An Horse – “Postcards” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

“Postcards” is like the emotional aftermath to Rearrange Beds single “Camp Out” — in that way, it’s almost a minimal cousin to Death Cab For Cutie’s “Photobooth,” a song that finds bitter significance in the remnants of a relationship. The video’s meant to be happier than the song, judging by An Horse’s smiles at the end. The best thing about the anatomical man they create is that they test out his intestinal tract with a little piece of model poop. It must have taken some time to create — you see the band checking medical books and solving Rubik’s Cubes between cutting and painting.

An Horse released remix EP Beds Rearranged last month, about a year after the release of Rearrange Beds. This remix of “Listen,” by Boston’s Bodega Girls, adds a dance beat and some other little changes to the lonely original:
