Celluloid Bachelor #22: Yeasayer "Ambling Alp"

Yeasayer's All Hour Cymbals is one of, I think, the best albums of this decade. I won't tell you why - do yourself a favor and get a copy and listen to it, over and over, for a few weeks. And do it before their new album, Odd Blood, comes out in February 2010.

The video for today is the first single off that forthcoming album, "Ambling Alp." The sounds are a little less sprawling and global and a bit more peppy, but the visual weirdness is a direct extension from All Hour Cymbals. The film that accompanies the song is wild, but delightfully so.
