Tortoise - Prepare Your Coffin from Thrill Jockey Records on Vimeo.


Check out this super-stylish music video for the band Tortoise, starring awesome geometrical San Francisco architecture. How many of these landmarks can you name? We are so bad at this game -- we could only positively identify a few distinctive walls, and although many more looked familiar we just couldn't put our finger on them. It certainly does seem to jump all around the bay area, doesn't it? One shot appears to be the glittering BART wall at SFO, and then next is an underpass in Golden Gate Park; and then there's the Sutro Tower in there somewhere, and the side of the DeYoung, and the nipple church. At least, we're pretty sure that that's what those locations are; they flash by so fast it's hard to tell. The whole thing feels kind of like an opening sequence for a spy thriller set in San Francisco that we would TOTALLY WATCH.
