Video of The Day: Amen Dunes

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.

Sometimes I forget just how much I love the Amen Dunes record Love. It's a masterwork of lo-fi magnetism and penetrating intensity, and "Splits Are Parted" is one of several favorite songs from that gorgeous album (see also: "Lonely Richard," "Everybody is Crazy," "I Can't Dig It," and "Love"). The video for "Splits Are Parted" is electric in its simplicity, visually startling without much clutter, an effect that somehow works with the slow burn of the song. If this isn't part of your record collection yet, do yourself a favor. Video and audio for "Lonely Richard" below.
