That’s right, stop working, it’s okay. Just put down the phone/spreadsheet/spatula, put off that meeting/budget/drive-through order for five minutes, and watch some teeny-tiny new music videos. Your boss/client/hungry children in SUV can wait.

Mute Math – “Typical” (via YouTube Most Viewed)
IN which SXSW standouts with a big U2-y sound (and possible Christian Rock background?) film entire video in reverse

Low – “Breaker” (via Stereogum)
In which lead singer Alan Sparhawk tries to eat a whole chocolate cake, and, um, that’s pretty much it

Simian Mobile Disco – “It’s the Beat” (via Yahoo Music UK)
In which an inhabitant of a cartoonish black-and-white world gets hit with a color bomb accompanied by some French electro

Lily Allen – “Alfie” (via me just looking it up)
In which the Brit pop starlet tells us about her stoner brother, who is also, apparently, a puppet

Bonus! Queens of the Stone Age – 45-second preview of stuff (via Silent Uproar)
In which the California rockers provide some teases of new material on their upcoming album, Era Vulgaris; wait til very end for Nirvana-like power riff

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
