OK, not so new. But Get Lonely is out tomorrow, so get psyched with this quirky and lovely video. From the press release:
If The Sunset Tree (which chronicled the fraught, violent relationship between Darnielle and his stepfather) derived its power and energy from an unblinking exorcism of personal demons, Get Lonely is perhaps the quiet, haunted aftermath. It’s a reflective, intimate record; the mood is one of bittersweet resignation rather than cathartic release.
Mountain Goats’ “Woke Up New” video was directed by Rian Johnson (Brick), and according to some dude on YouTube: “The entire thing was done with only two hidden cuts. Everything else was live and no post-production compositing or something. Straight from Rian Johnson’s mouth.”
