The Cut Off Vs. Schoolhouse Rock

The cut*off recently posted a video on Facebook that grabbed my attention. They took a new, as of yet unreleased song called "When You're Dead", and then set the music to an old Schoolhouse Rock clip. It's no surprise that the video is highly entertaining. What I don't want to get lost with this really cool clip is how good the actual song is. I would even dare to say it is the cut*off's most ambitious song to date, relying heavily on piano parts as opposed to their more traditional alt-country meets grunge guitar heavy sound. Yes, it's ambitious, and dark by even cut*off standards, but most importantly, the song works. It's eerie, yet in its own way, fun. My curiousity level for the next album is skyrocketing.
