Ange Takats is a singer-songwriter, but she used to be a foreign correspondent.
She spent a couple of years working for a major news agency in Bangkok, earning a pittance and seeing a lot of weird and interesting things. She’ll be playing a gig with Paul Kelly at the Byron Bay writers festival this weekend, where she’ll also be spruiking her excellent book about the whole Bangkok stint – The Buffalo Funeral.
BUT back to the music. Ange teamed up with photographer Nat Brunovs to make this very cute stop-motion video clip and I think it’s a winner. The song’s pretty good too, and a must-listen for fans of Joni Mitchell.
Let it also be known that Nat is a generally good sort, and she let me stay at her house and look after her dog for a week after she’d known me for approximately four minutes.
