Birds & Batteries singer Mike Sempert has this voice. It's sweet, yet kind of bitter, and totally memorable. And it perfectly suits the longing indie-pop made by this San Francisco Bay Area quartet. If you haven't heard Birds and Batteries do its thing before, this new video for “Strange Kind of Mirror,” off of last year's Panorama, is a good place to begin. Set in the Top Hop barbershop in Oakland, the entire video uses one camera angle, and largely one shot. By the end, Sempert's hair isn't the same. If you haven't heard this band, it's likely you won't be either. Check out the video after the jump.
