VIDEO : Algiers – “And When You Fall”

“The video focuses, albeit abstractly, on the idea of observation and surveillance in our society particularly in our cities via the relentless and invasive accumulation of information… The video takes reference from the step and repeat edits seen in Ernie Gehr’s ‘Serene Velocity,’ abstract streets scenes as observed by Peter Hutton’s ‘New York Portraits’ and the erratic patterns in Len Lye’s film ‘Free Radicals’ while also leaning towards the pace of Cabaret Voltaire’s 80’s video output.”

With Algiers’ current tour continuing at LA’s Roxy this evening, here’s the 4th video from Algiers’ widely acclaimed self-titled debut, the Lamb & Sea directed “And When You Fall”.
