The official video for Canadian Owen Pallett's (aka Final Fantasy) gossamer-gutwrench "Lewis Takes Off His Shirt" from the new Heartland is a Ryan Trecartin-esque romp with witchy hats, hockey masks, Balloon Boy, Orange Crush, jumbly geometrical soap sculpture, and self-stabbing.

But this live vid of the song, from a downpour at the Hillside Festival in Guelph, Ontario last June, shows that the effervescent one-man band needs no electro-conceptual props to get the joy across. (He'll be here May 5 at the Independent -- indoors, alas.)
