Lost Coastlines ft. Carl Newman (Video)

    In the last two weeks, Okkervil River frontman Will Sheff has bombed the net with different video takes and MP3 downloads of the excellent “Lost Coastlines,” from the band’s upcoming album "The Stand-Ins". This version is the first in a video series that finds friends of the band standing in (hey, I get it) for various band members to do takes of songs from the album.
    In the clip, Carl Newman (he of New Pornographers) stands in for Jonathan Meiburg (he of Shearwater, formerly of Okkervil), and delivers a rousing acoustic performance of the song with Sheff.
    The Stand-Ins is due out on September 9 via Jagjaguwar.
