This video has been featured on the ‘buddha before, it is Lemon Demon’s self produced masterpiece “Word Disassociation”. This guy (Neil Cicierega) is 100% pure talent. He cuts his finger and more talent drips on the floor than some people will ever have in their entire bodies, that’s his level of talent. Don’t believe me? Peep his resume: internet famous at 14, first album at 17, now at age 19 he’s hit the 5 album mark. Yeah, I thought so. So then Joe from the AV Club shows me this video for the SoftLightes’ Heart Made of Sound.
So you see the reason for my title for this comparison, and why I posted this. I found myself transfixed for the entirety of the Lemon Demon video, and I could listen to that song forever. The Softlightes song kind of bored me and the video, though infinitely more polished and impressive on a technical level, left me distracted and bored, which as I said earlier this week, is what most music videos do for me. Interesting, no?
