My good friend Andrew Shemin - a poet, comedian and all-around Bob Dylan enthusiast during our days raging at The 505 - is a filmmaker now living in Paris.

Now The Hounds Below are headed to Austin for SXSW, and they're taking along Andrew's video for the band's first single, Cumberland's Crumblin'. The SXSW preview hits the nail on the head in describing The Hounds Below as a cross between Arcade Fire and Roy Orbison.
