Speculative Shoegaze

What could go wrong? Nothing. M83. Thanks Dirk (AGAIN).

Nice!

There's been a few good, speculative music videos coming out recent years, like this one by Bon Iver, "Holocene".

It's more down to earth, I would say, than M83's "Wait", but some of the same elements are there, the child, the cosmos (in different scales, "Holocene" never leaves earth), the serious and the playful. The ending of "Holocene" very much hints at the relation between nature and music, with the rhythm in those cliffs, a result of the weather and the sea bashing at the shore for ages, an endless improvisation of nature, manifesting some very complex objects.
