Video: Wooden Shjips, “Everybody Knows”

Last month, West Coast psych rock institution Wooden Shjips released a strikingly un-scuzzy fourth album, Back to the Land, on Thrill Jockey. Here’s a video for laidback melodic standout “Everybody Knows,” strummed and crooned with the kind of evenness and restraint that makes a really pretty song feel even more melancholic. Visually, director Austin Will concocts a high resolution ode to bewitching, long-haired women and human-horse kinship that feels perfectly suited to the album’s title, not to mention the band’s ongoing fascination with the allure of the American landscape and the Manifest Destiny it implies.
