Sam Taylor-Wood single (!)

... as a corollary to the previous post, here's the 'video' for her new single I'm In Love With A German Film Star, produced by the Pet Shop Boys:

Well, since you ask, I don't dislike it. It's got the same simple, undulating melodic line as The Beatles' I Am The Walrus, a distorted but homogenised soundscape which is not dissimilar to the sonic backwash of My Bloody Valentine's celebrated pre-BritPop albums and a distinct, upfront keyboard and drum machine patina that's typical of Pet Shop Boys themselves.

UPDATE: A year or so after I first saw this video, it inspired me to create a similar video for a friend's composition.
