Celluloid Bachelor #29: Foreign Born "Early Warnings"

Foreign Born's 2009 album Person to Person is one of many that I didn't spend as much time with as I should have this year, and the new video from one of its tracks ("Early Warnings") is really making me regret it. There are so many things I love about this video, apart from the brilliant song it complements, including the vintage-looking and too-fast film clips, the fact that the airplane and speedboat match, the wild names for the creatures they "discover," and the fact that the dog accompanies the three brave explorers everywhere. All in all, it is a music video a somewhat more grown up Wes Anderson could make. It gets a hearty CB endorsement, as does the show the band will be playing at the Beachland on March 8th. But more on that later.
