It’s the end of another sad and odd week dear reader – it’s Record Store Day tomorrow of course, and although your favourite local store will be shut, do go and buy something from them online if you can – they need our help more than ever right now. In the meantime what better way to gently go into the weekend than with this lovely clip from Clem Snide (aka Eef Barzelay), the latest video from their Live From Just Beyond Youtube series which features the song ‘Don’t Bring No Ladder’ recorded with Scott “Avett Brothers” Avett. “It was illuminating for me to see through [Avett’s] eyes,” Barzelay explained of working with Scott. “I’d just been looking at myself for so long, and it’s really hard to do this alone. If you have a partner, someone who can come in where you need a little something and just see it with fresh eyes, it helps.” Take care – see you on Monday.
