Shearwater - "I Luv The Valley Oh!" video

The great indie-prog falsetto-floggers Shearwater will soon release their all-covers album Fellow Travelers, and we’ve already posted their excellent versions of Xiu Xiu’s “I Luv The Valley Oh!” and Baptist Generals’ “Fucked Up Life.” They’ve now shared the video for their Xiu Xiu cover, and it’s got frontman Jonathan Meiburg playing an astronaut who’s stranded on a mysterious desert planet. Branan Edgens directed the headfuck sci-fi clip, and you can watch it below.
