Eivind Opsvik: Overseas IVEivind Opsvik: Overseas IV (Loyal Label, 4/17/12)

Eivind Opsvik, a Brooklyn-by-way-of-Norway crossover jazz musician, returned last week with his band Overseas for the latest installment in the Overseas series, Overseas IV, the fourth in nearly a decade-long span.

This video, directed by experimental filmmaker Iris Piers, is for the album’s closing track, “Youth Hopeth All Things, Believeth All Things,” a down-tempo and dirty jazz-rock piece incorporating rock-’n’-roll guitars and a despairing organ.
