VIDEO : Lee Ranaldo – “Angles”


If you’ve yet to check out Lee Ranaldo’s ‘Between The Times & The Tides’, you’re running the considerable risk of missing the boat on one of 2012’s most thrilling rock albums. I mean, we’d usually encourage you to take risks in your personal life, but that’s why there are pursuits such as autoerotic asphyxiation hang-gliding.

“Angles” is the second video from “Between The Times & The Tides” ; it premiered earlier today via New York Magazine, and here’s some notes from director (and longtime collaborator) Leah Singer.

This song felt very ‘New York’ to me. Time moves at a different pace here, fast and slow all at once.  In the video you see a girl running aimlessly yet urgently through the streets. The song implies that relationships move at their own pace too, watching time pass but always meeting back up, coming full circle with someone.  The swinging guitar pays homage to Lee’s experimental work and Z Behl, the girl, has been a friend since she was a child.  Josh and Brett from Red Bucket Films lend a hand. They worked with our kids on the feature film  ‘Daddy Longlegs’.  So it was a bit of a family affair.
