If you're looking for a soundtrack to enjoy the upcoming summer, you could do worse than Foster the People.

The Los Angeles-based band, who will be here for the Big Day Out on January 20, have released another video from their sun-drenched debut album Torches.

Call It What You Want is another upbeat anthem that features lead singer Mark Foster shooting a group of fans with a paintball gun.

Check out Foster the People's Call It What You Want:

Badly knitted jumpers, terrible haircuts, hairy dogs and a horrible home movie screening - it's all there in Real Estate's new video clip.

It's Real, featuring what looks to be the the worst weekend away ever, comes from the Brooklyn-based band's second album, Days.

Check out Real Estate's It's Real:

Saul Williams has unveiled a creepy new clip for his new single Dance.

Taken from his most recent album Volcanic Sunlight, Dance features the outspoken beat poet and rapper wandering around a spooky house with a hood over his face.

Check out the video for Dance:

Finally, The Roots have released a gruesomely violent video for their recent single Make My, featuring bullet wounds, gun battles and street fights.

Thankfully, it's a shortened version of the four-minute song - also featuring guest rapper Big Krit - that will feature on the Philidelphian hip-hop collective's upcoming album Undun.

Take it easy with this one - and maybe don't watch it if the boss is wandering around your office.
