Hi, I’m Josh Jackson, and I’ll be your invisible VJ this week on Paste’s first Top 5 Music Video Countdown. These are our favorite recent videos from around the web, and we present them TRL-style here for your viewing pleasure.
5. Wilco – “Sunloathe”
Wilco recruited some animated wild things for the new video for this song off the band’s 2011 album The Whole Love.
4. David Wax Museum – “Harder Before It Gets Easier”
We’ve been fans of David Wax and Suz Slezak for a while and loved watching them play with face-and-body paint in this video.
3. Of Monsters and Men – “Mountain Sound (Live at The Paste Ruins)”
We’re pretty proud of this video we shot with Iceland’s seven-piece at the Newport Folk Festival and released this week.
2. Amiee Mann – “Labrador”
Jon Hamm and John Wurster guest in this shot-for-shot remake of Til Tuesday’s “Voices Carry.”
1. Ben Folds Five – “Do It Anyway”
The reunited, mathematically challenged trio enlisted a bunch of Fraggles (is that a gaggle or a flock?) for their new video. The lack of Doozers is more than made up for by the presence of Rob Corddry.
