Following the release of m b v earlier this month, Kevin Shields lends his eerie guitar work to Primal Scream’s “2013,” a cut from their upcoming album, More Love. Via Spin:
The new “2013” video hones in on a 4:09 chunk of a nine-plus minute More Love track, and it’s, well, a lot to digest. Gillespie snarls weedily about a “21st-century slaves, a peasant underclass” over feedback-strewn Big Pink-meets-Black Rebel Motorcycle Club rock chug. And the unkillable indie-sax trend pops up again here, this time with an actually refreshing Spanish-bullfighter feel. The video shows a couple in Kanye West-style masks embracing, a moth being stabbed, aristocrats being bathed and force fed, a body being bound up in ropes — you know, America’s traditional President Day’s imagery.
