Video Of The Day: Pond

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.

I've been waiting a little while for some new Pond, and the band hasn't messed around with making more epic, giddily confounding psych rock noise. The clip for the title track of their new record "Man It Feels Like Space Again" is, as one might expect, absolutely insane and I all sorts of love it. 

Like a (slightly) less crass Wonder Showzen episode, the video follows the exploits of a retro-inspired kiddie show, complete with peeping tom muppet-like characters, among others, and suits the wonderful weirdness of the song just right. Space is, of course, involved, but I won't ruin the surprise. A perfectly wacky thing to see just before the weekend. 

And make sure to grab the record when it's released next week, y'all.
