Sunday's sit back and relax clip - Smog, Rock Bottom Riser

We all need something nice and 'pretty' to help us come down from a wild weekend, to curb the creeping disquiet at the incoming working week, and to generally help us rest and relax on this, 'the 7th day'.

So today I offer you some Smog. Not exactly a 'pretty' song - Bill Callahan has never been known to offer up glowing nuggets of musical sunshine - but there is something about 2006's A River Ain't Too Much To Love that provides an aquatic wonderland in my mind, music that I can float in ad nauseum. It was a toss up as to whether Id post Rock Bottom Riser or the brilliant Say Valley Maker, and whilst they offer superlative tales on the powers of redemption, I really like this clip - a mesmerising pastiche of psychedelic Japanese=style animation, done on rice paper.
