Pearl Jam "Jeremy" (Mark Pellington, dir.)

While music video production has slowed down amidst the COVID-19 pandemic — although a restart appears on the near horizon — it's a good time to revisit this re-released, remastered and now uncensored version of Pearl Jam's 1992 classic "Jeremy" video that has essentially never been seen before. This original cut increases all the power of the original, making clearer the effects of bullying, teen suicide and the easy availability of guns.

Low "Double Negative Triptych" (Ben Chisholm, Karlos Rene Ayala, Mark Pellington, dir.)

Three videos in support of the new Low album Double Negative come together as one in this longform artpiece. Things start with Ben Chisholm's "Quorom," then segues into "Dancing And Blood" directed by Karlos Rene Ayala, and culminates with director Mark Pellington tackling "Fly," with all three seeming like an Exquisite Corpse traipse through memory and dream.

Silversun Pickups "Nightlight" (Mark Pellington, dir.)

As befits a song called "Nightlight" there's just a glimmer a light in the otherwise dark reality that we find in this epic music video return by Silversun Pickups. Las Vegas. Boardwalk Empire actress Meg Steedle comes closest to the heart of darkness here, navigating a nightmare filled with sex, death, revenge, paranoia and all the other charms of Las Vegas that don't get mentioned in the ad campaigns.
