ARTISTdirect.com has teamed up with alt/folk/world duo Round Mountain to premiere their new music video for the single "Coffee," out now and available at iTunes.
Their new album The Goat lands July 2.
"We've been told that one of the first beings to discover coffee was the goat," the band told us about the song. "So from our forthcoming new album The Goat, here's a video for all of the baristas of the world who have ever started their day like this, as well as anyone who has ever needed the spirit of coffee to guide them to a place with a view."
So the goat discovered coffee? Ya hear that, Starbucks?
The video, directed and produced by Paola and Greg Martini from AT7000, was shot on 16mm film giving it a '60s TV vibe.
"Coffee" is a perfect sampling of Round Mountain's sound, which in one song can jump fully into West African, Balkan brass, samba, Haitian, or Turkish sounds in a fully fleshed out way. The Goat features many guest musicians including Anais Mitchell, Moira Smiley and folk legend Andy Irvine.
Did you take a great big sip of "Coffee?"
