Independent Clauses | n. —unusual words about underappreciated music

April Video Jam, Vol 2

April 7, 2013

Odesza has been on the forefront of my electronic music kick lately, so I’m thrilled that they joined their largely instrumental electro/hip-hop to stop-motion construction paper animation … about the apocalypse. Beautiful and social commentary!

To flip the script all the way over, but keeping the animation theme, here’s Page CXVI’s also-beautiful “Peace Like a River.”

Morgan Manifacier’s “Cold Countries” is a gripping Bon Iver-esque song with an imagery-laden video that serves less as a narrative and more as a visual complement to the audio.


Stephen Carradini and Lisa Whealy write reviews of instrumental, folk, and singer/songwriter music. We write about those trying to make the next step in their careers and established artists.
