Music Video Vendredi – Mother Mother’s “The Sticks”

Screen Shot 2012-11-23 at 11.40.45 AM

Happy Friday Music Lovers!

I had very solid intentions of posting this last week as these guys were playing the Corona on Wednesday, but instead I’ll post it in homage to the show I was too sick to attend. (Sad days.) MM released this video on the 13th of this month, keeping the momentum going of their Sticks tour, which from what I can tell has sold out every venue. Does anyone else remember seeing them on small music festival side stages 6 years ago? Oh how far they’ve come! What I love about them most is their evolution of sound – each record is different, more mature, more refined and maybe a little darker. But always interesting and catchy.

This video is awesome. It’s a little on the creepy side, but awesome. Animated, directed and produced by Chad VanGaalen (musically accomplished in his own right)  – I was sincerely not aware how cool his animations were. There’s a ton of symbolism oozing from this video – I won’t tell you what I think – but I do suggest you check it out. Injecting a little more awesome into your day never hurts! And in case you want to check out more of VanGaalen’s work, here’s the link to his YouTube page!
