And while we're on the subject of how videos relate to the song sitting alongside them; The Acorn's video for 'Cumin' from their forthcoming Vieux Loop album is a beguiling oddity, full of seemingly disconnected, oddly coloured images suggesting birth and creation and decay and love and some kind of impermanence. Slightly unsettling whilst also managing to feel joyous. Good trick that. The tune is obviously sublime; hushed, acoustic, gentle and dreamy. Sways through its four and a bit minutes. Rolf Klausener (who IS The Acorn) describes it as a meditation on desire. I'll have that.
