Evident Video Genius

I heard about this video from a friend. It's for a song called Evident Utensil, by a band called Chairlift. And if that was all there was to it, I wouldn't care, being too old to be into bands, I'm sorry to say.

But the video is amazing, using the kind of compression artifacts you often see in web-based video to make a visual statement. It's what the hybrid offspring of mpeg-4 and a 1968 Fillmore West poster might be, if you crossed your eyes just a bit.

And the song isn't bad, either.

(Sorry, the extrahorizontal proportion of the video frame doesn't fit into the narrow size of my blog. If you want to see its full width, or watch it in HD, check out the YouTube page.)
