iamamiwhoami

JWZ recaps iamamiwhoami, an online project combining Gibson-esque 'found footage' and awesome Scanglo-style electronica:

At the beginning of the year, these weird, short, high-production-value videos began appearing on Youtube with no explanation of what they were or who made them, straight out of Pattern Recognition. They featured a heavily distorted woman licking trees and doing other bizarre things in the woods with music that sounded like The Knife or Fever Ray. Cult following ensued. The videos got longer, revealing more of the singer and the songs. ... The best, weirdest thing that the internets have brought us in years

The embed above will take you through it from the beginning. Here's a shortcut to my favorite track for uncivilized savages. You can also buy the music on Amazon and iTunes.
