Clip Bin #8: Katy Perry, Simian Mobile Disco, Sigur Rós, Drake, Twin Shadow + more
This week in Clip Bin: Slaughterhouse are pensive about their careers, Twin Shadow goes Mad Max, Mischa Barton gets relevant by running around in her underwear, Katy Perry releases another personal track, and Shia LeBeouf‘s junk is out for Sigur Rós (in the name of art).
To say Longevity is a trippy clip is an understatement. It’s sort of like watching an old school screensaver if you were on acid. The single’s from their upcoming album Fragrant World, out August 17th.

Slaughterhouse- My Life feat. Cee-Lo Green
Eminem being fed grapes by a velociraptor should be enough to get this clip viral. Slaughterhouse, a collective made up of Royce da 5’9″, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Crooked I, have teamed up with The Voice judge Cee-Lo for My Life.
Disclaimer: not-to-scale dinosaurs aside, there isn’t a lot going on in this clip. Solid track, though.
Slow Club- Beginners
Not to be outdone by his Harry Potter co-star, Daniel Radcliffe makes a star appearance in British indie-folk duo Slow Club‘s new video. His lip-syncing abilities are about as good as that Hawaiian shirt is stylish. This one was directed by Lucy Needs, and is from Slow Club‘s album Paradise.

Summer Camp- Always
If Bonnie & Clyde were hipsters, they’d be Summer Camp. Like Slow Club, these two are a British Moshi-Moshi indie duo, and this single is from their upcoming EP Always, out next month.

Twin Shadow- Five Seconds
If you can’t wait for the new Mad Max movie, let this one from Twin Shadow tie you over. The clip for Five Seconds was released earlier this week, and is a veritable Mad Max meets The Warriors. It’s narrative heavy and features full credits at the end- well worth five minutes to enjoy this cinematic clip.

2 Chainz- No Lie feat. Drake
The walls bleed black ink (although with Drizzy present, you’d expect tears) in this new clip from 2 Chainz. The Georgia rapper isn’t known for being the most creative of artists, but this black and white clip is actually pretty slick. Director X takes the reigns on this one, giving the average-at-best track a cool visual accompaniment, and using it as an excuse to dress some models in kinky get-up.
Also, Drake, we know you’re famous and don’t give a fuck, but put those sunnies anyway.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds- Everybody’s on the Run
Noel Gallagher manages to get both Mischa Barton and Cameron Van Hoy (whose biggest credit seems to be ’Guy #2′ in a 2008 episode of The Sarah Connor Chronicles) to run around in their underwear in his new clip. The only thing remotely British about it is the gratuitous nudity.
We’re also surprised that Gallagher‘s ego allowed him to play a taxicab driver.

Sigur Rós- Fjögur Píanó
This one, directed by Alma Har’el, is the latest in Sigur Rós‘ experimental film series. Starring Shia LeBeouf, the experimental instrumental accompanies a strange clip in which LeBeouf engages in some morning acts with a lady, feigns driving through the ocean, then gets emotional before committing sexual assault in a room full of dead butterflies. OK, so it doesn’t make much sense, but as a film, it’s actually quite fantastic.

Katy Perry- Wide Awake
We already talked about Katy Perry‘s very personal clip for Wide Awake, but if you missed it, here it is again.

Simian Mobile Disco- Your Love Ain’t Fair
There aren’t any people in this clip, but that’s where its watchability comes from. Directed by Laurence Stephens, it follows a similar visual trend to Seraphim, but we think perhaps it’s not as effective. You decide.

Flo Rida- Let It Roll
Full disclosure- I didn’t actually watch this video. I’m still trying to get over the fact that Flo Rida still has a record deal.

50 Cent- Double Up feat. Hayes
In case you were wondering, yes, 50 Cent still has a recording career. Here’s his latest, in which Fiddy gets all up in his rich boy toys. Although, to quote the top comment on the video, “Who the fuck is Hayes?”

In case you hadn’t noticed, American Apparel and controversy are kind of a package deal. In fact, the LA-based brand has become arguably more infamous for its controversial commercial campaigns, than for its beloved basic tees and bodysuits.
It’s been two and a half years since Kanye West dropped his highly-acclaimed fifth album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and although we’ve since seen him team up with Jay-Z as The Throne and his G.O.O.D. Music clique with Cruel Summer, there’s certainly …
I’m led to believe that there are a number of cinemagoers in the United States who handed over their ten bucks to see trash-film auteur Harmony Korine’s latest, Spring Breakers, with the expectation that it would provide a perfect fusion …
