Muse - Resistance (Video)

The latest Muse video consists of mostly live concert footage, and yet still somehow manages to be pretty epic. I guess that should come as no surprise... it is Muse after all. Directed by Wayne Isham.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Skeletons (Video)

The YYYs go goth in this new video from director Barney Clay (who also happens to be Karen O.'s boyfriend). January seems like an appropriate month to release a video for a song that was written during a snow storm.

Also check out a making of featurette here.

N.A.S.A. - O Pato feat. Kool Kojak & DJ Babão (Video)

The latest video from one of my favourite albums of '09 is a graffiti-style animated interlude featuring intoxicated animals and a pair of astronauts. I suppose it's NSFW, but just barely. Directed by Didiu Rio Branco and Robson Minghini.

M.I.A. - Space Odyssey (Video)

Yes this mysterious new M.I.A. video that originated from her Twitter account a few days ago is, in fact, a new song called "Space Odyssey". So says Pitchfork, anyway. It will appear on her next, currently untitled, album, which is due out sometime this summer.

Ok Go - This Too Shall Pass (Video)

Jay pointed me toward the latest video masterpiece by Ok Go (aka the band that did the treadmill video). Directed by Brian L. Perkins, this one was performed live with the help of the Notre Dame marching band. Pretty amazing stuff, and likely to be another viral hit.
