Grizzly Bear’s Amazon-approved Veckatimst has birthed another aesthetically appealing video. (At the beginning of September it was Sean Pecknold’s fencing vignettes for “While You Wait For The Others,” but the one folks will likely remember most featured exploding choir boy faces.) Here, artist Allison Schulnik creates a smeary rainbow-dripped Claymation landscape for Late Night favorite “Ready, Able.” It takes me all the way back to “Knife” for its surreal mix of sadness, repulsion, and a kind of otherworldly beauty.
In case you were wondering, I’ll only write about New Moon bands today.
Veckatimest is out via Warp.
