Official video for “Cavalry Captain” directed by Daniel Kaufman and produced by Nick Becker


The Decemberists released their new EP Florasongs today (October 9), but rather than promote that short-player, the theatrical folk-rock Portlanders have released a video for "Cavalry Captain" from the prior full-length What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World.

The clip accompanying this stomping, horn-blasted anthem shows frontman Colin Meloy as the head of a religion called Decemberism. The whole thing plays out like a cheesy infomercial on a glitchy VHS tape, as the band try to sell us overpriced religious books while promising things like joy and eternal life. The whole thing plays out a bit like a parody and critique of Scientology.

Watch the Daniel Kaufman-directed clip above.
