This month was a music video paradise. Rock musicians showed out with ten-minute epics (David Bowie's "Blackstar,"), technicolor plushophilia (Tame Impala's "The Less I Know The Better"), and Blade Runner-style apocalypse (Miike Snow's "Heart Is Full").

We also witnessed some triumphant returns, as both Pusha T and Missy Elliott dropped videos for their new singles. Missy, especially, proved that her art direction hasn't rusted a bit with some insane bejeweled costume and a Pharrell-assisted puppet sequence. Yes, puppets. Read on. It'll all make sense soon.
