"I think evolution is responsible for why everything is the way it is. Some people don't believe in evolution. Some people don't believe in it and that's OK. I don't think that they're stupid but I think most people that argue against evolution sound really stupid. Because most people that argue against it say shit like 'Well I ain't a monkey.' That's not... No one said that you were... 'Well my daddy ain't a monkey.' Do you just want to keep going back until you find a monkey? Is that the point? Did you read the thing? It doesn't sound like you read it. It's not, it didn't happen in 1972."

These are our five favourite videos from the past seven days:


5. Mayer Hawthorne - 'Crime' (feat. Kendrick Lamar) (dir. Rashida Jones)

Mayer Hawthorne teamed up with a pretty amazing director for his 'Crime' video, which features Kendrick Lamar. They brought Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones on board for the clip, which is every bit as amazing as you'd think. In the video he goes on the most epic trek imaginable to attend a super exclusive party, and Lamar shows up via cell phone for a quick chat before he takes off on a parachute. - Tarynn Law



4. JJ - 'Dynasti' (dir. Olivia Kastebring)

'Dynasti' is one of the most beautifully shot music videos I've seen in quite some time, as JJ vocalist Elin Kastlander sways amidst flaming pianos and dancers that flail behind her on a dark desert terrain. It's the kind of video that visual studies courses could be analyzing for years to come. - Tarynn Law



3. Chromeo - 'Old 45's' (dir. Dugan O'Neal)

Featuring HAIM and Jon Heder (of Napoleon Dynamite fame), a group of people at a bar break out their best dance moves to impress a girl who walks into said bar. Oh, and everyone is rocking Chromeo's new clothing line, a collaboration with Surface To Air. - Tarynn Law



2. Eyre Llew - 'Mortné' (dir. Mike Choo)

Sporting its debut single 'Mortné', Nottingham ambient post-rock outfit Eyre Llew have introduced a positively wonderful video from director Mike Choo. With the great assistance from rehearsal directors Caroline Jane, Jo Breslin, Emma Daubeney and photographer Edward Haynes, the relatively unknown forces have managed to come together and produce a glorious display of figures and motion.

The acoustic focused-slow burning single is lifted by Eyre Llew's hauntingly sweet vocal play, but appears stark and mystifying with the help of the cavalcade of tightly focused dances and shadow play. The dancing duo of Jordan Wildman and Joey Mottershead, who also choreographed the effort, manage to shine brightest in the effort against the bleak silhouette of the set.



1. Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar - 'Never Catch Me' (dir. Hiro Murai)

Hiro Murai does it again.
