The new Marsha Balaeva (“Teary Eyes and Bloody Lips” / “Faraway Lightning”) directed video for Moonface’s “Headed For the Door” is quite a beauty. Shot in black and white, it is a combination of seascapes, books and perfect illustrations. Under The Radar premiered the video yesterday, along with details on how to receive the last Moonface letter in a series of three**. It includes sending your snail mail address to moonface@jagjaguwar.com. Those who do submit for the letter will be entered to win a copy of With Siinai: Heartbreaking Bravery, either on a CD or vinyl record. More details at Under The Radar. Watch “Headed For the Door” above.

**Fans who pre-ordered Heartbreaking Bravery received a hand-typed copy of the letter that’s read aloud in the song and then several weeks later, those same fans received a typed response to that letter. One letter is left.
