The grimy new vid from The Legendary Roots Crew is more like whitey’s deconstruction.

The genre/gravity defying duo of Danger Mouse and Cee-lo Green hooked up with JT, formerly of the Mickey Mouse club, for this ’80s era, public access dance-hour video for their new single. It’s as cool as it sounds, but what did you expect?

A new somber ballad from Usher. I was looking forward to a follow up to Confessions a year or two ago, but am I the only one who thinks these new tracks have been underwhelming?

On The Roots’ new single, ?uestloves drums sound like they’re at war with Black Thought’s irrepressable vocals. In the video, looks like some poor white guy gets caught up in the melee. Get the mp3 after the jump.

Beck recruited consumerist photographer Chris Jordan for the video for his 2007 iTunes single, “Time Bomb.” It’s no gerbil-abusing Microsoft Paint odyssey, but the zooming images of mass American consumption paired with Beck’s “There’s a time bomb tickin'” refrain make for a subtle but powerful message. What’s Beck up to, anyway? We’ve got a red alert.

A quietly dream-like video for Jay-Z’s copasetic, Neptunes-produced American Gangster track, “I Know”. Shout out to the lovely Zoe Kravitz. Also, check out a surprise appearance from Jay after the jump. (more…)

The perennially elusive electronica duo The Postal Service recently emerged on a remix of Brit post-punksters, The Cribs’ song, “I’m a Realist.” The original song is from The Cribs very Strokes-y 2007 album Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever and the remix is one of the very limited collaborations of Dntel’s Jimmy Tamborello and Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard since their 2003 sensation, Give Up.

Mariah’s “Body” comes with high expectations. Lazer tag, pillow fights and a unicorn, but somehow I feel unsatisfied.

Directed by Brett “Rush Hour” Rattner. Shout out to “Kenny the page” from 30 Rock.
