Like any genre, web music videos have their own conventions. These days you often see found footage, colorized for a nostalgic effect. While this can be gorgeous, I’m thrilled when someone breaks the mold, and this Cindy Sherman-esque clip from Eagle Rock’s LA Vampires is a glorious example. Frontwoman Amanda Brown, formerly of Pocahaunted, sings to the camera in varying costumes and poses; her body language is alternately awkward, hilarious, and elegant, and it's refreshing to someone who is able to deploy physical performance with a sense of humor. Combined with the warped tape-deck sounds of Matrix Metals, Amanda's cyberborg-era vocals form a fine soundtrack to the end of a club night, stumbling home, searching for your far-off mind.
