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.
