The Dead Weather - Treat Me Like Your Mother (Video)

Yep, Jack White's got another band. This video is pretty bad ass though. It's directed by Jonathan Glazer, and it's got machine guns. The album Horehound is in stores now.

Devo - Don't Shoot (I'm a Man) (Video)

I've been pretty excited about the prospect of a new Devo album coming sometime this year (apparently, it's actually been delayed until 2010), and yet somehow the fact that they had recently released a brand new video managed to slip right past me. "Don't Shoot (I'm a Man)" was among a handful of new songs that they debuted at SXSW in March, and will appear on their forthcoming album Fresh.

This slick animated video was directed by Gerald Casale and Davy Force, and if you ask me, the music already sounds better than anything on their 1990 album Smooth Noodle Maps. Fingers crossed... I must see these guys live before I die!
