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

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

Our fall fundraising drive is off to a rough start, and we very much need to raise $250,000 in the next couple of weeks. If you value the journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us do it with a donation today.

As we wrote over the summer, traffic has been down at Mother Jones and a lot of sites with many people thinking news is less important now that Donald Trump is no longer president. But if you're reading this, you're not one of those people, and we're hoping we can rally support from folks like you who really get why our reporting matters right now. And that's how it's always worked: For 45 years now, a relatively small group of readers (compared to everyone we reach) who pitch in from time to time has allowed Mother Jones to do the type of journalism the moment demands and keep it free for everyone else.

Please pitch in with a donation during our fall fundraising drive if you can. We can't afford to come up short, and there's still a long way to go by November 5.
