Love for Laura Veirs

I was just glancing at the videos in this year's SXSW music video program, and I'm excited to see another entry from folkie-pop singer Laura Veirs.  Last years entry for "Galaxies" was one of my favorite videos and songs of 2006, and I played the album, "Year of Meteors" non-stop for a couple of weeks.  Her entry this year is "Secret Someones" off the same album, shot in Super 8 while on her US tour. 

Things I love about this video:
  • The song is really catchy
  • It starts out in Austin, Texas (and I knew that even before I saw the shot of Emo's)
  • It makes effective use of low-res film
She's got a new album coming out next month.  It is so going on my wishlist.
