Scottish band The Aliens provides "I am the Unknown" from their album Astronomy for Dogs (what else?). It's got a great sound reminiscent of some of the Beatles' more vocal-heavy ballads*, and it definitely encouraged me to check out the rest of their catalog. The animation was well-done, but nothing spectacular. I'm hoping for a hand-drawn short in the near future. Someone like Bill Plympton or John K would fit perfectly with Zune's offbeat and weird style they're going for.
*It reminded me a lot of Tears For Fears' "Who Killed Tangerine?" as it featured much of the same psych-pop sound. If you like this song, definitely check out "Who Killed Tangerine?".
