Song: No One Does It Like You
Artist: Department of Eagles
Album: In Ear Park
Label: 4AD
Notes: none
Analysis: I checked out DoE’s album a few months back when it started appearing on everyone’s best of the year lists, but just couldn’t get into it. This video however, has me wondering if I gave up on the group too early. Musician Daniel Rossen is also a member of Grizzly Bear, a band that I half-like, so I’m thinking I might half-like In Ear Park as well. It’s one of the more interesting music videos of recent memory, in a way that the best music videos used to be: odd, yet complimenting to the music. The singing ghosts are great, and the colors are beautiful. Really good video from a band that just got re-added to my checklist.
