Mount Kimbie: You Took Your Time on

This video is from Mount Kimbie's latest album, which features a collaboration with UK songwriter, rapper, and singer King Krule. The track casts Krule as the slightly patois-inflected wanderer of the London suburbs, and the video shoots other characters of the suburbs, each with the half-frown of middle-class angst. The whole thing is shot in black-and-white and is able to make even a burning car look like the most-mundane thing in the world. Instead of echoing the wide-screen sonics of the track, the video projects the ennui that such imaginative epics were born from.
