Help the world welcome the new Justice album with a pair of prog-tastic music vids.
There’s no denying the resounding influence of 1970s prog rock on Parisian electro-heads Justice (whom many have called the heirs to Daft Punk’s giant pyramid throne) and their much-anticipated second record, “Audio Video Disco,” which was released yesterday.
The two videos below do well to match the enormity of these new tracks, particularly “Civilization,” which literally has glowing, stampeding space buffalo trying to dodge falling boulders as the world falls apart. Glad to know that somebody other than Kanye West wants to bring back what bands like Yes and King Crimson loved about music.

For a band so prolific, ambitious and endearingly experimental, it’s a wonder that more Flaming Lips side projects haven’t emerged over the years. Several dozen collaborations have come and gone, but rarely anything that wasn’t released under the official Lips’ umbrella. It makes sense, given that the Oklahoma natives have never shied away from casting a wide net in its 30-odd years.
