Video: Vaadat Charigim-Haolam Avad Mizman (The World is Long Lost)
I'm glad goofy, hipster mockery is a universal thing. Vaadat Charigim (that's Exemptions Committee for all you English speakers) are a indie rock band out of Israel. "Haolam Avad Mizman" (The World is Long Lost) sounds like something Yo La Tengo would have recorded for I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One more shoegazey parts, reverb versus morphing into fuzzed filled and excellent choruses and breakdowns. The video is equally a throwback, a cheap but still great green screen shot of the band acting very silly and making fun of several different hipster tropes. It's helps to personify the song's mood, a light and sunny one of getting past anything that might be troubling you, and a great, late summer time song at that.
