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.
Father John Misty' aka Josh Tillman's tale of an awful romantic tryst gets a video that'd be more fitting for an ode to self-love, which maybe is indeed what this song is actually all about. Literally, kind of.
Just like the sights in William Tyler's Tennessee video "The Sleeping Prophet," “Daddy I Cut My Hair” was filmed in the Appalachians, this time around Pennsylvania. And like in that video, here Matt Amato gives you a real sense of what much of the area is about: beautiful, cold hills, somewhat-busy roadways, and the sometimes-distant Appalachian hospitality.
Try not to guess the plot in “The Swimmer" — LeBlanc + Cudmore’s super-stylish punk whatever video, until you’ve watched it two or three times — the video is more a pastiche than a strictly plot-driven affair. And quite the pastiche it is! Watch as a guy gets baptised, slapped and beaten-up while taking breaks to enjoy the television or watch some kids dancing.
