I get it. You probably weren’t planning on watching a video called “The Irish Wars of Independence” . With lyrics like: “When I was a child, I met the devil in Ireland. Did I ever tell you that, my love? It may just explain my transitory ways, when my mood is far off. My love has been diluted by the inadequacies of man.” But guess what: you are in control of your own transitory ways and it would behoove you (yes, behoove you) to watch this charming video of James puttering around the house, putting on masks and whatnot, while listening to his utterly beautiful song.
Filmed and edited by James Yorkston.
From “The Route to the Harmonium”, out now on Domino Records.
