“Nowhere Near My Heart”
Over the weekend I took in a John Lennon tribute concert featuring musicians from the local music scene. Hometown pride aside, I saw one performer who pushed me into the back of my seat: Kori Pop. She did a cover of Lennon’s “For the Benefit of Mr. Kite” that made the song her own. She’s got a voice like a piccolo trumpet and a quirky talent for lovely songs. Her latest video is above. Kori did all the puppetry, animation and photography herself. Both the video and the song are wonderful and will likely only leave you wanting more.
After the jump, a live performance of “Mr. Kite.” At the 1:58 mark Kori executes a hyperspace leap to a parallel dimension.
