Childish Gambino "Clapping For The Wrong Reasons" (Hiro Murai, dir.) [short film]

This teaser for the upcoming short-film Clapping For The Wrong Reason doesn't provide enough meat to really determine what it's gonna be — perhaps we need one of those "In a world where..." voiceovers — but it does look intriguing with a cast that ranges from Flying Lotus to porn star Abella Anderson, and, of course, actor Donald "Childish Gambino" Glover himself.

Personally, I like to think it's gonna be an indierap mash-up of Slacker and Sunset Boulevard...

Yeah Yeah Yeahs "Despair" (Patrick Daughters, dir.)

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - "Despair" (Official Video)

Yeah Yeah Yeahs and director Patrick Daughters have transcendently stopped time before — and the intro here proves they can easily repeat the same feat — but they have a different tool in mind to capture that spirit of release: The Empire State Building.

Rudimental "Waiting All Night" (Nez, dir.)

Rudimental - Waiting All Night feat. Ella Eyre (Official Video)

If you're caught up on Sons of Anarchy, then you're likely familiar with Greg The Peg. The one-legged character is played by Kurt Yeager, a former BMX champ and real-life amputee who gets his unique story told in this music video. Shot like a documentary — starring Yeager and many of his friends — director Nez takes us from accident to comeback. And to borrow a phrase: It's not the bike.

Phoenix "Entertainment" (Patrick Daughters, dir.)

Phoenix - Entertainment (Official Video)

It has been a while away for both Phoenix and director Patrick Daughters, and what better way to come back than with a larger than life ode to Korean cinema. The look mixes genres and eras —employing vernacular images of opening ceremony style choreography, Hong Kong gangster action and a superstar DJ to tell the tale of tragic love(s).
