WATCH: Lady Gaga debuts ‘Born this Way’ video

Lady Gaga released her video finally for the single “Born this Way” and in true Gaga form, it’s a mini-epic of a vid. She starts with a spaced-out monologue that’s laid over imagery recalling Xanadu, a lot of The Jacksons’ “Can You Feel It,” Dante’s Inferno, some Jem and probably many of the trips Charlie Sheen has in his head lately. With skeleton people, singing mannequin heads, kaleidoscopic images and the birth of a big ball of light, Gaga grabs all the attention she can in this seven-minute vid. The dancing is a bit rough and all over the place, but she knows how to keep your eye on the screen.

This Deerhunter remix video for ‘Helicopter’ should get you in the mood for their Nov. show.

Perhaps this will get you revved for Deerhunter’s upcoming show in November. The band, fronted by the out Bradford Cox (AKA Atlas Sound), brings their tour to the Granada Theater in exactly two weeks.

Remixed by Diplo and Lunice, this “Helicopter” video is a lot of back and forth imagery, but somehow it fits right into Deerhunter’s m.o. of dreamy indie rock. Just because it’s a remix, don’t expect a dance party. Diplo and Lunice keep it chill and relaxed. I’d have posted here but Vimeo is busting my balls about embedding for whatever reason. So check it here.
