This morning indie rock band Deleted Scenes premiered a new music video for “Landfall”, a more contemplative track from their melancholy masterpiece Lithium Burn. The AV Club got the honor of premiering the dark narrative video, and they proceeded to spoil the whole thing in their short post (which I won’t link to here). This is the most egregious example of a trend that’s been really pissing me off lately with music video posts, namely explaining the whole thing before the viewer even sees it. It’s not so bad when it’s just a silly video of an out-of-control dinner party with Ian Svenonious, but in this case director Ben Usie of Pree and DP Nigel Lyons crafted an excellent short film that deserves an unspoiled first view by everyone. Shame on you AV Club.
