Video: Deerhunter, “Helicopter (Diplo & Lunice RMX)”

Said it before: Diplo and Lunice fucking murdered this remix. They obliterated it beautifully and we’ve listened to it about 33,000 times. It’s on another plane of mega-gorgeous. We die. The images in the KiD-directed video, from Andrey Stvolinsky’s “Slow Moscow,” show how perfect this song is for flying through space and time, to borrow a phrase from one of our loved ones. Also, according to a press release, it “touches obliquely on Bradford Cox’s inclusion of a Dennis Cooper work about a Russian male prostitute in place of “Helicopter” lyrics in the liner notes of Halcyon Digest.” Yo! Whoa. Related: if you’re in NYC, Lunice will be playing the next Nextah, the FADER-sponsored dance party at The Cove in Williamsburg. He is awesome and it is free so you should go.
