J Mascis – “Every Morning” Video (Feat. Fred Armisen)

By Tom Breihan / August 27, 2014

You keep thinking Fred Armisen’s schedule is so busy that he’ll have to stop appearing in random indie rock music videos, but no, he never does. Yesterday, Armisen’s buddy J Mascis, the Dinosaur Jr. guitar hero, released a beautifully weary solo album called Tied To A Star. And now Armisen and Mascis are co-starring in director Danny Jelinek‘s video for first single “Every Morning.” The clip tells the story of a mysteriously disappeared ’70s cult. Mascis is cannily cast as a shambling cult leader, and Armisen is the square trying to bring the cult down. I’m pretty sure I saw the Shins’ James Mercer in there as a cult member, too. The video debuted on Funny Or Die this morning, and you can check it out below.

Tied To A Star is out now on Sub Pop.
