I wish I could dance. I can't...at all, but I wish I could. And music videos like the one for Beat Connection's "Illusion" aren't helping to quell my secret shame that I have all of the rhythm and dance moves of Steve Martin in The Jerk (Do young people know what I'm talking about there? Does anyone under the age of 25 watch that or was that just my household?). The Seattle synthpop/IDM act (not to be confused with the LCD Soundsystem track) dropped the gorgeous track and its video. And I don't know what I'm more impressed by: the churning, dream-like dance-synths (that sounds paradoxical but it makes sense in connection with the track) or the dance-moves of the dancer that's featured in the video. Watch and decide for yourself which makes the bigger impact.
