Damien Jurado - "Museum of Flight" Video

AlunaGeorge - "We Are Chosen" Video

Don't know much but I know I am digging AlunaGeorge.

Bon Iver - "Towers" Video

You've probably already seen this but I am still gonna share.  It's a great track from the self-titled Bon Iver album that was released last year that somehow was more hyped than his first.  It's good though, so it's OK.
