SHOT: R.E.M. - Vincent Moon, director

It's odd to say this, but my favorite music video director right now has not done a traditional music… until now. Director Vincent Moon has complied an amazing body of work called The Take-Away Shows over at the French music blog La Blogotheque. These live, unusually staged performances — typically in Paris — strips away all the artifice of traditional music videos in favor of single-take, organic and usually acoustic performances. Some of my faves include:

  • Grizzly Bear performing "The Knife" A Capella through the streets of Paris.
  • Arcade Fire doing "Neon Bible" en route to what you think will be the stage, but winds up being the audience for "Wake Up."
  • Zach Condon and Beirut letting "Nantes" slowly unfurl and grow.

So, it will be interesting to see if those elements of discovery and spontaneity can translate to a "traditional" music video that was just shot for R.E.M. Michael Stipe and Vincent Moon"Supernatural Superserious" will support the legendary band's new album Accelerate, due out April 1.
