New Mercury Rev Video – “Butterfly’s Wing”

The psychedelic Upstate New Yorkers in Mercury Rev focus on a cat with butterfly wings and a flying elephant (who can shoot fireworks out of his trunk) in their video for Snowflake Midnight’s “Butterfly’s Wing.” But while the old “butterfly effect” saying uses China as an example, this clip focuses on a fantastical Japanese landscape complete with rice paper boats and jellyfish, twisty tree branches, dragonflies, kindly whales, and flower pedal rainstorms. Speaking of which: Forget about the butterfly effect; it was more likely mushrooms that started this storm.


Continuing with this theme, keep in mind Snowflake’s glossy, trippy “Senses On Fire.”
