Best Videos of 2011 (So Far)

woodkid-ironThis “so far” thing is a bit of a crock.  It’s a way to tickle our own fancies while simultaneously organizing thoughts, collections and memories.  But in the case of music videos, I honestly can’t believe there will any further releases during the rest of the 2011 calendar year that tops this group.  What a fantastic year for the artistic medium.  Prepare to be blown away by some of the most creative images you’ll see this side of reality…and beyond.  Here are the Best Music Videos of 2011 (so far).
