Rachel Grimes is fantastic. If you enjoy the music in this, here's a rabbit hole for you to fall into.

Very sweet. The film was an interesting choice -- I'm guessing part of why she chose it because it was shot in Kentucky. The video was nice, but I kept thinking maybe there could've been a better choice (though I don't know what that might be.) Rachel's music is so evocative, and the film is kind of flat. Though it does all work in the end, and I did get that bittersweet sense of old-timey longing as it faded out.

I used to love Rachel's a lot (and still do I guess) but I listen to them much less than I used to. (Due in part to my changing tastes and the large iTunes library-shuffle effect.) But Rachel Grimes is great anyway.

I was pointing out earlier in today's Matmos thread that I saw Rachel's and Matmos together on Halloween, 2000. Quite a coincidence that posts should pop up about each of them on MeFi the same day.
