If what you’re looking for in your Thursday evening is a multi-movement prog-psych odyssey – and accompanying visuals that are equally as fascinating – and you’ve got nine minutes to take in said multi-movement prog-psych odyssey, then do we have a treat for you; in the form of the new video for Austin, TX-based Nolan Potter‘s ‘Music is Dead’.

The title track and closer of his new record, released a few weeks ago by Castle Face Records – run by John Dwyer of Osees/Thee Oh Sees/OCS etc. – was brought to life in stop-motion animated form by ‘an exceptionally sleep deprived Taylor Browne’, who says of the clip that it ‘was created entirely by hand using illuminated manuscripts from the British Museum and vintage magazines found at Half Price Books’, and crucially that ‘no members of Nolan Potter’s Nightmare Band were harmed in the making of this video.

We’re premiering it below, and you may indulge in Music is Dead over at Bandcamp.
