A Kaleidoscopic Trip in New The War on Drugs Video

    I'm not saying that you need to be high when you watch the new The War on Drugs video, but I'm also not saying you shouldn't be (particularly when the video reaches its "Beyond the Infinite" conclusion). The Philly psych-rockers released arguably this year's finest album so far with Lost in the Dream (a bit of Tom Petty via Bob Dylan via Dire Straits that is endlessly relistenable), and "Under the Pressure" was that album's epic, nearly 9 minute opus. The band just dropped the track's hypnotic video which seems like a mixture of late 60s/early 70s experimental acid cinema (think the graveyard scene of Easy Rider or Andy Warhol's cinematic ouevre) and old 16 mm home movies. The video crosscuts between the band playing their instruments in a desolate home with kaleidoscopic footage of a small town slowly passing us by. It's the video the song deserves.
