The New Pornographers' latest album, Challengers, really is the gift that keeps on giving. More than a year after the album hit stores, the supergroup has just released a video for "Mutiny, I Promise You," a bouncy Challengers track that gets the full-out fantasy treatment here.
This video envisions a world full of murderous bears, creative but possibly vengeful unicorns, cardboard harps, and one twisted caper involving some special guests (including Kristen Schaal, whom you might recognize as Mel from Flight of the Conchords). The Pornographers cram together in a cardboard box to play their tune and later celebrate with the various costumed animals to whom "mutiny" has been delivered. Quirky? To say the least. But I like that this group always seems to be having a good time, so to watch them rock out on their cardboard keyboards and guitars, just read more.
