The much beloved indie/weirdo band Animal Collective has paired up with director Danny Perez for a visual album called Oddsac. What this project proves, at least to me while watching it wide-eyed on a Sunday afternoon, is that if you hand a group of boys a video camera, they will make something that's all about egg pods and slimy mutants with worm heads.

Coming across new tracks by Andre 3000 is basically like finding a grocery bag full of money.

Longing for some more MIA shenanigans? Well, in that case, here you go! I present to you the new video for XXXO off her new album MAYA. Welcome to the ex-MySpacer's glittery HTML comment nightmare, kiddies. But seriously, it's all in good fun. I mean, I know she's a powerful lady, but I wonder if she's powerful enough to finally sink that SPAM-infested Titanic.
Okay, I kid, I kid...just watch it and see for yourselves!
