New Music Video: The Weeknd

The Weeknd loves a good cinematic romp, as evidenced by previous video treatments for his music. The morning after a hotel party, models doing blow in the desert, and now this-- a nuclear family in danger of going supernova. An unapologetically attractive daughter struts around her creepy father (or step-father, we hope), and he makes creepy perv faces. She's in her underwear on the porch? But it looks like they live in the cold, cold mountains? Her pyromaniac little brother mixes up dead birds with food. Mom just drinks that pinot. The daughter does lots of drugs in the interim (there's a shocker for a Weeknd vid), leading to a hazy dream sequence on a railroad bridge. The mood is fairly sombre, but it matches the French of the song-- "Leave the girls alone / one day, you'll leave / yes, I cried, but today / no, I won't cry." Single tear.



Echoes of Silence is out now, and free for anyone with an internet connection. "Montreal" is cool and all, but you haven't lived until you've heard Abel's rendition of "D.D." His MJ impression is UNCANNY.
