But the clip does feature the SMU grad born Andy Bothwell debuting to Dallas audiences his song "Contrails," which features guest vocals from Tegan Quin of Tegan and Sara and some guest keys work from Nervous Curtains' Sean Kirkpatrick. To watch the actual, Vancouver-shot music video for the song, you'll have to head on over to Paste's web site, which we recommend you do since, well, like much of Astronautalis' new album, the John Congleton-produced This Is Our Science, the video is pretty awesome.

My Brightest Diamond -- "Be Brave"
Memphis May Fire -- "The Sinner"
The O's -- "In Numbers We Survive"
