The Aliens For Zune Arts, "Laika" Music Video

The Aliens (MySpace) -- the band that infamously rose from the ashes of the legendary Beta Band -- made a new song and music video in collaboration with Zune Arts.

While it's clear that the days of big budget music videos have all but passed into oblivion, the video is plenty of fun. As you would expect from the Aliens -- considering the title of their debut LP, Astronomy For Dogs and the name of this new track! -- there's a dog in the film. It's quirky animation totally works for the soulful, funky, beat-bouncing grooves of the Aliens, though, and ought to be thoroughly enjoyed by any fan!

Check it out also at Daily Motion. Every time Microsoft does something like this, I like them more ... and with WIRED giving the new Zune higher marks that the new iPod, I dunno ... I might just buy one someday not too far off!
