Twin Shadow – At My Heels

Twin Shadow put out one of my favorite records of 2010, and now there’s a bizarre new video for one of the standout tracks from the record, “At My Heels.” In it, Twin Shadow creator/frontman George Lewis, Jr.’s disembodied head floats through an astral representation of the blogosphere, lyrics pop up in Russian, a tiger stalks majestically through the jungle, and through it all, the two directors provide commentary in a funny, tongue-in-cheek parody of the self-serious film school auteur. You’ll have to see it to understand it; even then, I’m not so sure, but it’s worth it to hear the directors refer to Lewis as ‘the Mexican Morrissey’ and ‘the Bangladeshi Bowie.’
