Today I came across the newest Jicks video for ‘Gardenia’ which is oddly enough, my favorite song off of ‘Real Emotional Trash’. Every time Stephen Malkmus makes a video it manages to get a bit wierder if that is humanly possible. ‘Gardenia’ takes the new album artwork and brings it to life, literally. It features lip synching cameos from Girl Talk (and his forever attached headphones), Ratatat, The Cribs, and even Brian Bell. Sadly though, there is no Malkmus in the video which is always a downside. I don’t know about you, but I miss his thespian song acting. Either way this video is brilliant.
