Aldous Harding - Blend

I caught New Zealand singer/songwriter Aldous Harding earlier this year at SXSW, and honestly was somewhat perplexed by her mix of quirky folk and bizarro strands of pop.  But it works.  And it works well.  Aping on the Playboy bunny USO scene from "Apocalypse Now," the artist's new video for "Blend" finds her decked out in a cowgirl bikini outfit, dancing a go-go, all in front of a blank, white background.  Given the low-key and subdued nature of the song, the effect is eerie.  Watch the video below, and get Harding's "Party" LP from 4AD.
