Jam of the Day | Sóley - Smashed Birds

The day after Thanksgiving is a day of sloth, and frantic buying, and people everywhere, and so today I'm slowing it down a little for the Jam of the Day: the video for 'Smashed Birds' by Icelandic artist Sóley is a gorgeous creation of cut paper and stop motion, all representing simple guitars and a moving, haunting voice. It's a breath of fresh air in a day that's become more about spending than remembering to be grateful, and I am grateful today for this video.
