Music videos are artistic extensions of the songs themselves, with many visual accompaniments becoming just as, if not more iconic than the song it was created for. As usual, some of our favourite songs of the week also had some of our favourite videos, with this week's list including Arig, Danny Brown, GIMMY, J Mascis, Jebediah, Molly Lewis, Riovaz, Rowena Wise, The Smile and Thelma Plum!
