Best Music Videos - Week 27 2013
So America turned 237-years-young. Where were you? Were you jellyfish acid tripping? Getting kindergarten in the club? Did you mine some beats at a gas station and get Slaughter Rico to throw a verse over it on the spot? No? You burned your hand on a sparkler and ate tubed meats. Ah, well, then best indie music videos, BitCandy friends - wink - we're here for you.
B.o.B - 'HeadBand ft. 2 Chainz'
It's like 'American Beauty' meets ghetto thug rap in which B.o.B. attempts to deflower a whole suburb full of Mena Suvaris. 'Murrica!
Sander van Doom - 'Neon'
Time to go back to your local aquarium and trip your balls off in a jellyfish trance. All this is missing is a cheshire cat.
The Lonely Island - 'Go Kindergarten'
'Mad Max' club nazis are entertaining. But dangerous. Very dangerous. And demoralizing. Still haven't digested the 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' plug, either, despite Andy Samberg's warrior sense of humor.

Slaughter Rico and Mr. Green - 'Mr.ã‚°ãƒªãƒ¼ãƒ³ã®ã‚¹ãƒˆãƒªãƒ¼ãƒˆãƒ©ã‚¤ãƒ´'
Pretty damn fly. More organic beats than a Whole Foods. Slaughter Rico keeps the "street life" tale legit, too.
Mood Rings - 'The Line'
Another 'American Beauty' tieback, this time without a cryptic Kevin Spacey muscling up the joint, but rather an amazing time-capsule of a Reaganomics bygone era only John Hughes could soundtrack better than this hazy dream-pop exhibit.
Kid Francescoli - 'Blow Up'
Go see about a Lynchian girl. Kid Francescoli, you are the mystery jam.
Patterns - 'Sunny Days'
Get it scarface meatheads, get that American dream. The world is your monkey meat and waterfall - damn, it was just a dream.
Gotye - 'The Making of Easy Way Out'
Just to show you how boring your life is, king ear-worm and crew debut this nine-month montage of just how creative minds are the best minds, with stellar Michel Gondry Sweded tricks left and right.
Post-vids pop quiz: You're Mr. Green and equipped with the beat-mining skills to pay the bills, where would you "kill that shit live from the streets?"
