Video of The Day: Unschooling

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video of The Day are a cut (or two) above. Unschooling 's "Social Chameleon" is the kind of song that's a bit like playing musical chairs - you never quite know when the music is going to stop, or what's going to happen when it does, but until then you've got this nervy, overstimulated energy coursing through you. With this lean, jittery song, the Rouen ensemble picks up the mantle of abrasive, thorny art punk from dearly departed forebears Women and adds a bit of a twist, bringing the rawness out into the sunshine.  There's a playfulness to "Social Chameleon," a mischievous feeling that's echoed in the song's video. As the song careens between waves of prickly riffs and breathlessly off-kilter drums, a rapid barrage of disparate images flashes across the screen. Like the song, it provides a potent dizzying sensation.   Y
