Peach, Plum, Pear

Seeing ModCloth’s new Peach, Plum, Pear Dress reminded us of one of our favorite music videos—  Echo Panda‘s grainy, vintage-feeling spec film for indie-folk warbler Joanna Newsom’s song of the same name. We love the little imperfections of the video and its subjects,  and the intimacy of those recorded moments. Plus, couldn’t you see the Peach, Plum, Pear Dress fitting perfectly into the video?

What about you guys? What are your favorite music videos?

    This video reminds me of one a fan made for The Most Serene Republic. I actually like it better than most of their professional videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoasGWy4HCw

    I think this video is really pretty……but that lady’s voice sounds awful! I seriously thought it was a joke at first!

    This song by Magnetic Fields is one of my favorites, and the music video (although I don’t think it’s an official one) is very similar to this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eo8vW_0H_Kg

    I’m partial to the oddly goofy, yet upbeat: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZjpWs1h7pU

    I really like the video, it reminded me of an old movie you’d find in your grandmothers attic. And as for Newsom’s voice I liked it, it was unique and had an ugly-pretty ring to it!

    Her voice reminds me a lot of Malvina Reynolds..you know the “little boxes” song!
    Loved loved the song!

    My favorite video right now is probably Modest Mouse’s “rat king”

    This is great! Totally reminds me of the “little boxes” song, completely agree.

    This is a great fan made music video for Grizzly Bear’s song Two Weeks, it’s so beautiful: http://bit.ly/9mGM6j
