Moby feat Wayne Coyne - 'The Perfect Life'

Wayne Coyne and Moby in mariachi suits walking through a concrete jungle. The simple happiness for that sentence could end there. But that would sell so short the creatures that come out for this rooftop super song that came out of sunset nowhere. This is what it's about, people - the perfect life.

 

Natasha Khan & Jon Hopkins - 'Garden's Heart'

As if you needed another reason to wrap your head around the beauty of Natasha Khan's ethereal mantra, here's a goddess in a bathtub becoming one with nature.

Omar Souleyman - 'Leh Jani'

You could read those viral articles by accredited news organizations answering the dumb questions your oblivious American self has to the conflicts in Syria, or you can watch party king Omar Souleyman do his mustache jammy jams in his homeland. You decide. Which makes you even more beautifully American.

 

Parov Stelar feat. Marvin Gaye - 'Keep on Dancing'

Sell out like Rocky when he got that damn robot and an unnamed boxer who probably once helped grilled your meat products and shabam -> all your dreams, gone, a blitz of soulless greed.

 

IV44 Howling - 'Shortline'

Wait for it, the grainy film depressions will break, and the colors will explode, always, always.

 

Nirvana - 'Heart-Shaped Box (Director's Cut)'

Damn it, here we go with another banner memorial year in frustrations with those taken with us too damn soon. Dance on little Pope-robe girl, dance on.

Ben Caplan & the Casual Smokers - 'Conduit'

The only thing that would make this clandestine train ride any cooler would be Micheal Keaton in a Beetlejuice suit eating a bug.

 

MT Warning - 'Forward Miles'

It must be hard being beautiful in absolutely everything you do, like a perpetual slow-motion provocative dream.

 

Grouplove - 'Borderlines and Aliens'

So the full animated series of this stringy dude and his bone-loving dog is getting picked up for distribution when?

 

Hydrophilic

Hey man, whatever helps you get your domesticity on. Otherwise, a mask like that is only good for two things - murder and robberies.

 

Sleep Party People - 'A Dark God Heart'

So here's one more, somber tripped out narrative with a psychotic outcome. Hopefully a lesson learned in the effects of water on lungs, and the purpose of scuba gear.

 

PAPA - 'Young Rut'

Reason #143 why your socks don't get lost in the washing machine, they just run off like bandits sometimes and don't always make it back.

Is there a company that makes creepy caricature masks of oneself? This needs to be a viral sensation - people wearing masks attempting to function in society. But what song, what song?
