Trailer Trad Tunes: The Music Videos of David Dean Burkhart
I stumbled upon these great videos from a guy named David Dean Burkhart while looking for a favorite single, "Painted Indian" by the Brooklyn duo Minks.
Burkharts' videos are face-paced montages of 60's and 70's commercials, vacation films, etc. set to the mood and rhythms of the songs and I think that the results are really enjoyable. I picked mostly upbeat songs that are great for a last reminder of summer as it comes to a close. However, the brilliant Future Islands' Like the Moon is gut wrenching with its strange, sad imagery and lead singer Matt Herring's heartfelt vocals. I took out Le Couleur and replaced it with School of Seven Bells because, while "Scavenger" features racing, "Femme" was a little too racy!
