Kate Bush’s “Lake Tahoe” is a near-ambient 11-minute piece of music about a spirit woman searching for her lost dog, and it’s somehow one of the more straightforward songs on her beguilingly weird 2011 album 50 Words For Snow, one of our favorite LPs of last year. Now, Bush herself has made a visual accompaniment for a five-minute chunk of the track, animating its story with shadow-puppets. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but I somehow had goosebumps for almost the entire running time, and I got a tiny bit choked up when the lady and the dog came face to face. That’s partly because dogs are awesome and partly because Kate Bush has put together yet another bewitching piece of work. Watch it below.
