and Chris Milk put together an awesome, affecting, interactive video for "We Used To Wait," where the viewer was transported back to their childhood home address for a bit of well-utilized nostalgia and it was pretty incredible
. It's a tough act to follow. Now for "Sprawl II," they've got two experiences to offer. The traditional video features singer Regine Chassagne dancing around a faceless creepytown, eventually meeting up with the rest of the band on a football field for a faceless seizure dance-off. Right.
The other is the same video, but rigged to detect movement with a computer camera (or mouse clicks), allowing the viewer to control the dance movements of the characters in the video. It's kind of neat! Check that out over here
The DDR-control freak style interactivity doesn't exactly elicit the same deeply personal emotional response as Milk's brilliant experiment, but it does act as an efficient time waster.
If you haven't heard, or don't (from time to time) obsess over The Suburbs
again, you're doing yourself a disservice.
