Not sure how this new Sonnymoon video for the sublime “Nothing Thought” slipped by me but this might be my favorite joint from the duo yet; all the vibey ambience you’ve come to expect from a Sonnymoon plus knocking 90s-rap drums and a bassline that rides out like an ancient mating call. The video itself wavers between home movies and Bill Viola-styles video experiments that are giving me flashbacks to some acid I never took (check 1:39, right before the knocking drums come in). With a haunting hook worthy of Feist–”Take nothing with you when you go / What did you learn, who did you know?”–the whole sh*t is like a ghost story thats more wistful than scary. Come to think of it, I do know how this got by me–everybody who watched this immediately went outside to watch the raindrops fall instead of reposting it on the interborg. (Except me).
