Boards of Canada just released their long-awaited new album Tomorrow’s Harvest. Here’s a fan-made video to the song “Reach For the Dead.” I like the use of glitch art to create haunting imagery of flight that matches the soaring sounds.
Some good news — The Guardian reports that Move Your Money UK succeeded in getting millions of customers to leave the top banks in 2012:
An estimated 2.4 million customers quit the UK’s five biggest banks in 2012 as people “voted with their feet” in response to a string of scandals, according to latest figures.
The Move Your Money UK campaign and website, which issued the figures, said they showed a “mass movement” away from the big banking groups: Lloyds, Royal Bank of Scotland/NatWest, Barclays, HSBC and Santander.
Laura Willoughby, Move Your Money chief executive, said: “The constant slew of scandals last year has opened the floodgates, and people are beginning to realise they don’t have to put up with the arrogance of the big banks.”
