Here's Nicolas Randall's new short film-cum-video for A-Trak's We All Fall Down, set in a lively Western bar, with a cast of colourful characters.

Director Ryan Andrews' first music video since joining Kode Media late last year is for the LA electro pop quartet Transviolet's track New Bohemia, and it sees the band's leading vocalist electrifying the viewer with her piercing blue eyes, and harnessing lightning bolts from a couple of stormy clouds that she's holding on a leash.
The greatest of the great OK Go videos are generally known in shorthand as 'the treadmill one', or the 'Rube Goldberg Machine one', and so on. Now, the video for Upside Down & Inside Out will always be known as 'the zero gravity one'.

Elements of 50s sci-fi, Saul Bass and Tiki align beautifully to the dreamy 'post-pop' of Spitting Image, from the band's debut album The Watercolors. A delightful piece of work.
