Video Of The Day: Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders f/ Sharon Van Etten

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.

"Come On Back This Way" recently crept its way into my brain, so it feels like the right time to throw it back to the video for this earworm from Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders. The no frills clip stars Mr. Ladder, a sequined dress-clad dancing lady, and a cameo from a hook. You'll see what I mean. The spot that shines on Jack's white gloved hand on his synth lines is a winning nod to 80s video stylings. The song fits the video and vice versa, the theatric vibes of Ladder's deep seen-it-all baritone bringing it all together. Oh, and Sharon Van Etten! Her guest star turn here feels so very right.
