Mercury Rev – “The Dark Is Rising”

It’s a twister! It’s a twister! Crossing the countryside was clearly a dangerous game for intrepid astronomers in centuries past.

Wait a second… are they looking at two moons? Are they on Mars?

“The Dark Is Rising” comes from 2001’s All Is Dream. Nearly a minute was cut from the tune for this video version, but it’s mostly orchestral flourishes that are missing.

Mercury Rev have a new album due out next month: The Light In You; their first since 2008.
