Exclusive Premiere: Deleted Scenes “A Bunch Of People Who Love You Like Crazy”

Posted by on

Some people call Deleted Scenes art rock, but that doesn’t seem to cover it. The band makes dense compositions that zig and zag and do their darndest not to be pinned down by genre or stylistic restraints. They build experimental soundscapes and then mix it up with dense percussion and catchy pop hooks that leave listeners guessing what’s going to happen next. It’s an exhilarating ride and it’s easy to see why The Washington Post said, “If Deleted Scenes isn’t the best rock band in Washington, it’s certainly on the very short list.”

The video we are premiering today is for their single, “A Bunch Of People who Love You Like Crazy.” Directed by Ben Usie the video is a “Inception” inspired mind trip. Usie describes the video as such:

The video spans at least three levels of consciousness (a la “Inception”). The man (tier 1) dives into his own psyche to see what appears to be a wonderful encounter with a beautiful woman (tier 2). They are spinning through space and time, as the greater universe spins around them. As time goes on, the tier 2 man and woman suffer from visions of evil in their own heads (tier 3). Not only does the audience get to see how the tier 2 man and woman react to these visions, we also get to see the tier 1 man’s reactions to seeing all of this unfold in his head. These thoughts and emotions are not always logical or linear. While the man and woman in the vision show fear and lack of control, the man watching them beams with voyeuristic excitement. Only after the vision is finished does the tier 1 man show disapproval.

It’s a lot of weighty ideas for a music video to live up to, but if any band’s music can carry the burden of such an inspired tale, it’s Deleted Scenes.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
