This month saw the release of videos at complete opposite ends of the spectrum, varying from laid back and hypnotic to unabashedly grotesque.

Wiki and Kwamie Liv had down-to-earth offerings, videos that invited us into their inner circles. Run the Jewels made us question our cat obsessions, Jesse James Solomon made us wary of funhouses, and then there was “Lazarus,” David Bowie’s final music video, which has taken on a deeply poignant and touching dimension since its creator's passing.

January was definitely a month of emotions, and these videos had us feeling the full spectrum.
