So ethereal is Hope Sandoval’s presence on occasion that the thought of her being less here brings to mind the Cheshire cat, fading until nothing was left but his smile. In hope’s case, it wouldn’t be a smile that remained; two eyes looking down, half-closed, would be the last to go. The video for “I’m Less Here” is itself a slender wisp, multiple exposures helping to create a spectral atmosphere to complement the track’s own feel.

I’m Less Here is part of a Mazzy Star 7” release for Record Store Day 2014, backed with “Things” on the b-side.
