Video of The Day: The Courtneys

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.

Clever video tricks abound in the video for the glorious little ditty "Silver Velvet." The Courtneys, the Vancouver outfit with a penchant for the 90s, have an obvious sweet tooth for the label their second record is to be released on - the one and only Flying Nun. A sunny day and backwards everything give complementary visuals to the jangling grit of the song. I pretty much love everything about the sugary blue sky fuzz of "Silver Velvet" and I can't wait to get my hands on the band's new record.
