Whilst cruising YouTube during lunch, I stumbled across a most wonderous thing: the new Polyphonic Spree video, which was done by a good Friend of Unfair Park's, photographer Hal Samples. It's for a tremendous track off the band's forthcoming The Fragile Army, and it consists entirely of pictures -- 2,341 still photographs, to be precise -- brought to life by a guy who's always astounding us with how astoundingly talented he is. Dunno how long it'll stay online, so enjoy this while you can. --Robert Wilonsky
