A bunch of cool videos for a Monday

The Do - Slippery Slope

Taken from the bands new EP Dust It Off (out Dec 13) and a few months before their second album, The Do are back with an upbeat, very M.I.A.-esque banger called Slipper Slope. Along with a great video, the song is infectious and irresistible. Welcome back!

Adele - Rolling In The Deep

This song is still climbing my 2010 personal chart, as every play makes it even better. And believe me I've played A LOT it over the last few weeks. Now the video is here, and boy it's beautiful. Adele's not up to much but the visuals are clever and adds even more soul to the track. As if it were possible.

Scissor Sisters - Invisible Light

 We already knew this song is absolutely incredible (even more so when performed live), now we get to discover that its video takes it to another level. Never where you expect them to be, the Scissters have made a totally WTF and NSFW mini-movie feauring a girl being bombarded with mud, a baby wolf getting its head cut off and a lot of other nice stuff of that kind. As usual, the band surprise us, and thrill us with their unsual aesthetics. A total win as far as I'm concerned.

Brigitte - Battez-Vous

Brigitte is one of the few revelations of the year that has totally won me over. The duet's sense of style and visuals coupled with their perfect and sophisticated pop song hit all the roght buttons, and after seing them live a few weeks ago for what conts as one of my favourite shows of the year, I can safely say I'll be following them very carefully in the coming months. This is their latest video, for the very awesome Battez-Vous. If you don't understand french you won't be able to get the cheekyness and quality of the lyrics, but it shouldn't put you off. The best pop songs don't need any subtitles.

Robyn - Nobel Prize performance (Jag Vet En Dejlig Rosa / Dancing On My Own / Indestructible)

Just because I can't get enough of this incredibly precious artist, I wanted to share her performance at this year's Nobel Prize ceremony. Being one of Sweden's most valuable jewels it's only fair that she gets to show the world her talent. Don't forget to take a look at the videos of her recent Myspace Secret Show recorded live in London. One hour of pure electrobliss.
