Video: Shakey Graves - "Unlucky Skin"

Our pal Shakey Graves released his first official music video yesterday. The video was made as part of the Fool's Road project, a traveling music video collaboration that drove around the country to film videos with seven different bands in their home towns, which were planned and shot within only 8 days of having met.

Shakey's is kind of disturbing, in a Whiskey Shivers kind of way. Except he goes all four-armed Predator and kills everyone, not just chicks, in a variety of ways. The video was directed, produced and edited by J.L. Southern.
More on Fool's Road:
"This project started out as an answer to a question: How does one merge all that you’re fond of with all that you do well––to the benefit of others? The answer for me was Fool’s Road: A traveling music video collaboration between one artist-filmmaker and seven musicians across the United States. 80 Days. 7 Musicians. 1 Filmmaker. 10,000 Miles. With the last half of this year, I’ll pack my very square car with a few essentials, a whole lot of gear and head north. For 80 days, I’ll be living on the road, driving 10,000 miles throughout the country to meet these talented musicians wherever they may be. Each will have eight days with me to plan and shoot a music video as reasonably and brilliantly as possible."
