Maybe because hippies were always so high they’re music videos were straight up vanilla performances of the song. They didn’t need a director’s whacked vision—they had their own running around in their head already. That’s my theory at least. As such, Grizzly Bear definitely grew up listening to Neil Young, as have a slew of recent bands like Fleet Foxes et al. But maybe they didn’t need so much of the trippy visual thing going on. They’re cool and intriguing, don’t get me wrong, but I’ve always tended to prefer the song first before watching any accompanying video that alters how I experience the music.
On second thought, just what the hell was going on here with the Yardbirds though.
