Laura Shigihara’s Adorably Depressing Minecraft Song

Noted musician/singer/gangsta Laura Shigihara has written a new song about the wonderfully blocky world of Minecraft, titled “Cube Land.” You don’t need to know anything about Minecraft (I certainly didn’t) to enjoy the exceptionally well-made video (I definitely did), even though it’s kind of depressing, albeit mitigated somewhat by the fact that Shigihara wears adorable kitty slippers during parts of it. That’s probably because the song is really, really good and really, really pretty. I’m told Shigihara was inspired to write the song after she ordered one of her gangsta minions, having failed to carry out her orders, to dig his own perfectly square grave.
