We're going to ahead and call the disappearance of the music video a big fat myth.

Thanks perhaps nearly-universally to YouTube, music videos are being churned out at an amazing pace (it seems hardly a day goes by without a new "shocking" and "sexy" Rihanna video). We spanned the internet to distill the golden from the God-awful, and proudly present another ten of our favorite artistic music videos.

What makes an "artistic" music video, you ask? The criteria are that the visuals must have an aesthetic or technological appeal that goes beyond a simple telling of the story. For Scottish band Django Django, frenetic animation created through a random process is the name of the game, while Modeselektor use something more precise to take it to the next level.

For this edition we dug deep to find videos that exemplify new and innovative approaches to the medium. From brain-melting animation to exquisitely shot narratives, here's our latest batch of music videos we can't stop watching. Please let us know what you think in the comments section below.
