Watch as Haim take over the (fictional) Dallas Murphy show, hosted by SNL’s Vanessa Bayer, in the music video for ‘My Song 5’ featuring a guest verse from A$AP Ferg. With appearances from Ezra Koenig, Ke$ha, Big SeanGrimes and even their parents(!), the visual is pretty hilarious with cotton-ball-phobias, mime-fetishes and more. Take a look above!

Flying Lotus returns with animated and fully psychedelic new album teaser featuring some of the mind-altering new material from his forthcoming album You’re Dead! Dubbed as a pioneer from the get go, it’s rare to see an artist live up to their buzz like FlyLo has and is. Known for fearlessly blending the golden traditions of hip hop, electronica and jazz, this new project feels even fuller and more established than his previous releases – which considering his catalogue is quite the feat already.

Ibeyi follow up their ethereal debut ‘Oya‘ with  ‘River’, a choppy pop track which sees the twin sisters share spoken/sung verses before coming together in the chorus. That’s the Ed Morris directed video above, a dedication to Oshun, the river Goddess, picturing the siblings submerged underwater whilst performing the track.

 

New York singer/songwriter I/O (Ayo) evokes all kinds of sorrow with ‘Face With No Name’, his latest single. Holding a personal sentiment, that being a loss of a friend, the track’s beauty is spirited by its slow and sombre production, carried by the singer’s pensive vocals and mournful lyrics. Peak the video above, and look out for his second solo mixtape, the follow-up to 2012’s Isolation, out soon.

BANKS continues her slew of dark videos with this new one for ‘Beggin For Thread’, the latest track to have surfaced from her forthcoming debut album Goddess out this September. Shot in stark black and white, the clip captures the track’s intense nature to perfection ; take a look up top!

I must admit I wasn’t expecting to love Common’s new album Nobody’s Smiling (out now) as much as I do. Because as much as I loved Lonnie’s Kanye-era (Be still stands), I grew a little tired by The Dreamer / The Believer and I’ve been a die-hard Common fan since Can I Borrow a Dollar, not to mention I belong to the minority group that considers both Electric Circus and Universal Mind Control among the most underrated albums of his career. Yeah, I said it.

Anyways, turns out Common and No I.D still have mad chemistry because Nobody’s Smiling is fire from top to bottom. The LP’s second single ‘Diamonds’ which features an infectious hook and confident verse from Big Sean is a strong example of the richly produced beats and affected flow that both producer and emcee bring to the table. Welcome back sir.

South London producer/singer Palmistry recently released ‘Protector SE5’ his second Mixpak single, and now goes his video for it. The bouncy jitters in the tracks production juxtapose the clip’s slow-mo vibe.

Alt-J have just shared the music video for ‘Hunger of the Pine’, the lead single from their forthcoming sophomore effort This Is All Yours out this September. The trio have enlisted Nabil Elderkin to direct the edgy visual, and he’s captured the track’s sentiment of hope and yearning for love to perfection.

If you aren’t already in the mood for summer, this surely will. American producer/vocalist La+ch teams up with Coleman Hell and Jayme on ‘You Are My Summer’, a hard-hitting cacophony of smooth electronics ensuing that overall, feel good vibe. With watermelon spitting, ice cream slurping and bubblegum blowing; the visual too, is a treat.

Låpsley created a buzz earlier this year with the elegant ‘Station‘ which she continued with her latest single ‘Painter (Valentine)’. Today, the 17 year old singer/producer revealed the Harvey Pearson directed music video to the delicate and ethereal track,  following a couple facing their problems. This is some promising stuff, take a look up top.
