Video: Modeselektor "Shipwreck (feat. Thom Yorke)"

Last month, Berlin duo Modeselektor released Monkeytown, its third LP and just one of many things the pair discussed in its lengthy recent conversation with fellow electronic-music veteran Martyn. Now, the guys have unveiled the album's first video. "Shipwreck" is also the first single from Monkeytown, and features the vocal contributions of Radiohead frontman and long-time collaborator Thom Yorke. Directed by Tony "Truand" Datis, the clip depicts a little boy and his attempt to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. It's kind of like a well-soundtracked version of The Road or The Walking Dead, although we can't tell if the other people in the video are supposed to be cannibals or zombies or just plain-old humans. There's also a big dog in the mix. The "Shipwreck" single will be released on November 4; the artwork and tracklist is below.
