New Music Friday's quite boring this week so let's instead use our time to marvel at the aspect ratio deployed in Caroline Polachek's Ocean Of Tears video. There are times, aren't there, when it feels like 4:3 is giving us less. But that's only if you're thinking hori­zont­ally. Don't be fooled by the dark portions of a YouTube embed: a visionary like Caroline lives their life ver­tic­ally, meaning that in this case a 4:3 video is actually giving us more.

She's on tour this October. Tickets went on sale this morning.
