Alex Karpovsky (from Girls) is a bad magician in the new MGMT video, hated by his meagre audience for his terrible tricks. And he's stuck in a Groundhog Day-style loop. Maybe he's dreaming - or dying? Because then the world changes, with new hidden, and frankly horrible depths, as he falls onto the operating table surrounded by surgeons.

Femke Huurdeman's second video for Flyte features the last girl on Earth, wandering through a world turned to desert. But this is no typical dystopian narrative.
Huurdeman's video for Faithless is more like a fairytale, as the girl makes an unlikely friendship, which ultimately leads to a magical transformation.
Anton Tammi goes the full peyote with a video for Somewhere Else that gives full rein to the director's visionary and hallucinatory gifts. It's probably the most psychedelic, spaced-out Western since Dennis Hopper made The Last Movie.
MGMT return, as wacky as ever, and a video for Little Dark Age with overt Cure references, a certain surreal charm and, most excitingly, Connan Mockasin, looking as nutty as Charles Manson.
Aella Jordan-Edge directs this dark surreal video for Marmozets latest single Habits. A mannequin couple holds frozen poses in typically romantic, movie trope settings. They often inhabit the same space as the band themselves, until a final twist when the line between mannequin and human becomes blurred.
In Neil Ferron's wonderfully odd video for Shine A Light, all the happy folks of the countryside gather to give a guard of of honour to the proud lady pulling a cart carrying her prized possession - a half-human/half-goat baby.
Mick Jagger's scathing response to Brexit has inspired a compelling, quietly furious video by Saam Farahmand.
While Jagger uses a sporting metaphor in England Lost to make his point about the country's slide into global irrelevance, Farahmand takes the metaphor in another more cinematic direction.
In an ambitious project for Village Green Recordings' album Salvation - which showcases the music of eight composers signed to the label - Noah Harris and Andy Biddle take us on a voyage through time and nothing less than the history of mankind, though the mesmerising animation of found objects.
