"Advanced Falconry" - Mutual Benefit
Shortly before noon this morning, the New York Times’ T Magazine premiered BANGS’ video for Mutual Benefit’s “Advanced Falconry,” the big single off new (and, I suppose, breakout) album Love’s Crushing Diamond.
It is magnificent.
The slow-motion video is also in constant motion, with every cut taking us to an uncomfortable father grimacing, a carefree grandmother flipping her hair, or a child brushing off her face. Faces in constant motion, hands never at ease, the video is the most tranquil success in suspense one is apt to see.
The family photo shoot’s sudden evolution-by-devolution into something much more honest is a subtly profound and heartwarming event. A child eating dirt has never been more beautiful. BANGS’ video syncs up with the song in every way, both in the technical and conceptual motifs.

This is the best music video I’ve seen in a while and plays like a short movie with Chloe Morentz from Kick Ass and was directed by Drew Barrymore.
