The follow video surfaced the other day for Blue Water White Death‘s song “Grunt Tube’ from their forthcoming album. If you don’t remember, Blue Water White Death is Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu and Jonathan Meiburg of Shearwater’s collaboration. Check out the stark video below. It looks and sounds a lot like a Xiu Xiu video, with Stewart singing/speaking over piano chords and reverb.

Their self-titled album is out October 12th on Graveface Records.

It seems like all I’ve been reporting lately are new albums! There is a TON of stuff coming out next year that I am so excited for! There isn’t much else new stuff coming out right now, but I will be putting up my favorite songs from 2009 and then my favorite albums, so be on the look-out.
