This is one of those videos that remind me of the early days of alternative — a homespun, analog and within six degrees of R.E.M. — but what makes it particularly resonant is the last three minutes, when we look out the window and the visuals take on a spark and color as the guitars crescendo and wash reality away under a sound wave. Consider it an acid test: Is it noise, or blissed-out catharsis?
