Throwback Thursday Video - 'I'm Not Falling Asleep' by Andy Shauf

We have an unusual #TBTV from an extraordinary young Canadian singer-songwriter by the name of Andy Shauf. The video is a relatively new one, from his recent release The Bearer of Bad News. The album, his second full length effort, was released in February on Tender Loving Empire, which is either a Canadian record label or a nascent supergroup.

This song is a #TBTV pick because of its provenance. The video is pieced together from stock footage from the Saskatchewan Agricultural Archives. It serves as the perfect counterweight to the song, which combines the searing introspection of Elliott Smith and the orchestral bent of Patrick Watson.

Want to hear more? Andy will be playing at DC9 on Friday in support of fellow Canadian folksters The Weather Station. Come check him out!
