Jon Porras - black mesa cover

As we announced here, Jon Porras‘ solo album Black Mesa will be available April 17 through Thrill Jockey records.

The eight and a half minute video (filmed by Porras himself) provides a retro, black and white film accompaniment to the drawling post-rock guitar of “Into Midnight.” When the song picks up half-way through, the video begins follows a cloaked man — named the “Desert Spectre” — as he wanders through rolling hills, a worthy visual metaphor for the song’s rise-and-fall delay effects.
