Well hell. It’s been way too long since I did one of these, so I guess it’s about time. Hope you enjoy!
This song was off my absolute favourite album of last year; without exaggeration, I generally listen to the thing and then hit “repeat” as soon as it’s over. Not only is it a fantastic song, but the video is awesome. Pure storytelling—no words required.
I can’t explain why I enjoy this song and its accompanying video; it’s just one of those quirky, odd things that catches my fancy.
I am ashamed to say I only recently learned about this band, but I’m making up for lost time. I am *not* ashamed to say that my friend, author Jemiah Jefferson, turned me on to them (blatant friend plug, yes. Please go buy all of her stuff, she’s amazing).
This video is fantastic. It’s basically just a series of .gifs, strung together, and lip-synched. Really creative and fun to watch (and listen to, as well). A couple NSFW bits.
I enjoy it when bands pull off a successful homage to a genre or decade. This one does it with both the song and the video.
So, there we go. I’ll do my best to make this a semi-regular thing again, if people seem to like it. Happy Saturday!
