The Mountain Goats “Sax Rohmer #1” Music Video.

So I was watching New York Noise on Saturday night, and low and behold the video for “Sax Rohmer #1” came on. To be honest I haven’t really paid attention to the videos for the Mountain Goats singles before this (and I didn’t even know that this song had one), but damn is it good. I was totally impressed with how the video was put together…placing the emphasis not on some dramatic theatrical preformance of actors in the video, but literally on the lyrics. For me John Darnielle is all about the lyrics (the music is great, but his words move me). I think this video captures the band extremely well, and it is my favorite music video since Scout Niblett’s “Kiss” featuring Bonnie “Prince” Billy.

Enjoy.
