Spoon – “I Ain’t The One” Video

Spoon recently released the album Hot Thoughts, which, like every other Spoon album, is very good. And now they’re back with a new music video for “I Ain’t The One” directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, aka the filmmaking team behind the great Nick Cave pseudo-documentary 20,000 Days On Earth. They match the song’s minimal, bluesy organ riff with minimal, bluesy visuals, elevating a simple yet intimate performance video into something aesthetically compelling. Watch below.
