The Bronx duo of Wednesday Knudsen and Clark Griffin, better known as Pigeons, have had a productive couple of years. They dropped two LPs in 2010 and an out-of-sight full-length called They Sweetheartstammers earlier in 2011 on Soft Abuse. A couple days ago, they put this video directed by Camilla Padgitt-Coles on the web.
Using slowed thermal footage of a dancer at work (I think?) Padgitt-Coles crafts malleable tracers and amorphous blobs into something sweet and shaky. Got a minute? Got six and a half? Got eternity?
"The Welcome" departs from the acerbic percussion norm of They Sweetheartstammers in its gentle up-and-down bounce. But hey if you're going to stretch the mileage of acoustic arpeggios, you may as well put some lovely vox and wobbly sitar on top.
