Chicago quartet Implodes released their second album, Recurring Dream, through Kranky this week, and we've got a first look at their new video for album cut 'Scattered in the Wind'.

The track's a slow-burning, solidly-bolstered piece of post-rock, nesting its murmured vocals in vast swathes of resonating sound waves, before the band reveal themselves to be cosmos-bound, with an ace kaleidoscopic guitar solo to close.

The video, on the other hand, is pure murk, with half-discerned shapes - dead flies? Blades of grass? - passing in front of the camera. While the label's description of the new album points up the LP's primeval sounds, Kranky's notes for the band's previous album, Black Earth from 2011, feel applicable for this track: "Black Earth is a haunted and magical place. There's an old barn there with many rooms and a silo that's filled with dead insects. Outside there's a big wood pile filled with spider webs that probably has black widows living in it. There are mysterious plants growing everywhere."
