"Discoverer" video - Hansa Studios
Another one from the CIN trailer, and in the same venue as Oh My Heart, R.E.M. has just released a video for Discoverer, track one from the new record. Rolling Stone Magazine calls it "seemingly live", which to my ears sounds a little harsh. That fact that Michael's vocals have minor differences in them is obvious to me, but the website doesn't seem to agree.
On some unrelated notes, the box with the band's name on it (behind Michael) makes its first appearance since the working rehearsals in 2007. I'm probably wrong on this second point, but the carpets in that studio look awfully familiar... are they the same ones used by System of a Down?
Er... maybe not. But hey, it's Discoverer and it rocks!
