sinews stand apart

Remember how beautiful and poignant Chris Landreth's animated short "Ryan" was? The Canadian Filmmaker won the oscar for it in 2004. It's easy to take for granted how visually impacting the animation effect used in the film was at the time.

This gorgeous music vid from the Memory Tapes for their tune, "Yes I Know" takes that visual cue further again - and watching the effect is so engrossing, it almost doesn't matter whether you've even paying attention to the song. In that way I don't think it's a big success for the band - music videos should probably push a commercial agenda - but it's also totally unusual for a music video to transcend like this one does, so it completely stands out as capital-A Art.
