Lorde came crashing through the curtains (and with all that hair!) for 2013. She did quite well for herself at the bright young age of 17 with a great album, hit songs and a now a couple Grammy nominations under her belt. Now she finishes off the year with the video for, 'Team', off Pure Heroine. *Takes a bow*
Apparently, on a new web series called Culinary Beats, famous musicians get paired with famous chefs to learn each others' trades. In the first webisode, Passion Pit gets paired with chef Nick Anderer, of the new New York Italian restaurant Maialino, and we get to hear an awesome acoustic rendition of their old goodie 'Sleepyhead'. Pianos fill in for the synth drenched original,and Michael Angelakos delivers this specialty below.

Tropico is a short film that Lana released as a way for her to "try and visually close out [her] chapter before [she] release the new record, Ultraviolence." It is a bit explicit and dramatic as Lana Del Rey always is with her concepts. Modern day Adam and Eve being abolished from Eden, living through hell and trying to find a new Eden. Interesting.
One of my favoritos from Random Access Memories. Such an oddly romantic video for star-crossed mannequin lovers. How sweet it is that they get to melt into each other at the end. And highfive to Julian for working his sexy, always.
