Oh, demon abhor me

So I quite enjoyed Festival's album* this year, and what should pop up in my inbox today but a video for the, I guess single, "Valentine." Which is not at all what I expected, but in a very enjoyable way (I have got to give bands more credit for having a sense of humour), and not just because my old Stylus comrade (and now Festival member) Mike Powell shows up as an objectified sex symbol. Although if you know the guy that alone is pretty freakin' hilarious.

*Did I really use the phrase "create a sinecure against the disenchantment of quotidian existence"? Yes, yes I did. I wish I'd caught that.

I like this a lot!
Even before Mike!

That's kind of how I felt about the album! I've been lucky recently, most of the stuff I've heard that involves friends has been genuinely great.
