Like any genre, web music videos have their own conventions. These days you often see found footage, colorized for a nostalgic effect. While this can be gorgeous, I’m thrilled when someone breaks the mold. This Cindy Sherman-esque clip from Eagle Rock’s LA Vampires is a glorious example. Frontwoman Amanda Brown sings to the camera in varying costumes and poses. Her body language is awkward, hilarious, and beautiful, and it’s refreshing to see an artist willing to use her body humorously. Brown’s vocal over the warped tape-deck sounds of Matrix Metals are a fine soundtrack to the end of a club night, stumbling home, searching for your far-off mind. via Visitation Rites
