Spiritualized is back with not only this year’s bleakest video, but possibly its best, too. Directed by (the seemingly infallible) AG Rojas, 2012’s whirring Sweet Heart Sweet Light cut “I Am What I Am” soundtracks Rory Culkin (Signs, Scream 4, Macaulay’s little brother) as he stumbles upon one miserable scene after another in what appears to be the West Coast’s response to Winter’s Bone. Don’t get too queasy as the ending’s the ultimate payoff, cementing this as another reason Rojas is a filmmaker to watch for the future. Stream below and then eat a lot of sugar or something right after to keep things level.
