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 iPod right now: Fleet Foxes.

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, as Stereogum puts it, "if psychedelic folk music could be made out of clay, it would look like this."
