Indie rocker Mac DeMarco fine-tunes his crazy homeless vibes in this latest video for a track of his record Salad Days, directed by his band’s bassist, Pierce McGarry.
M.I.A. & the Partysquad , “Double Bubble Trouble”
M.I.A. directed this video, the latest visual blast from her 2013 album Matangi, and like the bad girl she is, apparently uploaded this uncensored version against her label’s wishes. Is it that scandalous? See for yourself:
