Song of the Day: "Islands" by the xx

>> Thursday, September 2, 2010

The most grossly underplayed song from the most grossly overplayed album of the year. And, maybe my favorite music video from the last 3 years. It is an incredible story that literally unfolds from one shot to another. Stumbling from beauty to tragedy in a series of repeated takes. It is ingenious. And I am jealous for not thinking of it.

I beg of you, watch the video, closely, from beginning to end. It's simply moving, and movingly simple.
