New video from Laura Stevenson & the Cans for their song “The Healthy One” off Sit, Resist.

I think this is probably one of the cutest videos ever. Looks like it was fun to make too!

I should include some words, but I won’t. This year in music simply spoke for itself in all manner of different ways. I will say that I find it hilarious that my favorite albums of 2011 and 2010 are about each other. (Apocalypse and Joanna Newsom’s Have One on Me.)
