On first listen to “Winter Hill“‘s chilly repetitions, I thought of Steve Reich, not an extreme cyclist, but the Kingdom Of Rust track does start quickly — like you’re catching it in media res — so the David Mould-directed out-of-the-gates bicycling action makes sense. The concept? Some sort of anti-Pied Piper, charismatic outsider thing. It’s an aesthetically appealing clip, shot roughly and lo-fi with heavy shadows, obscured framing, and security cams. (Please note: The stunt cyclist’s Danny MacAskill, not Lou Barlow.)
