“The Down Moveables” (Video) (Prefix Premiere)

    Although you may not know the name The Hand To Man Band yet, chances are you know of its members. The group features Mike Watt (fIREHOSE), John D (Deerhoof), Tim Barnes (Silver Jews) and master solo pianist Thollem McDonas, and though the guys have been making music together since 2010, they recently released their debut album, You Are Always On Our Minds, via Post-Consumer.

    The album’s first single, “The Down Moveables,” is a pleasantly disjointed avant-garde pop track, and its visual accompaniment will make you as squeamish as the music itself. Splicing bizarre found footage with original animation, director Marcos Sanchez creates a video that is both aesthetically pleasing and somewhat uncomfortable.
