BEST MUSIC VIDEOS: ALT-J "EVERY OTHER FRECKLE"
Fast at work on a follow-up for their tremendous debut, An Awesome Wave, Alt-J is back and better than ever with a tremendous pair of music videos for their new single, "Every Other Freckle."
Any fear that the boys from Leeds would miss a step without Gwil Sainsbury around has quickly been dismissed. As far as tributes to getting-down go, this is one for the ages. With vivid lyrical imagery and the always funky electro-folk beats we've come to expect with Alt-J, "Every Other Freckle" is currently on my short list for song of the year. Not that you give any f__ks.
Directed by Olivier Groulx, who has a penchant for making some of the best music videos, the videos for "Every Other Freckle" offer some spell-binding images to go along with a great song. That plural wasn't a typo, there are two videos. One for boys and one for girls.
Ladies first, naturally.
