The very, very good Sweet Heart Sweet Light, the most recent Spritualized album, is more than a year old now. And it’s also been more than a year since the band teamed up with the great video director AG Rojas for the intense, visceral “Hey Jane” video. But Spiritualized have once again enlisted the services of Mr. Rojas, this time to make a video for the clanging space-vamp “I Am What I Am.” This time around, Rory Culkin (Macaulay’s youngest brother) plays a burnout kid in a burnt-out desert town, looking for escape anywhere he can find it. The video is lightly NSFW, and it’s got a couple of scenes that rank among the most disturbing things you will likely see this Monday morning, but it’s still a great video. Watch it below.
