The Walkmen - "Four Provinces" (video)

I always felt like this should’ve been the first single off of 2008’s You & Me. Even though it lacks the awesome organ swells of “In The New Year”, the percussion is infectious and the misleading chord progression always satisfies.  The video is pretty good—the still-motion stuff is interesting but there are so many beautiful scenes and scenery in the video that, at times, I want everything captured smoothly.  Overall, it looks really nice, and there’s something refreshingly ego-less about a band who doesn’t appear in their own video.
