SKS & MBD’s “Lotus Eaters” video from ‘Penelope’

I got Penelope in the mail yesterday… wow, I love it.  It’s the piece of art that Sarah Kirkland Snider wrote with the voice Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) in mind.  The video for “The Lotus Eaters” just got released.  It’s a haunting, lovely song that I think is a cornerstone of the album.  You know, the album that’s only been in my hands for 12 hours.  I can’t get enough of it. :)

The Lotus Eaters

video by Murat Eyuboglu + David Sarno

Shara was 7 months pregnant when it was being filmed.  Penelope is out now.  It’s a beautiful, beautiful, gorgeous, gorgeous record.  Shara’s operatic-meets-indie-rock voice rule the day.  Go get it from Amazon or from New Amsterdam Records directly.
