Music Video Spotlight: You Won't

Starting the music video for You Won't's song "Three Car Garage" with a blitz of home video clips is a perfect fit considering how minimalist the overall feel of the video is, and yet for the rather sparse layering on the track it fits perfectly. This isn't a studio piece that has 14 different samples laid over one another and a super glossy sound, "Three Car Garage" has a troubadour sound to it. It's folksy and resembling something close to Spoon, but even lighter and even less complex. Yet, for such a mellow song, it sure seems like the guys of You Won't have overdosed on caffeine in a spectacular way. It all amounts to feel like the kind of video that two friends in high school would make on a whim with nothing to do on a Saturday in the fall. It's sheer unadulterated self-amusement, while still managing to throw in a little message about the futility of working yourself to insanity to afford the "perfect" life.

He's a TV junkie with a penchant for watching the same movie six times in one sitting. If you really want to understand him you need to have grown up on Sgt. Bilko, Alien, Jurassic Park and Five Easy Pieces playing in an infinite loop. Recommend something to him - he'll watch it.
