I don't love Alt-J, but if this is true some friends I'm going to Sasquatch with will be very happy.
I'm also very happy about Vampire Weekend, saw them on the Contra tour and it was awesome! I could see them sub-headlining for the Postal Service or someone like Phoenix or the Strokes (if either make it, I still believe they could). If not I would be perfectly happy with Vampire Weekend as a headliner.

I was watching the video and decided to take a look at some stuff, mainly all this Gloria Robertson-Smith nonsense.
I took a screen cap of the video and managed to get the painting of the woman that it refers to as "Gloria Robertson-Smith." After some cropping, I put the picture into Google reverse image search. Came up with a couple things, but it looks like the woman in the video is from a painting titled "Die rote Halskette" (translation: The Red Necklace) by German painter Sepp Hilz.
I don't know what this means. Searching "The Red Necklace" brings up a novel about the French Revolution. The (German) Wikipedia page for Sepp Hilz brings up nothing of interest other than the fact that Hilz was a favourite of Hitler's and he did some work for the Third Reich.
I'll keep looking, but this is probably not the clue anyways. It's just weird that they used that image in the video. The actual painting has very little documentation or information on the internet.
If you're going to come in here and speculate with the rest of us please at least type properly and more coherently. It's very hard to take any of your ideas seriously, especially when I have absolutely no idea what you're trying to convey. Thank you.
