Where their last video, for "The Rifle's Spiral," was Tim Burton-esque, the Shins' new video for "It's Only Life" follows a creative kid who treats abandonment with perfect abandon.

It's the perfect way to start not-quite-Friday.

The Golden Gate Bridge has a music video, now that it's turning 75.

The song: made out of sounds the bridge actually makes. What a diva.

The new Zac Brown Band video for "The Wind" is directed by Mike Judge -- which means a big game-hunting robot in the deep South gets the Beavis and Butthead treatment.

Indie-pop pair Matt & Kim earned the Breakthrough Music Video MTV award in 2009 for "Lessons Learned," their simple-yet-brilliant walk-and-strip in Times Square.

Their new vid, for "Let's Go," is styled in a similarly simple fashion, this time around the skills of Pat the Roc, "the world's greatest ball handler."
