This video features one static shot of Alex Turner against a white background singing into a tape recorder, and nothing else. There’s an odd humor to the whole production, as he mimes the lyrics with lazy, cheeky irony, but for most part he’s staring into the camera, and the minimalism demands attention paid to the song and the singer.

This is a great video, and so full of great animation (by Anthony F. Schepperd) and great moments that I only wish it could be longer, but that’s probably a selfish impulse, as its compactness makes it all the more impressive.

It’s hard to believe, but this winter marks the 20th anniversary of the release Nirvana’s debut album, Bleach. In honor of this music milestone, Sub Pop is re-issuing Bleach as an expanded CD/double LP. Originally recorded in December, 1988 and released in June of ’89, the album received international recognition after Nevermind took off.

Some of the features include a previously unreleased live recording at the Pine Street Theatre in Portland, Oregon from 1990, and extended liner notes with candid photos. Producer Jack Endino oversaw the sessions as the album was re-mastered at Sterling Sound off of the original tapes. The album is available for pre-order at Sub Pop.
