In this edition: Outer space! Sufi trances! Bling! And, er, an animatronic bear!

Charlotte Hatherley – “Behave”
In which the former Ash guitarist’s quirky guitar rock is elevated by a mesmerizing animated video directed by the brother of “Shaun of the Dead” director Edgar Wright

The Good, The Bad and The Queen – “The Good, The Bad and The Queen”
In which Sufi men whirl about in a traditional ceremony, reflecting the song’s ecstatically accelerating tempo

(Via Pitchfork)

Swizz Beatz – “Money in the Bank”
In which the cliché theme of the gold-digging woman is given new life with hypnotic and amusing visuals to match the entrancing beat and silly sped-up vocals

(Via The Fader)

Patrick Watson – “Luscious Life”
In which the Canadian singer-songwriters Jeff Buckley-meets-Coldplay tune is given the Monty Python-style collage-animation treatment

(Via Stereogum)

Animatronic Bear – “Hey There Delilah”
In which a robot bear from like a Chuck E. Cheese or somewhere is reprogrammed to sing the inescapable Plain White T’s hit, making the song seem far more melancholy and meaningful than it did before
