The album of the year — Scott Walker’s The Drift — now has an amazing, sepulchral music video to go along with it. It’s late, I’m tired, so I’m just going to quote from Pitchfork:

Animator/Tomato-associate Graham Wood has assembled an appropriately eerie, nightmarish mindfuck of a video for Scott Walker’s “Jesse”, from this year’s Best New Music’d The Drift. The piece, which recalls both Stanley Donwood’s work with Radiohead circa OK Computer and the storied 4AD aesthetic, features familiar symbols and pictograms (smiley face, generic man and woman, cross) a-Drift in a kaleidoscope of dissolving lines, patterns, and textures. Might not sound so unsettling on paper, but trust me here– this shit haunts.
