Video: The Mountain Goats' "This Year"

The Mountain Goats' new album The Sunset Tree is one of my favorite albums of the first half of this year and the tune "This Year" is one of the best. Although I could have used the song more as I struggled through 2004.

The video is kind of amusing. The close-ups on John Darnielle catch some entertaining facial twitches. However, the best moment is when the guy in the black ski mask offers him a drink in the middle of the video.

You have to suffer through a pop-up ad and a brief commercial before the video starts but it isn't too bad.
