From Luluc, the Brooklyn-via-Australia duo of Zoe Randell and Steve Hassett comes “Small Windows,” a dreamy lullaby of exquisite indie folk from their album Passerby, produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner. The beautiful animated video by Nacho Rodrigues with art direction by Sara Lopez isn’t so much something you watch, but rather a strange and wonderful place you travel through. The National’s Aaron Dessner recorded and produced the album in Aaron’s garage, attracting guest players from Bon Iver, Beirut, Sufjan Stevens’ band, and of course The National. Luluc’s Passerby is out today on Sub Pop Records and the duo will play Seattle and Los Angeles next week.
I like to debate which television shows have the best opening credit sequences from time to time. Currently, I love Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones — which are basically the opposite of one another. But I now have to throw True Detective into the mix as well.1
SO well done. Amazing song. Better visuals. I would watch the show just to watch this opening each week.
