Fleet Foxes - Mykonos Video

I'm a little behind on this post, but I wanted to point out that Sean Pecknold's video wizardry shines through yet again. This tortured genius's latest stop-motion music video for the Fleet Foxes song "Mykonos" is a beautiful adventure of two tiny paper triangles (closely resembling two feet at times). I love the little homage scene (with the eyes) from "The Universe & You."

The video was debuted for the UK single release of "Mykonos" b/w "False Knight on the Road". To hear the tradional rendition of "False Knight," head over to Robin Pecknold's solo page (he'll be posting more covers in the near-future under the monikers White Antelope or Monte Cristo). Watch the video, and enjoy...
