Mumford & Sons have dropped a new video, supporting their latest album, Babel, out now. In the clip for “Lover Of The Light”, Idris Elba (The Wire) directs and plays the role of a blind man who bravely decides to face the world without the aid of a seeing-eye dog or cane. It’s pretty powerful stuff, considering Marcus Mumford repeatedly sings: “watch me stumble over and over.” Watch below.

It’s been over two long years since Vampire Weekend released their latest album, Contra, and since then, we haven’t really heard new material from them. But as of yesterday, we can be officially psyched: the New York band visited Jimmy Kimmel last night (in full-on Halloween make-up) and performed a brand new track called “Unbelievers.” It’s classic VW. Check it out below.

The Killers have just dropped the new video for “Miss Atomic Bomb”, taken from their latest effort, Battle Born. The video itself is your regular tour video, showing the band jamming on stage and chilling backstage – nothing original here, but it’s still fun to watch. Check it out below.

Feist has released the new video for “Graveyard,” off her latest work, Metals. The polite way to describe the video would be to say that it is very simple or artsy, but I have to be frank: the clip sucks. Literally nothing happens, and even if something did, we’re too far away to see it. So, really, nothing much to say here, except that the song is still pretty awesome, regardless of the visuals that accompany it. Watch below.

Titus Andronicus have released the first video supporting their latest album, Local Business, now available via XL Recordings. “In a Big City” is a rousing anthem and ode to the band’s native New Jersey, which is why it makes perfect sense that in the video, frontman Patrick Stickles is seen singing along while wandering through the Garden State, until he arrives to the Hudson River’s banks and stares at the skyline of the promised land. It’s quite nice. Watch below.

It’s been over a year since M83 released the fantastic album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming – proving once and for all that Anthony Gonzalez is the undisputed master at crafting swelling, electronic anthems. A good example of this is the burner “Steve McQueen”, which has a brand new video. The clip, directed by Balthazar Auxietre and Sylvain Derosne, perfectly captures that sense of childlike exploration and wonder. Watch below.

New York-based band, Guards, will finally unleash their debut full-length, aptly named In Guards We Trust, slated to be released on February 5th via Black Bell Records. It’s bound to be a good one. They’ve also unveiled a new video for their first single, “Silver Lining.” In the clip, the band performs in front of a trippy backdrop of swirling colors and upside-down faces. Watch below.

It’s been over a year since Bon Iver released his latest album Bon Iver, Bon Iver – but the video for the 80s-inspired album closer, “Beth/Rest”, is finally here. Justin Vernon directs and here’s what he had to say about the clip:
“[i]t’s kind of about two people who are truly meant for each other and what happens to their essence. How they connect is some other thing that we don’t know how to really talk about.”

Earlier this year, the fantastic soul rockers, Alabama Shakes, released a debilitatingly awesome debut album, Boys & Girls, which introduced frontwoman Brittany Howard’s wonderful voice and energy to the world. They’ve recently released the video for “I Ain’t The Same,” one of the album’s standout tracks. The clip features the band tearing it up in London’s Konk Studios. Their live shows are legendary, but this video proves they are just as good anywhere they play. Check it out below.
