Okkervil River frontman Will Sheff recently announced a new synthy solo side project called Lovestreams, and he’s planning on posting his songs online one at a time rather than gathering them into an album-sized bundle. After debut single “Shock Corridor,” the second Lovestreams song we’ve heard is the slow-building “There’s Video,” which comes drenched in both sex and sax. Cleverly, Sheff has chosen to debut it in the form of a video. Sheff’s actor/director friend Scott Coffey has filmed Sheff trudging around New York, using an old digital video camera and its in-camera effects to make the city look like the seedy, broken metropolis it once was. Watch it, and download the song, below.
Sheff is posting all his Lovestreams stuff here, so that’s the Tumblr to follow if you’re interested.
