Take a moment from streaming Clams Casino’s forthcoming debut EP, Rainforest, to enjoy the lush production in a complementary form. Here, the New Jersey producer himself and director Jennifer Tiexiera have collaborated to bring the project’s opening track, “Natural,” to the visual medium. And they have done so by juxtaposing it over scenes from Werner Herzog’s 1972 adventure film, Aguirre, the Wrath of God. We all know that found-footage videos are kind of overdone these days, but as I’ve said before, sometimes they just work exceedingly well. This happens to be one of those times. Herzog’s shots are made that much more breathtaking when paired up with the producer’s equally vibrant music.
