Summer is the Worst

Michael Leviton is New York's resident ukulele crooner. His delivery is sweetly mopey, and intensely charming. And all the mope is made up for in spades with a gentle kindness in lyrics, vocals and instrumentation. Really how can you not be charmed by a ukulele? A few days ago he posted his new video and I must admit it is quite a masterpiece. While watching him sing with puppets and make a valiant putt-putt effort is great fun, this new video is a compact morsel of brilliant cinematic heartbreak. I highly recommend the high resolution version, but I've posted the youtube version here:
