We thought we’d add a little something to our listing festivities this year. It’s just a little bonus something for you our loyal reader (which is no way designed to buy us more time as we sort out our album/ep list, uh uh, no Sir). Tomorrow we will share with you our favourite gig of 2014 and today, for the first time ever; we crown a video of the year.
Public Service Broadcasting – “Gagarin”
There could only be one winner here really. While there have been many beautiful, cinematic and thought provoking videos released in the last 12 months, but not one was as surprising, fun and batshit brilliant as the sight of two astronauts (who may or may not be Willgoose and Wrigglesworth (it’s not, sadly)) busting some funk-ass moves all over the place. They’d teased the album with a short trailer that featured a more reverential soundtrack, so that they then dropped this groovalicious tune with its smile inducing video, it caught us all on the hop and had us buzzing with excitement. It’s fantastic, fast, funky and oh so much fun. We bet more than one of you has tried out some of the moves at your Christmas party this year as well.
