New Videos: Vampire Weekend, The Carribean, The Streets, Spiritualized


Vampire Weekend – “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa”

In which the New York band soundtracks some super-awkward party moments at a fancy pad. Don’t miss the dreamy shot of lead singer Ezra Koenig superimposed over rolling ocean waves. Swoon!

The Carribbean – “The Go from Tactical”

In which the DC quartet’s melancholy tune is illustrated by the cutest little robots you ever did see. It’s like Wall-E without the budget!

After the jump: a very long walk and some rather high jumps.

The Streets – “The Escapist”

In which UK-based Mike Skinner takes his band name seriously, hitting the road for some quality walkathons in a cute pair of pink shorts. Somebody give him a ride!

Spiritualized – “You Lie You Cheat”

In which the UK combo’s noisy triple-time rock number gets accompanied by footage taken with what must have been a very sturdy camera.

OUR NEW CORRUPTION PROJECT

The more we thought about how MoJo's journalism can have the most impact heading into the 2020 election, the more we realized that so many of today's stories come down to corruption: democracy and the rule of law being undermined by the wealthy and powerful for their own gain.

So we're launching a new Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption. We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We'll publish what we find as a major series in the summer of 2020, including a special issue of our magazine, a dedicated online portal, and video and podcast series so it doesn't get lost in the daily deluge of breaking news.

It's unlike anything we've done before and we've got seed funding to get started, but we're asking readers to help crowdfund this new beat with an additional $500,000 so we can go even bigger. You can read why we're taking this approach and what we want to accomplish in "Corruption Isn't Just Another Scandal. It's the Rot Beneath All of Them," and if you like how it sounds, please help fund it with a tax-deductible donation today.
