Thanks for the links, HR.

I have one I'd like to add: directed by MeFi's own sleepy pete, it's Don't Go Stop.

The last three are all fantastic. And that last one I'll be sending to everyone I know.

Holy crap, this video by Keith Schofield is so good it deserves it's own front page.

tfmm, I genuinely can't tell if you're snarking or not.

No love for the Wareheim?!

Don't forget this one.

Seriously, thought the Vincent Moon was great.

Good vids. What does it say that I was enthralled and fascinated by the Cat Solen one for the first minute or so, and then just couldn't continue without cringing as soon as the actual Bright Eyes song came on?

I mean, I know I'm a hipster, but I like similar stuff to what Oberst does, and don't mean the guy any harm or anything. There's just some reason that Bright Eyes is just unlistenably repellent to me. Like something fucking horrible that I can't put my finger on. Does anybody else get this same feeling?

More in-depth in the SRO interview with the author of the article.
For your monthly fix of the good stuff, try the antville-curated monthly digests. (Their video podcast is a little erratic.)
Hey, even George W. Bush cares about music videos!

Hah. Hadn't noticed the little cameo by Charlie the Unicorn in the Pork and Beans video before. Nice.

For anyone who likes their music videos, I can't recommend the Palm Pictures Directors Series enough. Especially the Mark Romanek and Michel Gondry DVDs. The others are great for the music videos alone, but the Romanek and Gondry ones are the most thorough with behind the scenes, commentaries and extra content.

Toe Jam is my new favorite.

Thanks, Schofield's 3 feet deep is one of my favorite videos ever.

I liked them better when they were called Neutral Milk Hotel and didn't suck.

This is my favorite Takeaway Show. (Here is more My Brightest Diamond goodness.) Also, no discussion of "new music video" is complete without mention of Black Cab Sessions. (St. Vincent; Elvis Perkins.)

BrotherCaine: I had no idea that was by Schofield, I love that video! (think I saw it through a link here at metafilter first)

(For boffins, here's Jonathan Glazer's parents thoughts on his videos.)

That Weezer video seemed too desperate, I had to get away.

Mmmm...may I very quietly suggest this young chap as one to watch for the future?

Toe Jam is my new favorite.

That song is a Wrath of Khan-level earworm, and I cannot stop humming it. It's by Brighton Port Authority, which is a new Fatboy Slim anarcho-syndicalist commune kind of thing. Their site has several other songs posted, and a cool fan-made video for Toe Jam.

I got hooked on Schofields work after seeing Pi back in the day. Also a big fan of all the other ones the site. Thanks for bringing me back to the new stuff!

Mmmm, a David Byrne song I haven't heard. Set to a cool video. Always a pick-me-up. I'll have to check out more stuff by Brighton Port Authority.
