Wolf Parade put out an ode to the soviet era cosmonauts as the video for their song "Yulia." Director and writer Scott Coffey gives us some clues to the video's vision:
"During the Cold War at the beginning of the Space Age, the Soviet Union was rumored to have two space programs one a public program, the other a secret 'black one, in which dangerous and sometimes downright suicidal missions were attempted. Cosmonauts would be shot into orbit without the means or resources to get them home, stranded in an expanding orbit around earth, slowly pulling away, frozen in space for eternity.."
Depressing stuff, but the video is great. Check it out below.-brendan mehan
