The Acorn for their song “Crooked Legs.” This continuation of the animated video for “The Flood Pt.1,” off debut album, Glory Hope Mountain (Paper Bag Records), marks the return of director Christopher Mills (Broken Social Scene, Interpol, Modest Mouse).
“‘A high-concept album gets a high-concept video,’ …as Mills’ impressive vision shifts from outer space to the path of a firefly– “I’m guided by fireflies,” head Acorn member Rolf Klausener sings– we hear plangent folk guitar arpeggios at the center of an increasingly expansive arrangement. Percussion abounds, and eventually Mills follows a bird to a house where the Acorn play their song, bathed in warm, yellowish light.” – Pitchfork TV
