Willis Earl Beal welcomes model/actress Mischa Barton to The Church Of Nobody in the 10-minute short/video for “Coming Through” from his 2013 Nobody Knows LP. Barton plays Beal’s newest convert while Cat Power guests as the arguable object of his affections during this trip into the rising blues man’s psyche. The grainy cult-friendly footage finds Beal leading his group of dedicated followers through a series of exercises that range from your average staff retreat ice-breakers to a questionable sequence of events in the desert. He does all of this while wearing ski goggles. Even if somewhat benign as far as freak fodder goes, the closing shots are not safe for work or anywhere near sexy. The whole scene is especially disturbing in light of the matching sneakers and one-size-fits-all black sweatpants that throw back to Heaven’s Gate. Check the footage below to watch the video for “Coming Through” from Willis Earl Beal. Purchase the Nobody Knows LP via iTunes.
