"Book of Love" from Fraser A. Gorman
In "Book of Love", Melbourne's Fraser Gorman has written an outstanding song -- melodic, bluesy, and witty. But the video is pretty damn great, as well. It may be the only music video you watch this year in which the protagonist's sidekick is a pet chicken named Detective Greggs. But as the chicken aids Fraser in finding a deeper understanding of love, we also are treated to assists from Fraser's band, the director of the video, and members of other Melbourne bands, including Courtney Barnett and her band.
The song is taken from Fraser's upcoming album, but it also is available as a digital download at the Bandcamp link below. Yes folks, for one Australian dollar this infectious tune can inhabit your computer and mobile devices. Can you resist? Not if you are alive.
