"With Blood Still Warm on the Ground": The Decemberists


Shooting against green screen in a studio with no superimposed effects? Not quite Jonathan Demme's video for New Order's "The Perfect Kiss," shot by Henri Alekan and Agnes Godard pulling focus, but not bad, not bad at all. The song is "O Valencia!"; voice, Colin Meloy, the director, Cat Solen, whose earlier work includes videos for Bright Eyes' "At The Bottom of Everything" and "Bowl of Oranges."
