Rare video footage of Arthur Russell has surfaced on YouTube, including a water-logged Walter Gibbons video for “Let’s Go Swimming (Coastal Dub)” and a couple long takes by fellow experimental musician Phil Niblock. The clips were posted by the keepers of Russell’s massive archive, Audika Records, who have been busy reissuing his classic records on vinyl (including World of Echo, Love Is Overtaking Me and Calling Out of Context) and readying a brand new album of previously unreleased recordings.

Among the spoils are alternate versions of “Lucky Cloud,” “Keeping Up,” “See My Brother, He’s Jumping Out (Let’s Go Swimming #2),” “This Is How We Walk on the Moon,” and “Hiding Your Present From You,” as well as four new tracks: “Corn,” “Corn (Continued),” “They and Their Friends,” and the abstract instrumental “Ocean Movie,” which can be streamed alongside Audika’s recent video uploads below…
