This weeks coveted Video Of The Week isn't the usual acoustic live performance but instead a music video for one of our favourite tracks of the year.

Wintersleeps latest record Welcome To The Night Sky is by far one of the best of 2009 so far (Check out our review of it HERE) and this video for the track Weighty Ghost suits the songs atmosphere down to a tee.

The song itself is a slow burning anthem that entwines uplifting vocalism with a huge sound-scape; allowing the lyrics to float around a giant bubble of sound and whilst that sounds pretty confusing; just listen to the track and you'll see what we're saying.

"I dont need no surgery, take those knives away from me!" The entire band shouts; "just wanna die in my own body, a ghost just needs a home." finishes lead-singer Paul Murphy before diving back into the chanted chorus. 

Couple that with the strange, night-time neighborhood video directed by Sean Wainsteim and you've got a video we were both surprised and excited to find just a few days ago (though we believe it could be from as far back as 2007).

Check it out below and let us know what you thought by commenting at the bottom of the page.

Happy watching.
