HERCULES AND LOVE AFFAIR: Blind

This track essential tore apart the runaways of the recent fashion weeks across the world. Featuring the mesmerizing vocals of Antony Hegarty, last seen dueting with Bjork, you can imaging a bunch of sashaying fashionists delicately, dispassionately dancing to the saxophone infused tempo. It's an amazingly sophisticated track that stands proudly amongst a backdrop of harsh electrofied fakers. The rest of the album is reported to be just as outstanding. DFA does it yet again. Directed by Saam. Watch the music video (qt).

DUFFY: Mercy

Is this squeaky clean Welsh blonde the new Amy Winehouse? The UK press seems to make her out to be. Sure she's got an wizened beyond her teenage years world weariness about her and her voice is prematurely gruff and soulful. But it's doubtful that low register voice is a result of all night benders, spousal shouting matches or a cocktail of too much hair colourant and beehive holding spray akin to he peer. Let's just all hold hands and pray fame has a less debilitating effect on this promising new blue-eyed soul sprite. Video directed by Daniel Wolfe. Adele who? Watch the music video (qt).

JUSTICE: D.A.N.C.E.

Time for a golden oldie. Truthfully, I wanted to post this video ages ago, but these days, it is getting increasingly harder to find hi-quality music videos to give you. Streaming videos truly blow (record labels pay heed!) and watching YouTube is immediate but is the same as watching scrambled porn- all the money shots are pixelated to shit. So if you're a savvy cliptip podcast subscriber, here it is. Justice's funky t-shirt loving music video, as directed by Jonas and Francois. Watch the music video (qt).

SAM SPARRO: Black And Gold

Look out Jamie Lidell. Los Angeles based soul electrofunkster Sam Sparro is riding a blogospheric wave of hype usually reserved for NME endorsed indie band-o-the-week. The slick production and the soulful croon of this blue eyed boy will equally satisfy Maroon 5 to 9ers and French Touchtards. The LA style blinged video is directed by Alexandliane.

BOMB THE BASS: Butterfingers

How freaking cool is it that original innovator Bomb The Bass have returned with a brand spanking new record? The seminal cut-and-paste act from the eighties team up with the with surprisingly un-Japanese Fujiya and Miyagi for a kicker of a electropop gem. It likely won't wag heads, but its sublime, minimal production is just what cliptip likes. Puppet mixing deck courtesy of Parish Factory. Watch the music video (qt).

THE KNIFE: Na Na Na

It is entirely unclear whether this is an official The Knife video or not, as it is a rather non-single track and lacks some of the grotesque imagery so familiar to official The Knife videos. That being said, it is not usual suspect director Andreas Nilsson, who's twisted vision was last seen here on Moby's Alice video. It's a quick little ambient track in neutral tones, like a little shot of Swedish weirdness. Directed by David Vegezzi. Watch the music video (qt).

M.I.A.: Paper Planes

Well about bloody time this video made itself on this blog, but it is not for lack of trying. Crap-flash-tic versions abound, but cliptip offers you a wonderful quicktime file. Directed by Bernard Gourley, M.I.A. is showcased in her adopted New York home looking ghetto fabulous, working the bodega, flippin the Casette Playa. Watch the music video (qt).

THE PRESETS: This Boy's In Love

Second single from the Syndey electro duo, The Presets. Surprisingly more melody and pop sounding that previous industrial edged efforts, this video features brawls in puddles of milk, black powdered faces and soaring vocals amid sparking rain drops and lead singer Julian Hamilton's menacing mouth. Never have crooked teeth looked so sexy. Watch the music video.

Strobe lights flicker while electo beeps twitter in this lead video from London's electro industrial wonders, MOTOR.

THE RAVEONETTES: Dead Sound

Danish duo The Raveonettes are back with a sound that most closely resembles arguably their best record to date, their debut Whip It On. The new collection, Lust Lust Lust, boasts the signature minor keyed trip hop rock-a-billy vibes and this ghostly new clip where the recent dead haunts various characters into lip synchage is directed by Mark Walker.
