Andy Shauf "The Worst in You" (video)
Despite its often calamitous, interwoven storyline, Saskatchewan songwriter Andy Shauf's new The Party LP is one of the most charming and gentle releases of the year. With the record now out, he's treating us to a cool cut-and-paste-style video for serene strummer "The Worst in You."

Like an earlier clip for album opener "The Magician," the video was prepped by visual artist Winston Hacking. Similarly, we're exposed to quite a few weird scenes. Without spoiling too much of the fun, this includes a playful miniature terrier doing a balancing act on a child's nose, a cat with a human side, roach-stomping shoe advertisements, shower-hoggin' polar bears, hulking baby monsters, and a sartorial chimp bracing itself to watch you take a dump.

It's a wonderfully ludicrous short film, and you can peep it below.
