WATCH: Here We Go Magic Release New Video, Stream the Entire Album Now on AOL Spinner

Directed by Sean Pecknold, Here We Go Magic‘s new video for “How Do I Know” stars Janet Pants as a happy-go-lucky dancing robot who is being returned to the factory by her owner. Pecknold explains, “It takes place in the not-so-distant future where you will be able to custom order human like robots for your pleasure, and although some people will probably still be partial to the human flesh, I think some conflicts of emotion will arise. Humans, love, sex, technology, dancing, the future!” Watch above!

Watch: New Video for Here We Go Magic’s “Make Up Your Mind”

In the midst of preparing to release their upcoming album, A Different Ship, Here We Go Magic found the time to make a new video for the first single of the album, “Make Up Your Mind.” Directed by Nat Livingston Johnson and Gregory Mitnick, the video features a leather vest-clad Luke Temple terrorizing (or pleasuring?) a series of ladies in the their underwear with his crazy ghost powers.
