Hellogoodbye float on in the woodsy "(Everything Is) Debatable" video.
A musician floating in an Oregon forest, singing about trees: sounds like a cool "Portlandia" sketch. Except it's actually Hellogoodbye's new music video, which is way better. In the best camping trip ever, the Cali-bred band went to the Pacific Northwest to film "(Everything Is) Debatable," the title track of the group's upcoming album.

Patrick Stump catches a ride with Foxes in Fall Out Boy's "Just One Yesterday" video.
After suffering a beating at the hands of a tween gang in the band's "The Mighty Fall" video, Fall Out Boy's grisly story continues in the "Young Blood Chronicles" part six of 11: "Just One Yesterday." This time, the foursome are bloody and bruised, making their individual ways through the woods to try to hitchhike to the hospital.

The Griswolds soundtrack a killer music fest in their "Mississippi" video.
Ever wonder what a music festival looks like from the perspective of an Australian indie-pop band… on acid? The Griswolds answer that question in their trippy video for "Mississippi," which captures all the face paint, dancing, make-out sessions, and color-powder explosions we'd expect from the best music fest weekend ever.

Into It. Over It. feel overwhelmed by the past in their "No Amount Of Sound" video.
They say emo's coming back -- and by they, we mean Stereogum, who is totally right, even if emo never really left. Into It. Over It. is one of 12 bands pegged by the indie site as leading the current wave of emo, and their track "No Amount of Sound" is definitely worthy of the praise.
The Chicago one-man band's latest single eschews rhythmic heat or hard-riffing power chords for some slo-mo '90s noise, mustering decaying electric guitar riffs and the heavy volume of feedback and open chords underneath Evan Weiss' bedroom-tender melody. It's not far from the sound of Translanticism-era Death Cab for Cutie or Pedro the Lion circa Control.

Forever the Sickest Kids rock a treadmill run in "Nikki."
Forever the Sickest Kids' potent pop punk is the kind of music that's crucial come workout time, so it's rad to see the band delivering their latest track at the gym. In the "Nikki" video, the band shreds through the song between barbells and treadmills, as a pair of characters pick up their paces. Come to 24-Hour Fitness, dudes!

Hawthorne Heights illustrate a post-apocalyptic tale in their "Golden Parachutes" video.
Hawthorne Heights' "Golden Parachutes" video opens with a lit match and a man hiding out from the world. When the band shows up, they're smudged and weary, playing punk rock on a post-apocalyptic stage. It's not the look of a group taking home a CEO's bailout money, but "Golden Parachutes" showcases a more metaphorical tale, following a crew of rebels raging against an industrial machine with the help of typewriters and underground tunnels. (Not to mention steampunk glasses!)

Get to know the stormy, U2-influenced rock sound of Charlotte, North Carolina's Flagship.
When it comes to the tricky business of band-naming, Flagship pretty much nailed it. On songs such as "Are You Calling" and "Break the Sky," the Charlotte, N.C., group sounds immense and gray, ready for choppy seas (and packed venues). The band formed when solo artist Drake Margolnick and Campbell the Band joined forces, Voltron-ing into a powerhouse of gloomy guitars and anthemic melodies.

Sleigh Bells bring the noise (and the psych-pop) on their new single.
Sleigh Bells are a band known for keeping it simple. Since melting faces with Treats, the Brooklyn duo's mostly stuck to its formula: Derek Miller's volcanic guitars and the quiet/loud vocals of singer Alexis Krauss. But "You Don't Get Me Twice," the second single from the band's upcoming Bitter Rivals, swerves after getting straight to the point. Yeah, it opens with Krauss giggling, backbeat drum hits and a chug-a-lug Miller guitar riff, but that's just the first 23 seconds. That's when the song shifts into clean, psych-pop guitar arpeggios and a sweeter Krauss melody before bringing the noise back in.

The Maine discover the dangers of breaking and entering.
It's Forever Halloween in Maine-land, and the Arizona band's "Love & Drugs" video is all about that Pumpkin Spice Latte life. "We've got champagne taste, but not enough money for the real thing," John O'Callaghan sings on the alt-rock track (feel you, dude), but "Love & Drugs" doesn't get mad -- it gets even.
The video opens with the band and some lady friends out on a friendly ride through the Hollywood Hills, before the hard-pedaling biker gang sneaks into a rich family's house, "Bling Ring" style.

Goldroom's been thinking 'bout you every day.
What rhymes with "hug me"? Pretty sure it's Goldroom. (We're bad at rhyming.) The dance music producer's latest single is "Embrace," a synth-heavy summer anthem that'll carry us into fall just fine.
As usual, Goldroom recruits a soulful female singer to play the song's diva, this time turning to Melbourne, Australia's Ariela Jacobs. "I've been thinking about you every day," she sings on the hook, her high-pitched vocals reaching into the clouds. And the song's mostly hook: Goldroom has mastered the art of getting his songs right to the good part.
