Throwing Muses – “Clark’s Nutcracker” Video

By Miles Bowe / April 2, 2014

Throwing Muses returned last year with the enormous 32-track album/art book, Purgatory/Paradise, in classic form on tracks like “sleepwalking-1” and “Sunray Venus.” Now they have a video for the track “Clark’s Nutcracker,” with animation by Jonathan Pound, which tells the abstract story of a man following a glowing ball of light. The animation moves with a surreal fluidity that grows more fascinating as the story eventually reaches its colorful climax. Watch it below.

Purgatory/Paradise is out now on the HarperCollins imprint It Books.
