The National (rock band) Video: "Slow Show" Mixed to "Masculine Feminine" by Jean Luc Godard

One of the great things about YouTube is the brilliant work that citizen artists put out there on a daily basis. My new favorite band is The National and their great 2007 CD "Boxer." This is a brilliant piece of editorial that combines the song "Slow Show" with Godard's gorgeous black and white footage and the fabulous dark-haired female beauty, Chantal Goya. See Ali McGraw for an American 1960's equivalent. The film is a perfect match for The National's drum and baritone-vocal's driven music (see a lyric sheet the first time you listen). This is a great video. Don't forget...videos are ads for bands. This one is particularly good due to the music AND a fabulous director.
