Claymation + Fleet Foxes = Feast for the Senses

You know what I really enjoy? Claymation. Even better? Claymation paired with a delightful song from one of the bands getting a lot of play time on my MP3 player right now: Fleet Foxes.

If you haven't checked out their new album yet, I'd urge you to do so — it's so fantastic. Now one of my favorite tracks, "White Winter Hymnal," has a lovely animated video to accompany it and like Andrew Bird's video for "Lull" early this summer, it's the perfect match up of interesting animation with an appropriate song to make a totally great music video. Or, if psychedelic folk music could be made out of clay, it would look like this.
