So picture this, I get my hands on a remix of the recently posted (and under-appreciated) Cruiser by some guy Noah Hyde. I scope Noah’s Soundcloud and discover a treasure trove of epic remixes by all-time TBE faves like Cherub, Purity Ring, Two Door Cinema Club, and Youth Lagoon. It’s like the guy has his finger on my pulse!
Every once in a while I meet someone who casually mentions that music videos are dead and I’m always shocked. Music videos have never been more alive and vibrant than they are now in the age of video democracy online. This post is a celebration of the creative spirit that fights every day to set great songs to even better visuals. You guys are my heroes.
Watch the videos in a countdown stye playlist below or continue on to catch them embedded 1-by-1 with my woefully minimal commentary.Â

Why:Â Youth Lagoon already delivered one of the most moving (and best) music videos of last year with “Montana.”Â The music plays into the video so well that the song never caught on with me. Now director Tyler T Williams has returned for an equally stunning, if a bit eerier, video for “July.” This time I caught the song’s vibe and am now convinced I have been missing out on some Youth Lagoon.
