Björk's Wanderlust

Despite the fact that most tracks on Björk's Volta album have failed to convince me and that it might therefore be the first Björk album I'm not going to buy, I have to admit that I really like some of the aesthetic ideas Björk and her co-conspirators have come up with to illustrate her music.

My favourite video so far is beyond doubt Encyclopedia Pictura's Wanderlust which offers an alluring peek into an atavistic world inhabited by Sendakesque beasts and Ungereresque flora.
