We thought that if we followed the instructions on the Directors Bureau website and watched No Age’s videos for “Keechie” and “Eraser” simultaneously, a voice would come through our headphones whispering “Dean is dead” or something like that. It didn't happen, but after watching the "Keechie" video (which is actually unused footage from the "Eraser" shoot) on its own, we felt a little bit uneasy—like we just watched a Larry Clark film or something, but that wasn't it. And it wasn’t even the skeleton face paint or the way that the dry, dusty beige of everything managed to wash out rainbow colored balloons. It must be that we’ve come to expect certain things from No Age, like running and jumping and the musical version of the euphoric moments of perma-sun only found in LA, so when we don't get it, we feel weird. That being said, we're happy to see a new interpretation of No Age's music. Watch the video here.
