When it comes to music, I think it’s fair to say that my taste is not hugely respected among my It’s Nice That colleagues. It’s probably jealously that I am not in slavish thrall to whatever manufactured hipster counterculture they’re being fed by tastemaking types with beards as full as their bank accounts. Or it’s because I quite like Les Miserables. Anyway with normal Monday Morning Music Video aficionado Alex Bec away this week, here I am delivering you a cracking musical-based start to your week.
James Houston’s Palomides for Washington Irving has been billed as the word l’s first sterogram music video. By defocussing your eyes in a Magic Eye style the video becomes a 3D treat (although as with Magic Eye pictures I imagine there will be those naysayers whose brains refuse to play along).
