Video Of The Week #274 – Mountaintop Junkshop – ‘Bandits’

Bandits is about spending 20 years working in a library, falling into mental illness and addiction and losing a loving part of yourself. It’s more importantly about finding yourself again and reframing suffering as a kind of spiritual sandpaper that shapes us into joyful,  present spiritual beings having a difficult human experience.”

This is Mountaintop Junkshop’s main creative force, Jon Bennett’s summary of their gorgeous new single, which is accompanied by a glorious video, put together by Fraser West.

I mean, come on, who DOESN’T love cats in music videos, even if the footage IS from 100 odd years ago? Enjoy this wonderful alt.folk song with quite brilliant lyrics such as “It’s hard to find a rainbow when the world’s black and white.” Definitely one of the prettiest tracks you’ll hear this year and, despite its many harsh realities, one with a positive message.
