My Fav Video
Not only are Pavement my favourite ever band and Malkmus my fav intelligent homosapien, this is also my favourite ever music video.
Father to a Sister of Thought is a mellow tune and the super 8 footage really gives it a hazy quality that compliments the laziness and lounge like slide guitar of the song. It also gives off a heat, a mid-western heat in the super-8 footage and an underground club heat that is shown in the sweltering red/orange performance footage.
It's pretty basic, it's just someone following the cowboy dressed band around a ranch while interchanging it with some sweaty performance stock. But to me that's what a music video should do and especially with such a playful band like Pavement, a band of personalities.
