How to Feel a Life

There is something about this video that I find extremely, well, heart warming.  The girl in front, awkwardly dancing in a too-long dress that is obviously unaltered vintage.  The lone keyboard on stage churning out pre-made synth beats.  The pairs of spindly legs and the light that catches cheekbones when it’s not creating shadows.  How the performance comes out like a tide – nearly literally – and then sucks itself back in again.  And then it’s over.  Ah, but such is life.

The following is a performance from the band Telepathe at the PS1 in the MoMA.
