Film At 11: Belle & Sebastian

If you’ve ever wondered what Scotland looks like, you’re in for a real treat today.

Check it out below. And now for the really good news: Matador will release a new B&S EP a month titled How To Solve Our Human Problems for three months starting in December. And you might be seeing a whole lot more of Stuart and the gang in MAGNET Land in the not-so-distant future.

Film At 11: Torres

It’s not often we get a video that leaves us shocked and mum, but Torres (a.k.a. Mackenzie Scott) manages to do so with her new clip for the title track off Three Futures (4AD). Directed by Ashley Cooper, the video is a potent, ambiguous tale that’ll make you feel a little nutty in the head. It’s definitely a weird one. Watch it below.

Film At 11: Destroyer

Destroyer recently announced forthcoming album ken (Merge), and now Dan Bejar and Co. have shared a video for “Tinseltown Swimming In Blood.” The five-minute black-and-white clip is an adaptation of a 1962 French science-fiction featurette. Director KC says of the video, “I had no idea what the song even sounded like, but the only idea I had was to remake Chris Marker’s La Jetée as faithfully as possible. It’s not just an homage to the great cine-poet; it’s also about the medium of film, about still photography. It would have been a billion times easier and less stressful to shoot it digitally, but it was worth it.” Watch “Tinseltown Swimming In Blood” below.
