Seen and Heard: Ladyhawke

Ladyhawke's nothing new. I've been listening to (and enjoying) her self-titled album for close to a year now, it's a great addition to the synth based 80's revival that's been infiltrating pop-rock. Without a doubt one of my favorite tracks is "Magic", a slightly darker dance song that now has an appropriately awesome music video that mixes all the best campy fantasy of the decade it recalls with just a hint of Georges Méliès. Just for fun, because the film fanatic in me demands it, let's tangentially post 1902's Le Voyage dans le Moon (A Trip to the Moon) and then not add post the music video more directly (and obviously) influenced by Méliès: "Tonight, Tonight" by the Smashing Pumpkins. Somehow, this became a lesson, kids. Beef up your film IQ and watch this damn movie. It's short, i promise. Next time i'll find a way to sneak in Un Chien Andalou.
