video: Bowerbirds "Dark Horse"

"Keep this wood stove burning"

Another exemplary video from La Blogotheque. This one finds Vincent Moon and Co. driving through the streets of NYC's Lower East Side, while the Bowerbirds bless the crew with a breathtaking version of "Dark Horse," one of the standout cuts from last years Hymns for a Dark Horse. We saw the band perform on those same dirty streets a few months back and couldn't have left feeling any better about life. Hymns... will be re-released later this year (6/19/08) on compact disc and vinyl by the fine folks at Dead Oceans. If you don't own a turntable, you may want to purchase one before Hymns for a Dark Horse hits stores, as vinyl is really the only way to truly experience a recording as sacred and pristine as Hymns for a Dark Horse.
