Cults’ Go Outside video

I can’t think of a more aptly-named band than Cults to offer a music video featuring Jim Jones and his exercise in mind control, the Peoples’ Temple. This haunting video
was directed by Isaiah Seret who has been responsible for a number of compelling music videos from the the likes of Gogol Bordello and Edward Sharpe. Your Music Today features a great quote from Isaiah on the use of archival Peoples’ Temple footage and the director’s desire to humanize the Temple’s followers through the medium of the video. I must say that the results are somewhat unsettling, but thought-provoking nonetheless.
