Music Video: Bright Eyes, "Hot Knives"

After spending some more time with the latest Bright Eyes album, Cassadaga, I've grown very fond of the song "Hot Knives." Thought it wasn't initially one of my favorite tracks, I like the way it combines the irreverence from Conor Oberst's younger years with a mature, full-bodied sound. Now, it's gotten the music-video treatment, courtesy of the award-winning director Patrick Daughters.


The video isn't embeddable, but I highly recommend watching it online at the Directors Bureau. Clad in a white suit, Oberst is looking like John Lennon circa 1969 without the beard, and the psychedelic visuals certainly don't hurt. I particularly love the effect where the image of the singer is projected onto his own torso. Give it a look and let me know what you think.
