Shot in Belgrade, Serbia in September 2014.
A lot of videos bill themselves as “short films,” but director Nikola Ležai?’s clip for Steve Gunn’s “Tommy’s Congo” can make a better case than most. Gunn is a meditative guitarist and Kurt Vile sideman who released a gorgeous album called Way Out Weather earlier this fall. (We posted his video for its title track.) “Tommy’s Congo” is a blissful seven-minute zone-out with a little Joy Division ominousness in its bones. And its video tells the story of a Serbian woman who attempts to get closer to a coworker and finds herself in increasingly desperate circumstances. It’s an absolutely absorbing piece of work, and you can watch it above. -- Stereogum
