The music video for “Frontier Psychiatrist” by Australian electronic music group The Avalanches is a surreal and chaotic visual feast that incorporates a wide range of vintage film and television footage. The video begins with an old-fashioned instructional video on how to conduct a psychiatric evaluation before quickly devolving into a frenzied montage of disparate clips that match the song’s frantic energy and eclectic sampling. The visuals include everything from clips of old westerns and horror movies to snippets of musical performances and bizarre commercials. The overall effect is disorienting and psychedelic, perfectly complementing the song’s unconventional structure and off-kilter lyrics.
