Mogwai: "The Lord is Out of Control" (Video)

The Vocoder will be the new Auto Tune and it will be blessed by retro charm, which will make it hipster-appropriate, indie-credible and fully supported by PBR-scented neck beards everywhere. 

Ah, I'm just talking shit.

The typically awesome Mogwai released a new video for the single, "The Lord is Out of Control."  Expect to hear this within the confines of the band's upcoming new album, Rave Tapes, which will be out in late January via Sub Pop.  In addition to your normal formats (i.e. LP, CD, MP3, SUV, STD...etc. ), there's a special edition box set of Rave Tapes being released that's limited to 500 copies.  They're up for pre-order, so you may want to get yours now before some enterprising yung'un with daddy's credit card picks up a copy and tries to pimp it online for your firstborn or a handjob. 

Here's the video:

Now, look at the info, which was handed to me via email by the good people at Sub Pop.
