Barsuk is thrilled to debut Menomena's video for plumage, off their new album Moms. Pitchfork premiered the video, deeming it "a very strange Mexican standoff... ridiculous and awesome." The video, available for posting here, was directed by Trevor McMahan, who described the clip as "the ultimate illustration of the beautiful conflict in the band's music — that aural struggle between instruments and ideas that is complex, satisfying, and always unmistakably Menomena."

On the production of the video, he continues, "our crew weathered some serious acts of god during this production — including, but not limited to: a shooting, bomb squad evacuation, a news helicopter crash, thunderstorms, near electrocution by lightning (which can actually be seen in the last shot of the video), gale force winds, destroyed equipment, and flash flooding two shoot days in a row — and the video nearly missed seeing the light of day. It was almost as if Jesus did not want us to make this Menomena video. But apparently, we had more chest hair." ·read less·
