Vulture Premieres Lee Ranaldo’s Video for ‘Angles’


On Between the Times and the Tides, Lee Ranaldo's latest solo album (now available!), the Sonic Youth guitarist necessarily spends most of his time playing said instrument (sometimes with old friends). In his new video for "Angles," which Vulture is premiering below, Ranaldo spends a lot of time swinging guitars, while a pal roams around the streets of New York. Explains Leah Singer, the director (and Ranaldo's wife): "The swinging guitar pays homage to Lee's experimental work and Z Behl, the girl, has been a friend since she was a child. Josh and Brett from Red Bucket Films lend a hand. They worked with our kids on the feature film Daddy Longlegs. So it was a bit of a family affair." Bonus fun fact: Part of the video was filmed by attaching a camera to helium balloons. Check out "Angles" below.
