In the first installment of our Favorite-Band-Ever-for-Now series, please welcome M. Ward. The first video from his 'Post-War' album is for the song 'Chinese Translation,' and it's creepy good. Director Eric David Johnson dreams up an animated Chinese fella that turns into a ghost and inhabits a tree -- you don't see that every day. Jim James (My Morning Jacket) lends his vocal talents on the track. The first half of the record is dumb good (the rest is normal good).
