Avant-folk group Old Smokey released a stunning sleeper of a record, Wester Easter, in April via Cloud. (Read our feature on the band here.) Now, we're happy to premiere the music video for "Vacant Lot," a taut and textural tune from the album.
Says frontman Jim Willingham of the clip, directed by former Flagpole scribe John Britt:
We shot it up in a quarry somewhere between Carlton and Elberton about 45 minutes north of Athens. We also used a location of an amazing vintage/antique/junk market run by our friend in Carlton. Most of the latter half of the video takes place in the owner Jimmy's fantastical sculpture garden.
Old Smokey plays Normaltown Hall on Thursday, Sept. 4.
