Tortoise eyeing Prepare Your Coffin

Directed by Andrew Paynter and JUICE from the album, Beacons of Ancestorship.

Tortoise's music is almost entirely instrumental, being one of the first bands to incorporate jazz styles in indie rock versus rock and roll elements. Their third album TNT is a great example of their jazz influenced rock. Beacons of Ancenstorship is their first album in five years.

Minimalism at its maximum, no lyrics and no color are present in Paynter's video. The interesting shapes and shadows shine when viewed in the HD version. Would really like to know the location for the shoot...
