Mogwai Premiere New "Crossing the Road Material" Music Video

Scottish post-rockers Mogwai have always shown a penchant for fascinating, unorthodox music videos. Their newest, for the song "Crossing the Road Material," is no exception.

The video—directed by Anthony Crook—takes the form of a mini-documentary about a dirt-track racer named Johnny Herchinger. The video follows Herchinger as he prepares for, and then embarks on, a race at the Accord Speedway in Ulster County, NY. You can watch it above.
