A religious cult led by Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis and featuring The Shins’ James Mercer as a member doesn’t sound too terrible on paper. But when Fred Armisen stumbles upon these fanatics, he’s determined to set them on the straight and narrow. The tale of “The Space Children Of The Forest” and their mysterious disappearance is the basis for Mascis’ new video for “Every Morning”, the latest single off his upcoming LP, Tied to a Star. Watch the Funny or Die product below.
Tied to a Star, the follow-up to 2011’s Several Shades of Why, is out this week via Sub Pop Records.
