Michael Feuerstack "Scorekeeper" (video)
Published Sep 02, 2014He may have ditched the Snailhouse moniker and branched out with this year's collaborative Singer Songer, but a busy schedule hasn't stopped Michael Feuerstack from delivering new material. This time, it's in the form of a video for "Scorekeeper."
The clip is set in a Montreal gymnasium and features the singer-songwriter as a wall-ball player whose glory days are behind him. Settling for life as a referee, Feuerstack's character reflects the "comical, sad and a little bit surreal" theme of the song itself, according to a press release.
The track closes out Feuerstack's 2013 record Tambourine Death Bed, but gets some new life with the just-released visuals. And despite the rousing air sax solo scene in the video, the beautifully sad brass sounds actually come to us courtesy of Colin Stetson.
Feuerstack heads out on another string of Canadian tour dates tomorrow (September 4) and you can see the full list of shows here. For now, though, check out the video for "Scorekeeper" below.
