WATCH: The Black Keys' 'Sister' Video

A new video for you on this post-election Wednesday. A clip for The Black Keys' track "Sister" has emerged, and it's perhaps also a fan-made video -- although definitely sporting some fancy camerawork.

Gary Clark Jr., master of blues, proves in his newest visuals that he "Ain't Messin 'Round." In the new clip, Clark's lyrics of "play it cool" are equally matched by a smooth image displayed by the Austin crooner. The track, of course, comes off his debut album, Blak and Blu.

NEEDTOBREATHE performed on Conan Wednesday night, thus marking the band's fifth late night appearance this past year (Leno, Letterman, Ferguson, Kimmel and now Conan).

WATCH: Austin City Limits Festival 2012 Highlights [Day 3]

This year's Austin City Limits Music Festival proved to be one of the most successful to date. Hosted on the grounds of Zilker Park, the final one-weekend event (2013 will be stretched to two weekends) included a full roster topped by The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, The Black Keys, Jack White, Florence + The Machine, The Avett Brothers, AVICII, BASSNECTAR and The Roots.

As you know, we covered the entire event from Friday, Oct. 12, through Sunday, Oct. 14., providing live tweets, interviews and photos all day/night. But here are some of the highlights:

SUNDAY (Day Three)
The final day of ACL kicked of with British indie rockers ∆ (Alt-J) unleashing an energetic set. Our recent FutureSounds pick, they are rising quickly in the U.S., with "Tessellate" being one of their frontrunning tracks. Next, Kimbra performed (her solo set) and drove the enormous crowd wild with her undeniable stage presence. No, seriously, she commands the stage. If we were handing out awards, the flamboyant 22-year-old would get the one for best stage presence. Dressed in a pink pon-pon-like top and similar oversized grass-green skirt, she made certain all eyes were on her from start to finish, delivering a breathtaking performance.

SATURDAY (Day Two)

The day opened with sets from Quiet Company and Caveman, smaller bands who are both gaining momentum as of late. Caveman, specifically, had a busy weekend, performing multiple times that day with appearances at the Xbox Lounge for press later that night. Unfortunately, as Civil Twilight took the stage, looming rain became more certain. Prior to the Festival's start, weather was already a topic of discussion (it rained Thursday night as we were arriving in Austin). But Civil Twilight -- natives of South Africa, who were featured earlier this year in Variance -- played on, and gave Austin a wonderful, lively show. Clouds turned to light rain as Dev opened with her hit "Bass Down Low" before a noticeably younger audience. Despite only casually dubbing vocals over her tracks, she probably had one of the most engaged crowds all weekend. Her energy was certainly not lacking, and at times the audience came close to matching her volume as they knew every lyric to her songs, such as "In The Dark" and Far East Movement's "Like A G6," a song on which she was featured.
