Welcome to FACT’s weekly video round-up.

As we note at the end of every year, music videos have never been better. But too often, music videos — along with documentaries, live sets and interview clips — get lost in the shuffle of news and new music.

With that in mind, FACT is doing what it does for mixes, mixtapes, vinyl and more: rounding up the internet’s best videos on a weekly basis. And to remove our bias, we won’t be including our own content — you’ll have to stay tuned to FACT TV for all your Against The Clock, FACT Freestyle and Big Narstie needs.

Dawn Richard
Dir: kyttenjanae

Dawn Richard teams with kyttenjanae to create a “3D utopia” soundtracked by polyrhythmic Blackheart standout ‘Calypso’. Metallic avatars, blasts of 8-bit color and Richard’s Medusa-esque braids evoke a digital paradise reminiscent of videos by Bok Bok and Arca.

Twin Shadow
‘I’m Ready’
Dir: Lance Drake

Twin Shadow’s latest power ballad seems ripped from an ’80s soundtrack. In kind, the video plays like a black-and-white trailer for a forgotten action movie, complete with Los Angeles wideshots, bits of cliched dialogue, models on cars and — in an anachronistic turn — a Final Fantasy sword.

P. Morris
POP.MORRIS [Volume One: An Excerpt]
Dir: Maal A Goomba & Princess Goomba

On POP.MORRIS project, P. Morris melts and blends his influences together as he embraces digital distortion. It’s the same approach used by Maal A Goomba and Princess Goomba in this video, where Beyoncé, Drake and Soul Train clips are spooled on the same VHS as home movies, a Pharrell shoutout and a Whitney Houston interview as digital bugs swarm.

‘Would You Be Mine’
Dir: Adan Jodorowsky

Adan (son of Alejandro) Jodorowsky goes full-on NSFW camp in the video for his latest disco pop number. Jodorowsky enters a den of iniquity with porn star/writer Stoya, embarking on a softcore journey that finds novel uses for paint brushes and crucifixes as the Virgin Mary, taxidermied animals and a pair of Tumblr geishas look on.

Toro y Moi

Chaz Bundick gets lost in the supermarket in this HARRYS-directed clip, where satellite shots of suburbia, untethered fruit and a smoke-filled jam session hit the same notes as this nostalgic slice of power pop.

‘Chasing The Art’

Wiley takes the title of his latest single to heart, running through London on the hunt for the city’s best graffiti — which now includes some Wiley stencils.

Lindstrøm and Grace Hall
‘Home Tonight’
Dir: Petter Tangmyr

A neon-haired Grace Hall spends a day in hazy Los Angeles and acts as the getaway driver for a wolf-masked thief; this one is a more straight-forward take on the L.A. fantasy found in the ‘Ice Crystal Palace’ video, by Hall’s band Skin Town.

Death By Icon
‘Wake Up’
Dir: Death By Icon

Chicago rap weirdos Death By Icon share their self-directed video for ‘Wake Up’, using a VHS collage of ’80s artifacts — from cereal commercials to Studio 54 coke sessions — to show how TV can rot kids’ brains.

Death From Above 1979
Dir: Eva Michon

Amish teens run amok in ‘Virgins’, eating mushrooms, snorting ashes, milking cows and licking body parts until their barn-borne headbangers ball gets broken up by a pair of party-crashing cops (played by DFA, naturally).

Kevin Gates
‘Pourin The Syrup’
Dir: PhillyFlyBoy

Gates raps through this Luca Brasi 2 cut with his usual wide-eyed intensity, and the video is as purple-tinted and disorienting as you’d expect from an ode to lean.
