Ducktails guitarist Alex Craig will open as Limited on the band’s European tour.

Earlier this year we shared the excellent EP Empire Parasite MP3s by Limited, the solo project of Ducktails’ Alex Craig. Craig’s work could be jarring and soothing in the space of a single song, especially on opener ‘Times Square Poet’. Now the song has a video to match it by director James Benson.

Benson filmed a single, unbroken shot with an iPhone on a beach in Miami, but despite the low video quality it fits just right with Craig’s clashing tones. Benson captures the voyeuristic eeriness of watching people who don’t realize they’re being watched (let alone filmed), but finds a natural humor in peoples’ movement like the beach goers of Jacques Tati’s gentle, silent comedy M. Hulot’s Holiday.

Watch it below and check out Craig (in both Limited and Ducktails) at the dates below.
