Lawrence band Minus Story has released a new video on YouTube. It's for the single "Stitch Me Up" from the band's album, My Ion Truss, put out earlier this year by Jagjaguwar. And hoo is it weird. Sort of. It's basically this cute artsy chick hanging out in her house. She compares her face in the mirror with a gold skull. She bakes a white lump of clay that by video's end has become a crude, yellow rabbit (evidently, the baking required very little heat, as she removes the rabbit from the oven with her bare hand). She sits at her desk, plays with a toy airplane, then plays piano and guitar along with the music.
The video did not take long or cost much to make and is highly arbitrary (unless I'm missing something), but I wish more local bands would take the time illustrate their songs. It's fun to sit here and watch stuff like this rather than doactual work. I think I'm going to go home and bake a bunny.
