Massive hair, squares, low budgets, high budgets, a sentimental Kanye West, plenty of pink, Cara Delevingne, fast food restaurants, animation, mayhem, and a tiny amount of snow made its way into the 405's TV section this week. What more could you ask for?


5. Meishi Smile - 'AJS' (dir. TASK PROCESSING SYSTEM)

Premiered on Adult Swim in the early hours of Sunday morning (25th January), the video was created by TASK PROCESSING SYSTEM and showcases fun design in Flash-animation-type surroundings. It's full of colour, and features imaginative characters and creatures in a psychedelic odyssey soundtracked by the urgent passion of Meishi Smile's music.



4. Kali Uchis - 'A Glimpse Into Por Vida' (dir. Kali Uchis)

Directed by the singer herself, the video is inspired by "Griselda Blanco, Wes Anderson films, early '70s/late '60s style and pastels." It's pretty stunning.



3. Ariel Pink - 'Dayzed Inn Daydreams' (dir. Grant Singer)

Dayzed Inn Daydreams' was directed by Grant Singer and features The Mau Mau's own Rick Wilder in the central role. "It's the story of a man, played by Rick Wilder, who was once the frontman of a band that existed decades ago," Singer explains. "Through a series of scenes depicting his everyday life, we tell his story."



2. Run the Jewels - Lie, Cheat, Steal' (dir. RUFFMERCY)

Directed by RUFFMERCY (who worked on Run the Jewels' artwork in 2014, as well as creating videos for Disclosure) it's a dynamic and eye-popping affair that pulses perfectly with the punchy progression of the track.



1. Zola Jesus - 'Hunger' (dir. BANGS)

While Brooklyn creative team BANGS probably didn't spend a ton of money on the new video from Zola Jesus, they didn't really need to. It's a crazy powerful video that finds her either looking incredibly confident in statuesque poses or absolutely losing her mind and whipping her long locks around wildly.

Director Allie Avital Tsypin said of the clip, "The video for 'Hunger' is essentially a sculpture project...an exploration of a life form: both raw and refined. A negotiation between form and inner life, movement and stillness, desire and satiation. Working with Nika is always an honest and satisfying collaboration…it was really fun to interpret the song and Nika's aesthetic sensibilities through film."
