When we posted Miniature Tigers’s Neon Indian-produced “Gold Skull,” I talked up the dreaminess of the song’s soft layers and high-pitched keyboards. The video’s closer to a nightmare though. In it, a girl who appears to be in some sort of late night Cinemax skin flick (called Ms. Peacock Rides Again), comes out of the TV to mow down Tigers frontman Charlie Brand with her car on the other side of the screen. It’s all done playfully though — I like when he’s trying to outrun the car while holding a stuffed armadillo. Armadillos and cars don’t mix well. The video was directed by Morgan Krantz.
