Music Video Monday: Pretty things

With exception for a Rob Zombie laundry commercial

The video for Brianna Gaither’s “Find You” is everything I want in a video, local or no: great storytelling concept, mesmerizing cinematography, beautiful visuals, gorgeous song. If this doesn’t win you to Gaither’s team, I don’t know what will.

Approximately a bajillion years ago, the male two-thirds of Seapony lived in Oklahoma. Punks in love, rebelling against authority, all for love!

Chad Valley’s gleeful “Now That I’m Real (How Does It Feel?)” gets one of the most tender, heartfelt music videos I’ve ever seen.

A thousand watercolor paintings were used to make stop-motion animation. This is a visual feast.

Hometapes is becoming my favorite label, as this studio performance cut from the label’s Collections of Colonies of Bees is a smile-inducing blast of crescendo-ing O-prog.

There’s a Mountain Goats shout-out in what must be one of the most entertaining (and most necessary, and most insulting) public service announcements ever.

Rob Zombie directed a commercial for Woolite? Entitled “Torturer”? What?!?
