Get your eyes on the EXTREME CLOSE-UP video for 'Just Make It Stop', the first clip from Low's recently-released The Invisible Way, out on Sub Pop.

As well as being an ineffably pretty song, with, presumably, Jeff Tweedy's (here in producer mode) influence lying in the immaculately rendered poppy jangle, the video's also a hat-tipping worthy piece of work from director Phillip Harder. From the opening shots of recording studio equipment to the eventual takeover by, seemingly, giant watercress, it's an ace clip; watch out in particular for a very fine slow-mo shot of snails climbing up a fretboard. Fill your boots, David Attenborough.
