“Out of Reach” by Bump. The Sweetest One-Shot Video You’ll See for a Very Long Time.

February 15, 2009

Bump is a 4-piece band from the Detroit area.  In addition to producing great music, they’ve also come out with one of the best music videos I’ve seen.  The entire video is one-shot filmed and produced by Grand Rapids, Michigan’s Fulvew Productions.  Kudos to Fulvew as this is the best one-shot sequence I’ve seen in quite some time.

Find out more about Bump at their official website.

Here’s a pretty good one.  Tori Amos covering Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide.”  Far superior to The Smashing Pumpkins version released in 1994…and hey, I like the Pumpkins, too.

**Bonus**  I love Tori’s cover of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” too.  Check it out.
