EL VY - "Sad Case / Happiness, Missouri" (MusicMonday)

The band EL VY (the musical collaboration of Matt Berninger of The National and Brent Knopff of Menomena and Ramona Falls) put out one of my favorite records of 2015: Return To The Moon.


EL VY - Sad Case / Happiness, Missouri (Lyric Video)

Now they have released my favorite lyric video to date - featuring the songs "Sad Case" and "Happiness, Missouri."

Instead of just showing text, editor Kelly Lyon has done a fine job combining black-and-white VHS-looking footage with the lyrics in an appropriate font. It creates a nice atmosphere of surveillance footage. Simple and effective.
