In this week’s edition of Friday’s Video Picks, HAIM breaks hearts, The Flaming Lips rock out to Tame Impala, and a superhero regains his powers in Young Galaxy’s new video. The very first episode of Indie88 Black Box Sessions sees Matt Mays performing one of his current favourite songs. July Talk stops by for a visit. And PUP surprises the audience at Halifax Pop Explosion by bringing Damian Abraham on stage for a Fucked Up song.
