Watch This Now: The Uncluded – “Delicate Cycle”

“Wrap it in a blanket, like you would a severed horse head…”

Way to keep up productivity, dudes! It’s not raining with The Uncluded – it’s pouring! Not long after announcing the title, artwork and tracklist for Hokey Fright, the debut collaborative LP from Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson; the duo have released not one, not two, but three videos. We previously saw the oddly playful Earthquake here on Y,WGAV!, and I recommend checking out the Scissorhands clip for its immaculate nail artwork depicting both Aesop and Kimya. However, this is not only the best clip of the three, it’s one of the best videos either artist have ever put their names to.

Delicate Cycle is, for all intents and purposes, a celebration of the freaks. The weirdos. The people and things that don’t quite fit in anywhere. The square pegs in round holes. There are disabled dogs, filthy hippys, prosthetic limbs, introverted and imaginative children – and, of course, our heroes in Aesop and Kimya. The video takes a handful of subplots and brings them all together to rejoice in a world of batshit weirdness. Each story ends on a high note, culminating in warmth and empowerment. After awhile, it becomes clear: It’s not just two people who are the Uncluded. It can’t be. We all are, in our own way. Unclude yourself today.
