David Byrne & St. Vincent - Who

Best music video of the year?  Possibly.  David Byrne and St. Vincent's black and white clip for "Who" is one of the most brilliant videos I've seen in a long time.  Remember Thom Yorke dancing in Radiohead's "Lotus Flower" video from last year?  Everyone wanted to dance like that.  Sorry, Thom. David and Annie have upped the standard for alternative musicians and their dance stylings.  They managed all of that without the meme factor.

Watch "Who", directed by Martin de Thurah.

David Byrne and St. Vincent's collaborative album, Love This Giant, is out on September 11, via 4AD.  The full record is available for streaming over at NPR right now.  You can pre-order Love This Giant on David and St. Vincent's website, or Amazon if you prefer.
