In addition to animating his own videos, Calgary creative genius Chad VanGaalen sometimes does visuals for his Sub Pop labelmates. We’ve seen him produce rad clips for J Mascis and METZ, and now he’s made some unnervingly beautiful nature scenes for the Head And The Heart’s “Summertime.” The song, for an excellent synth-inflected pop tune from 2013?s Let’s Be Still, marks violinist and backup singer Charity Rose Thielen’s first go-round on lead vocals with the band. Her influence is a big reason why “Summertime” became such a refreshing departure for a band that typically trades in roots-rock. Even without VanGaalen’s wild animations, it would hit like a flash of color. -- Stereogum
