New Fiery Furnaces Video – “Charmaine Champagne”

Following an entertaining video interview with Joe and I’m Going Away’s piano-woven sing-along “The End Is Near,” the Fiery Furnaces have put together an artsy Phillip Niemeyer-directed clip for “Charmaine Champagne.” (Thanks for the tip, Matt.) Eleanor and Matt (not our tipster) show up sans Jason Loewenstein to nod along and shake a leg — and their words direct the flow — but the animated world’s the work of Blueberry Boat book illustrator Mike Reddy with Action Painting interludes via Hannah Cole. Ba, ba, ba, ba, etc.

I’m Going Away is out via Thrill Jockey.
