Celluloid Bachelor #16: Suckers "Easy Chair"

As we slouch closer to the end of this year and the beginning of the next, you see writers everywhere compiling "best of" lists, rating and re-evaluating books, movies, albums, and just about every other cultural artifact you could shake a stick at. One of the lists I tend to avoid even thinking about it "Best Song of 2009" because there are just so damn many and by the end of a full rotation around the sun, I often can't remember the name of the song (or artist) that had me swooning eleven and a half months earlier.

If I did do such a list, though, you can believe that the song this video was made for would be on it. As would probably every other song on the Suckers four-track EP - it was that brilliant and different.

The film itself is a trippy static journey through extra-dimensional space and nature. Doesn't make sense to you? Check it out. You'll see.
