Today, the bright and joyous art-rockers Deerhoof release their new album The Magic, and they’ve also dropped a confounding claymation video for the album track “The Devil And His Anarchic Surrealist Retinue.” Joe Baughman put together the video, and it shows a demon cow escaping the underworld, a bunch of chess pieces having a psychedelic party, and I’m not really sure what all else. It’s pretty surreal. But the sheer work it must’ve taken is staggering, and the images are all completely arresting even if you can’t figure out what’s happening. Watch it below.
The Magic is out now on Polyvinyl.
