New Torche Video – “Healer”

Meanderthal made its way onto my and our and various other folks’ 2008 best-of lists, and it continues rolling well into 2009. Torche’s David Kleiler-directed video for “Across The Shields” was pretty goofy. When we posted it, we mentioned that it was shot last August, while they were on tour with Boris, which is why ex-guitarist Juan Montoya makes an appearance. We also mentioned it was the first of two videos shot on the same day. Juan shows up in Kleiler’s “Healer” clip, too, so we’re deducing this was that aforementioned video number two. This time the guys went with a fairly straight-up performance, which makes much better sense: You don’t need to get fancy when you write songs like this. Now get ready for a bunch of orgasm faces.

For your ears only:
