New Feature: Video of the Week – Gossip

Review by Royal Stuart

What better way to launch Click & Dagger’s new video feature than with the Northwest’s own Gossip. Philip Andelman, who has directed videos for a wide variety of bands including the Silversun Pickups, Jonas Brothers and Jay Z, takes us on an 80s-themed extravaganza. Beth Ditto’s larger-than-life presence takes a back seat to the colorful overlays and bloated-out graphics that permeate the video as the song builds.

And oh my, that song! As the third single from 8-month old Music for Men, it had been a while since I’d listened to it. But seeing it here, revived, it was difficult to keep myself from leaping up and getting my groove on right here at my desk. I’ll definitely be watching and listening to this one for many months to come.
