In which a bee stings a pianist's hand and all musical hell breaks loose

"Alfonso Muskedunder", an animated video by Bendik Kaltenborn and Espen Friberg for the song by Norwegian DJ, songwriter, and record producer Todd Terje. A '60s jazz influenced (yes that's 7/8 time) hodge-podge with 4 additional remixes (soundcloud) and a 'shortreel' of animated outtakes, it's the latest addition to a series of oddball-character-themed singles: "Inspector Norse", "Delorean Dynamite" and "Leisure Suit Preben".

If you listen to only one L.A.-based, Armenian-American, instrumental, electronic, Middle-Eastern, funk, hip-hop song today, make it "Sweet Temptress" [SLYT]

The Ghost in the MP3 [warning, flashing imagery] — "moDernisT" was created by salvaging the sounds and images lost to compression via the MP3 and MP4 codecs. The audio is comprised of lost mp3 compression material from the song "Tom's Diner" famously used as one of the main controls in the listening tests to develop the MP3 encoding algorithm. Here we find the form of the song intact, but the details are just remnants of the original. The video is the MP4 ghost of a corresponding video created in collaboration with Takahiro Suzuki. Thus, both audio and video are the "ghosts" of their respective compression codecs.

Katie Queen of Tennessee

This video of The Apache Relay song Katie Queen of Tennessee is great - kids from the Nashville Dance Center dancing their hearts out while the band plays a sweet country song in a 19th-century barn owned by Vince Gill and Amy Grant. And the kids aren't even dancing to the song.
