Mint Julep - Aviary Video + Free Download
New music from Mint Julep, the husband and wife duo Keith and Hollie Kenniff, based in Portland, Oregon. It's a beautiful slice of shoegazey electro-pop, with a suitably dreamy female vocal, as the opening line confirms.
"I lie awake
dreaming of landscapes in the rain"
The mid-section breakdown also reminds me a bit of OMD - just another reason to love it. You can download it for free here.

The video, made by the Berlin-based A Nice Idea Every Day people, succeeds in conveying the ennui of youth, along with an undercurrent of something slightly disorientating (it could be the interesting shaking camera effect).
It's taken from their upcoming new album, Save your season, which is due out in November through Village Green. There's also a Mogwai remix of this song, which will be available shortly - more about that anon.
