The xx - Islands video

This video by The xx caught my eye today on Pitchfork - it's simple but looks really good and is an understatedly elegant and fresh idea that stands apart from other music videos (unlike, for example, The National's new half-assed video for "Bloodbuzz (Ohio)" which is simple and a very stereotypical "artsy" music video in black and white with pensive shots of the lead singer in various locations). Well done The xx.
