Cross Record – Basket

Take a disturbing plunge into the unknown with Emily Cross

Full of disembodied voices that rise and are quickly silenced, heaving chords, the eerily whispering voice of Emily Cross herself, Cross Record’s Basket truly has a video that echoes its shimmering, majestic bleakness.

Set in the Dripping Springs landscape that Cross calls home, it trails the artist as she follows an unheard calling into a lunar landscape of stalagmites, dripping rocks and bubbling tar. Shot entirely in grainy black and white, Andrew McGlennon’s directing, filming and editing captures the jarring, murky quality of Emily Cross’ spooky post-rock.

Basket will appear on Wabi-Sabi, out 29 January via Ba Da Bing Records.
