9. Flying Lotus "Until the Quiet Comes"
Director: Kahlil Joseph
The video for Flying Lotus' "Until the Quiet Comes" isn't just a music video, it's a transcendent experience. The video is visually stunning—the image of the child bleeding out is haunting as it is beautiful—and open for interpretation. The most amazing part might be watching the gun shot victim with the "J Dilla Changed My Life" T-shirt get up after getting shot because we're not totally sure if he actually did that or the footage is just playing backwards.
Either way, with this video alone Flying Lotus went from being an underground mainstay to being selected by the Sundance Film Festival for its 2013 Short Film Program.
