#7 Heart Streets – Collision, directed by Laurence Davidson
Some like it hot. I stumbled upon this video by Heart Streets which I presented some weeks ago here at my videodrome. Goddamn, that shit is hot. The beats are dark and sexy, the melody is slick. And these girls are mighty fine.

#10 Kim Ann Foxman – Return It, directed by Jonathan Turner
Kim Ann Foxman. Crazy, crazy song and visuals, she’s rad. Shouts to my homie Walter for putting me on.
Blu drops some new amazing visuals to his Flying Lotus-produced track that features Wu-Tang member U-God. The track is off his No York! album, one of the best indie hip-hop albums of 2011 which I guess hasn’t officially been released yet. The visuals, made by David M. Helman and with animation by Ruffmercy</strong, are definitely unique and match perfectly with the laid back flow of Blu and the textural landscape created by Flying Lotus, who really takes this one to another level. Watch the joint below:
