For this week’s Music Video of the Week, we are featuring the stellar musical and visual stylings of Canadian duo, Data Romance. Above is Data Romance’s awesome video for their song “Bones”.
Dont forget to stop by their website to download this song and tons of free remixes for only the price of a FB status post or Tweet. And just in case you were wondering, that sweet beat pad is called a Monome.
As what looks like “The Day After Tomorrow” has begun to sweep the nation, we have found that by listening to summery, sunshiny type tunes, it is much easier to look past the ice storms banging at your window and the vast amounts of snow pilling at your front door.
With that in mind, here’s the perfect song/video to kick off your “pretend it’s summer while your house is being burred by cold wetness and your roof might cave in from all the snow stay inside and lounge around party.”
….And yes, this video does feature Rainn Wilson (Dwight) from The Office. Rumor is singer-songwriter Lionheart and Wilson met through their shared Baha’i Faith.
Awesome three part music video series for Russ Chimes new EP titled “Midnight Club”. Creatively edited, this series does a great job at really pulling you into the drama.
Each video is paired with a different song from the EP and depicts an awesome story line that will give you no other choice but to keep watching. Watch them and let us know what you think; be careful, once you start, you wont be able to stop ’til they’re over.
If you like what you saw above, purchase the Midnight Club EP on iTunes.

Our boys at 24KT KidLivin sent us these awesome playlists for students to listen to while studying for stressful finals.
“As finals approach, Tim and I have decided to put together all the songs that help us get through the long days spent in the library in hopes that they will also help some of you. Because we each like to study to different music (and we know all of you do too), we have made two separate playlists for you to chose from. Each lasting over four hours, we have designed the order of the tracks to keep your spirits high during a time of such desperation. We know that burying your head in a book, or inflicting carpal tunnel upon your fingers doesn’t quite match the fun of an all night dance party, but at least you’ll have the tunage to keep your head in the game. Let us know what you think of them as we hope that they will be useful in your quest for A’s. And when the smelly kid sitting next to you with the cracked out eyes comes back from his 9th cigarette in two hours, refer him to one of these playlists and maybe he’ll repay you for saving his life one day.”

Although this video came out over the summer, we feel it was one greatly overlooked. Filmed with a retro feel to match its retro sound, Ronson teams up with one of hip-hop’s greats, Q-Tip, and quirky synth-pop artist MNDR (pronounced Mandar) to create this euro-retro masterpiece anyone can dance to.

Here’s another video to a song that came out in the early summer that got a lot of attention. Directed by So Me, this video features not only the DJ duo of Duck Sauce (Armand Van Helden and A-Trak) but QuestLove, Santigold, members of the Fool’s Gold family, Kanye West, Dave 1 and P-Thugg of Chromeo, The Fat Jew, Pharrell, Yelawolf, Diplo, DJ Premier, Just Blaze, DJ Mehdi, Buckshot, Dust La Rock, Ryan Leslie, Ezra Koeing of Vampire Weekend, Fafi,
Smif N’ Wessum, Todd Terry, Pill, and, of course, a Barbara Streisand look alike (kind of). Download

Here’s a new video from two great artists in todays Electronic Dance scene – Don Diablo and Dragonette. This stellar video portrays the electronic dance scene in a clever way. Check out the awesome irony in their new video, but most of all enjoy their song!
