Stealing Sheep

Stealing Sheep have shared the video for "Apparition," the latest single from this year's fantastic Not Real. The video was made by one of the best in the biz, Dougal Wilson, whose CV includes LCD Soundsystem's "Tribulations" and Jarvis Cocker's "Don't Let Him Waste Your Time." For "Apparition," he constructs a seemingly one-shot stunner centered around the very British folk tradition of Morris dancing. You don't really see videos this technically complex and cool like this anymore (not since the heyday of Michel Gondry) and it's one that bears rewatching. Check it out below.

The band will be here next week for CMJ and have added a few more shows while here, including BrooklynVegan's free day party on Saturday (10/17) at Baby's All Right. Here's Stealing Sheep's full CMJ schedule:
