Allison Weiss touches every heart in the room in her "Wait For Me" video.
Sensitive indie songstress Allison Weiss has quite a story to tell in her new "Wait For Me" video, and, just a warning, you might want to have a box of tissues ready.
In her low-budget but highly effective clip, Allison, who doesn't appear, illustrates a touching story about a young French-Canadian mother who's away from her daughter and fiancé to go to college in the States. Yeah, like we were saying... tissues.

Dogs in music videos is the next big trend! 2013 IS A GOOD YEAR!
Dogs as man's best friend isn't exactly a new concept, but dogs in music videos? Say what? I mean, we've always been obsessed with pop stars and their K-9 BFFs (like Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, and Joe Jonas), but it's starting to look like the new music video trend is putting dogs IN music videos (PAW-RAISE!), which, for the record, WE ARE ON BOARD WITH NOW AND FOREVER. (OK, so technically dogs aren't singing and dancing like real pop stars, but it's start! Also, can everyone just take a moment to imagine a real-life Justin Beagle!? AHHH!)
Now, we respect that some of you are total cat people (we're looking at you, Taylor Swift), but for the time being, let's put this dog vs. cat battle aside and raise our paws up in honor of some of the best doggie-focused music videos EVER!

For The Foxes describe romantic love in their brand-new lyric video, "Running Back To You."
Did you know that 75 percent of love songs (rough guestimate) are all a lie? They're actually about falling out of love, or wishing that the object of your affection was in love with you. That's why it's a nice change of pace to hear a song like For The Foxes' "Running Back To You," which actually seems about a mutually shared love. Weird how that works!

Allison Weiss asks all of the important post-breakup questions in her "Making It Up" video.
If "The Post-It Always Sticks Twice" episode of "Sex And The City" taught us anything, it's that there really is no good way to break up with someone. Don't send an e-mail, don't text us, don't do it over Facebook, don't drop off the face of the Earth -- just have the human decency to tell it to our face! We deserve that much! Oh, um, er, sorry. Just feeling a little emotional transference from Allison Weiss' "Making It Up" video (off of her latest record, Say What You Mean), where the bespeckled indie-pop singer gets broken up with on a single sheet of paper, reading, "Allison, I can't do this. I'm sorry. -- Scott" OK, who's this "Scott" character?! Hope he likes knuckle sandwiches. Oh wait, it's her dog.

Allison Weiss laments a dying relationship in her new track, "Nothing Left."
Brooklyn's Allison Weiss has a LOT of feelings. But she has zero problem telling you about them -- it's kind of her thing. And we have zero problem hearing about them (which is kind of saying something, because Allison is hardly the first Brooklyn musician to sing songs about feelings). But seriously, we wish every musician was so eloquent in their delivery. On Allison's new song, "Nothing Left," off of her upcoming debut, Say What You Mean, we're instantly reminded of Jenny Lewis' heartfelt vulnerability, Candy Hearts' hooky delivery, and the entire Weakerthans catalog. (We warned you about the #feelings.)
