Gotye: State of the Art
Earlier this year we noted that Australian-based international pop star Gotye, with his multi-platinum album Making Mirrors, had (indirectly) put Raymond Scott back at the top of the charts. Scott's voice (from the Manhattan Research, Inc. 2-cd set) is sampled in the album track "State of the Art." We hadn't gotten around to posting the official video for the song, and herein rectify our oversight. Unfortunately, Scott's voice was omitted from the video soundtrack, but it's still a great recording, set to eye-popping animation by Greg Sharp and Ivan Dixon of Rubber House.
