Vampire Weekend debuted the second video from their recently released Contra for "Giving Up the Gun." But this time around, a handful of stars are giving them their support, including the RZA, Lil' Jon, Joe Jonas and Jake Gyllenhaal in an indoor-tennis themed porcelain dream, with the Ivy leaguers playing in the background.
For point of reference, RZA is the ref, Jonas is the first opponent, Gyllenhaal is the next and Lil' Jon plays the part of French inspiration. A fantastic video, indeed.
Liars premiered their video for "Scissor," the first track off the band's new Sisterworld album, earlier today. The video finds lead-singer Aaron Angus floating adrift on an inflatable life raft chucking boulders into the ocean before they seek their inevitable revenge on him.
Sisterworld is scheduled for release Tuesday, March 9 via Mute Records.

Brooklyn three-piece Antlers recently released their video for "Bear" off the band's often-celebrated debut album Hospice. The cold-hearted deciduous themed video a beautiful twenty-something woman dragging some big ass metaphor down the dirt road.
It looks like the film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Road, but with more well-fitting clothes.
