Emma Pollock – Dark Skies

I was / am a big fan of The Delgados but as sure as 90’s turned to 00’s quite a few bands and albums slipped through the mental cracks. The Delgados have long since broken up but lead singer songwriter Emma Pollock is still going strong as a solo artist. This video – while nothing ground breaking – is simply very well shot night sky time lapse… probably the most time consuming ways to grab 3 minutes of music video footage! Great song, pay attention to the lyrics.

Jamiroquai: Automaton

The very welcome return of J! From outer space via the 80s, by the looks & sounds of it. And not a moment too soon. This is probably what live action Japanese manga looks like.

Foreign Fields: Take Cover

I have one rule about music videos – no running. I once sat through a music video with someone singing about running while running (borderline autistic, that one). Will let it slide for this beautifully shot black and white video. Just a tiny bit of running with a touching pay-off.
