New Bright Eyes Video – “Four Winds”

Bright Eyes enlisted the directorial savvy of Patrick Daughters (who has helmed vids for The Shins, YYYs, Kings Of Leon, Death Cab) for the first from Cassadaga. The clip’s protagonist and his band (including a harmonizing Maria Taylor on drums) antagonize a country fair type crowd with the sorta music that really oughta make the audience square dance or whatever. Instead, the punters begin chucking trash at poor Oberst. Either it’s symbolic of how he’ll just never be accepted by traditionalists like he should be, or the extras weren’t feeling the long hair.
