the water's all around

    The Low Anthem's remarkable sophomore album, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin (Nonesuch) was recorded on Block Island, off the coast of their native Rhode Island, and their beautiful new video for that record's title track appears at first to be a visual ode to that fact. But there's a larger story surrounding the solitary, puppet man at the center of this tale. Paired with Ben Knox Miller's proclamation of, "Oh my God, the water's all around us", the video offers one explanation for how this came to be. Here, our man digs down deep in the dirt, removing a human skull, and springing a leak that eventually floods everything in sight. "Oh my God, it's all around". - David Pitz
