THE BPA: Toe Jam

Norman Cook is back but this time under another alias besides Fatboy Slim, Beats International, Pizzaman, or whatever. This time some high profile collaborations and a brilliant music video directed by Keith Schofield. Who new anonymous black bars could be so titilating? David Byrne and Dizzee Rascal lend guest vocals to this ska pop hip-hoppery first single. Watch the music video (qt).

THE TING TINGS: Great DJ

After being catapulted into the limelight via a ubiquitous iPod commercial, the Salford based duo of The Ting Tings follow through with a brilliant summertime pop album. Aptly entitled We Started Nothing, the album mixes today's genres of the moment, electro, punk and pop for a perfect cocktail of catchy hooks and punchy lyrics. Nothing new invented here, but certainly good fun for the now. Video directed by Factory Film's Rachel Reupke. Watch the music video (qt).

ANNIE: I Know UR Girlfriend Hates Me

Norwegian electropop darling, Annie, is back with a second long player due shortly. The first is a sugary confection produced by Richard X and while lacks in feats of musical innovation, lands squarely in the sweet spot of top girly bubblegum pop. Directed by Sarah Chatfield in hypercolour make-up. Watch the music video (qt).

ROISIN MURPHY: You Know Me Better

Scouring the net for high quality versions of music clips is increasingly like finding a needle in a haystack. More people are moving to streaming or flash related displays and that truly sucks for cliptip. But better late than never, I've been able to locate this gem of a track and video from cliptip favourite, Irish pop eccentric Roisin Murphy (ex of electro trip-pop Moloko fame) collaborating with another cliptip favourite, now London based director Jaron Albertin. Taking inspiration of stark conceptual photographer Cindy Sherman, the video features Roisin in various modes of dress and hair dress. A killer disco-pop track that deserves a hell of a lot more attention than she currently gets. Watch the music video (qt).

MGMT: Electric Feel

Cliptip favourite psychedelic glam band MGMT have a second surrealist music video out to support their single Electric Feel. The album Oracular Spectacular is a high rotation, highly recommended gem here on the cliptip ipod. The video is directed by Ray Tintori, and features an animatronic band straight out of your local Chuck-E-Cheese restaurant set in a forest of elfish revellers. It's reminiscient of a sunday afternoon in Montreal patchouli soaked Tam Tams. Watch the music video (qt).
