One of my favorite tracks from Randy Kaplan's fine album Jam on Rye was "Crew Cut," which details many hairstyles Kaplan had, dreamed of, or dismissed over his lifetime. Like many of Kaplan's best songs, it's funny, literate, and a little bit wistful.
So I was glad to see that Kaplan enlisted the talents of animator Matt Kiel to create a video for the song, and the resulting video is just about a perfect match. Hairstyles galore and a dead-simple concept. Love it.
