by Dutch fashion photography duo Inez & Vindoodh.

In the clip, she dances, cries, rubs dirt on herself, whips her hair back and forth, and even makes out with her wig’s mannequin head. But Gaga spends most of the video staring straight at the camera, rocking every look from Blue Steel to Le Tigra.

The video also serves as a survey of the latest looks in Gaga’s arsenal, which includes everything from the Gilding Primal Instinct teeth cuff bracelet/grill to the long white dreadlocks previously rocked by the Merovingian’s henchmen in Matrix Reloaded.

Broken-Bells-clip.jpg

A few weeks ago, we tipped you off to a nifty short film from Broken Bells (Shins leader James Mercer and producer Danger Mouse) titled “Part One: Angel and the Fool,” starring Kate Mara and Anton Yelchin. It was a trippy good time — and now you can watch the second installment, available exclusively here.

Titled “Holding On For Life,” the new video was, like the first one, directed by Jacob Gentry and made in conjunction with The Creators Project, with Mara and Yelchin once again leading the way. It features music from the upcoming Broken Bells album, also titled After the Disco, due out January 14 of next year.

Take a look at it below:

Backstreet Boys 'Show 'Em (What You're Made Of)' music video features shirtless Brian, AJ

Backstreet-Boys.jpg

After wrapping their North American and Japan tour, but before launching their 2014 European leg, the Backstreet Boys are taking the time to show us, quite literally, what they’re made of.

The Boys took to their Facebook page to release their latest music video for the song “Show ‘Em (What You’re Made Of) off their album, In A World Like This. The song, which was written by Kevin and AJ, is dedicated to their kids. (Other than Nick, they’re all dads now.)

“The inspiration for AJ and I writing this song was our children,” Kevin said in a release. “The innocence and wonder in their eyes is so precious. I want them to keep it forever and I want to rediscover it within myself. No limits … No fear.”

And keeping in theme with “no limits,” the video features a shirtless Brian and AJ. They will not be limited or restricted by clothing, and I for one, support their decision.

Watch the video for “Show ‘Em (What You’re Made Of)” below: READ FULL STORY

Check out Amos Lee's lyric video for 'Chill in the Air' -- EXCLUSIVE

All these newfangled technicolor music videos are overrated: For his latest clip, Amos Lee is going greyscale.

In the new lyric video for “Chill in the Air” — the Alison Krauss-featuring second single from his recent Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song — Lee borrowed footage a black-and-white “marriage training film” from 1950 called This Charming Couple. How quaint!

And you can watch it all exclusively here. Take a gander at the “Chill in the Air” clip below:

Kanye West makes Kim Kardashian star of 'Bound 2': Watch it here

Kanye West is on quite the charm offensive.

Yesterday, ‘Ye dropped by a college in Boston — well, not in Boston, but nearby — to give not only a surprisingly self-deprecating speech but also free tickets to his Yeezus tour stop at TD Garden.

Then, this morning, he stopped by Ellen‘s studio to premiere his latest video for “Bound 2,” starring his fiancée Kim Kardashian, who rides on a motorcycle with her man and without a helmet.

Oh, and she’s topless.

And with that, let’s get straight to the video:

Rihanna releases sparse, trippy 'What Now' video: Watch it here

Shockingly, it’s looking like 2013 will be the first year since 2008 that hasn’t delivered new Rihanna album.

But she’s hardly AWOL; she’s just continuing to work singles from last year’s Unapologetic — and now the latest entry just landed on the Internet.

After a few weeks of speculation (and a lot of social media-related gaffes), the video for “What Now” premiered this morning. Filmed in Phuket, Thailand, the clip features Rihanna in a room all alone (except when she’s joined by some shadow selves) going through an emotional exorcism so powerful that it apparently causes actual lightning strikes.

It’s all pretty interesting, and the last minute or so feels like an American Horror Story title sequence waiting to happen. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

Lily Allen defends her new video against racism charges

hard-out-here

Once upon a time (i.e., about a month ago), accusations of racism of were thrown at New Zealand’s Lorde for her chart-owning single “Royals,” a song that made some barbed observations about the luxury cars and expensive liquors that litter our pop-culture landscape.

British popstress Lily Allen’s now getting some of the same flack for her new “Hard Out Here” video, which covers many of the same themes. The British Commonwealth singers can’t catch a break!

As with the Lorde kerfuffle, the claims against Allen seem a little dubious, but we’ll summarize both sides of the argument for you below.

Watch Drake's 'Worst Behavior' video, featuring cameos by his dad, Juicy J, and more

Drake may be the greatest rapper alive. Perhaps he’s also the hardest working man in show business. And when it comes to making music videos, he’s Johnny on the spot: Always ready with ideas—some great, others head-scratching, and many of them pretty damn funny.

For “Worst Behavior,” a monster of a song, he has made a sprawling 10-minute video. He calls in—or grants—a bunch of favors, creating cameos for his dad, Dennis Graham, and Juicy J and Project Pat, who feature opposite OVO crew members Ryan and O’Brien a skit that’s certainly hilarious enough to watch once: READ FULL STORY

Miley Cyrus lights up onstage at MTV European Music Awards -- VIDEO

Remember when you were so emotionally disturbed by Miley Cyrus’ twerking at the VMAs you wanted to remove your eyeballs with a rusty spoon? Or the time you rushed your family down to your homemade bomb shelter after viewing her “Wrecking Ball” video? Nope, me neither. But, as previously reported, earlier today the pop star continued her year of Offending People Who Enjoy Being Offended By Things Miley Cyrus Does when she lit up what most definitely did not look like a cigarette at the MTV European Music Awards in Amsterdam, birthplace of the marijuana-dispensing coffee shop and Kirk Douglas (although only one of those facts seems relevant to this story).
