David Vandervelde - New "Jacket" Video

One of the year's early surprises is Secretly Canadian artist David Vandervelde. The 22 year old singer/songwriter/glam-rocker/Jack Black lookalike released one of 2007's best straight forward rock records last month in The Moonstation House Band. There is a BIG Marc Bolan/T. Rex influence running throughout the album, but also shades of many other late 60's/early 70's rock as well. The record's first and strongest song, "Nothin' No" was featured in Pop Headwound's January recap as one of the month's finest tracks. It was co-written by former Wilco multi-instrumentalist Jay Bennett. The MP3 is available below for you to check out, and you totally ought to.

We got word recently that he's just wrapped up the video for the album's first single, "Jacket". The label had this to say: "The world's first taste of David Vandervelde came via the "Jacket" b/w "Murder In Michigan" single. One of the catchiest songs on Moonstation, "Jacket" is now a video by up-and-coming Los Angeles-based director Iqbal Ahmed". Check it out in all its grainy 70's-vibe glory here:

Or, if you want to view it with slightly better resolution you can view it at the Secretly Canadian website.
