Mount Kimbie documented suburban suffering in the video for "You Took Your Time," the London duo's team-up with King Krule, and now the post-dubsteppers have turned a somber eye toward the city. The video for "Home Recording," the jazzy opening track off of recent sophomore album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, sidles through the homes of various mopes as they look longingly out their urban windows. Director Anthony Dickenson (the xx, Miike Snow) keeeps the short from feeling claustrophobic, though, thanks to a clever visual trick that melds the dimly lit apartments with vast outdoor settings. High ceilings fade into bare trees, and vice versa. Mount Kimbie half Kai Campos told Rolling Stone the technique creates "a multi-dimensional landscape with no direct reference to a specific place — more a familiar but fictional reality."
