I’m not much of one for music videos always, but I’m a sucker for real film.
Crystal Stilts, “Prismatic Room”. This is on my top 30 songs of the year list (stay tuned for that, as well as albums). The melody is completely captivating, it’s dark, it’s airy, yet incredibly warm. A band who sounds too cool, looks too cool, but probably would be your friend.
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, “Everything with You”. I’m just a sucker for Slumberland records, aren’t I? Saw this over on Skatterbrain. If I was in a band, I’d want my videos to look like these. This is how indie pop should sound. Nothing about this band is stale.
