Yeasayer’s Ambling Alp by Radical Friend

Firstly, in the vein of their video for Black Moth Super Rainbow's Dark Bubbles came the interactive trailer to Kirby and Julia aka Radical Friend's new video for psychedelic disco-pop weirdies Yeasayer.

Firstly, in the vein of their video for Black Moth Super Rainbow's <a href="http://www.promonews.tv/2009/05/19/black-moth-super-rainbow%E2%80%99s-dark-bubbles-by-radical-friend/">Dark Bubbles</a> came the interactive trailer to Kirby and Julia aka Radical Friend's new video for psychedelic disco-pop weirdies Yeasayer. Move your mouse and you activate a 360º camera to explore selected scenes - and mouse-investigation is encouraged by the fact that all the boys and girls are butt-naked (in an early Seventies rock album cover kind of way). Which still doesn't quite prepare you for the full gorgeous oddness of the video itself: a hooded glass-faced horseman and drummer in the desert; bandmembers emerging from primordial ooze with detachable faces; more hooded glass-faced men boxing; and, of course, the nudists heading for that shimmering pod in the desert. Amazing location (which Dan Kreeger at One Small Step describes intriguingly as a "top secret volcano" on private land outside LA), beautifully shot (by Kevin Phillips), and brilliantly wacky.
