Contrary to the way we usually select our videos of the day, we didn’t find this one. It found us. Contact is about first contact, extraterrestrials, and baking. Right there, you know it’s going to be worth a look. It’s beautiful, simple and delicate at first but that makes for an eery juxtaposition as first contact goes horribly wrong.
Musician and video artist Jay Stansfield wrote and performed it, Shot on a shoestring budget, Stansfield and company get around their budget limitations in very inventive ways, and the song itself enjoys Stansfields bright, clear melody lines and vocals.
Contact is from Jay Stansfield’s first album Lovism. You can find out more about Jay Stansfield on his Facebook page, if you’re on Facebook. You can also visit his own web site and blog, which appear to be separate sites. And you can order his music here.
And of course, you can hear it on Krypton Radio if you listen for it.
