Fleet Foxes – Mykonos

I remember how they took you down
As the winter turned the meadow brown.

Fleet Foxes: Mykonos - MPEG-4 clip
For every up there is a down, for every square there is a round, for every high there is a low, for every to there is a from. That’s what makes the world go round.

The music video has been directed and animated by Sean Pecknold and produced at Grandchildren.

    Yeah, this one is phenomenal. Just wondering, did you get the sense that the two triangles were heavily personified? I mean, there was a whole story about their perseverance and by the end, I was looking at them like a character, even though they were clearly just two ordinary shapes. Great example of humanizing and personifying. It does help that I was a big fan of Hello: Grandchildren’s video for “White Winter Hymnal” that you posted here a while ago. Since viewing the last music video, I’ve actually gotten their album.

    Oh yeah, and both of these videos feel very similar to Yeasayer’s “Wait for the Summer” that I found here quite a while ago. I did a little digging, but couldn’t find any talent crossover though. Perhaps the analogue stop motion look is just in style right now.

    Yea. Gotta say that at first I haven’t even noticed the main character (but still found the whole extremely fascinating and enjoyable)

    Gotta love stop motion.
