Mr. Oizo is back with a brand new LP, and he got his alter ego to direct a trailer for said album. I’m sure All Wet is an excellent album and yada yada yada. I don’t care about all that right now because this trailer is fanf**kingtastic. Why don’t all albums get trailers? And why aren’t all trailers this good, music or otherwise?

It’s no secret that Swedish duo DOG ORCHESTRA is one of our favorite up and coming artists here at The Guard, and we are extremely excited to share their brand new video for their single, Broke, with you today. It’s the latest single off of their debut EP, and it’s a bone chilling and stripped down track that you won’t forget.
Swedish art-punk band THE TEDDYBEARS totally grabbed our attention this week with their funky dance-inspired track, The Best You Ever Had, and its eye popping new video.
All signs point to the soundtrack being the best thing to come out of the ensemble-train-wreck known as Suicide Squad. And the best thing to come out of the soundtrack is the Skrillex and Rick Ross collab, “Purple Lamborghini.” The video also lives up to the absurdly high expectations the OWSLA crew has set for themselves.
In our digital age people are always writing things (usually in all CAPS) like This is INSANE!!!, but the video for Petite Meller's Milk Bath actually is completely bonkers. This is one of those rare instances where the hyperbole is totally justified. Milk Bath was shot in what appears to be Senegal, as I’m pretty sure the pink body of water is Lake Retba.
At its best, art has the ability to change your perspective and redefine how you see the world. Or it can help you empathize with others by showing their perspective. Kalacoma’s latest video, Kaleidoscoper, achieves this by allowing the viewer to experience what a seizure looks and feels like.
Holy Fuck decided to do something this year they haven’t done in 6, release an album. The sublime Congrats kicks off the long Memorial Day weekend, headlined by the standout single, Tom Tom. As we just now got around to consuming the album, we also just got around to watching the Michael Leblanc-directed video for Tom Tom.
U-Turn is the new video from Tegan and Sara and the second single off their 8th studio LP, Love You to Death. Much like Boyfriend, U-Turn finds the band doubling down on the synth pop, Cyndi Lauper aesthetic they tried on for 2013’s Heartthrob. Seth Bogart directed the 80’s inspired music video. The song kicks and the visuals work. What else would you expect at this point from these two?
The Flaming Lips offer up a pretty straightforward arrangement of Space Oddity, or at least straightforward by their standards. The video includes two women dressed like nuns in a cemetery, a funeral/church service preformed by the Lips to an audience made up entirely of white balloons, and a laser light show.
You ever stumble across something magical on the internet and wonder with a mixture of shock and embarrassment how you hadn’t seen it earlier? That’s totally us with Acid Rain, the truly remarkable video from EDM producer Lorn. We saw it, instantly fell in love, and had to share it.
Karate is the first single we’ve heard off Metal Resistance, and it’s as effortlessly catchy as everything else BabyMetal does. The video for Karate finds our heroine fighting martial arts masters, ghosts, and other monsters in fanatically fashionable outfits in a dramatically lit setting. It’s EPIC. Or at the very least, highly watchable.
