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.
