Suckers have released the final installment in their series of music videos for their tune "A Mind I Knew" off of their debut album Wild Smile. It's the last of four (one from each member of the band). This one, from guitarist and singer Austin Fisher, features a cacophony of found CGI animation tests. As Fisher himself put it, "I like how unnatural and creepy things get when an amateur animator is simply trying to create an animation which depicts human hair swinging naturally or a woman smiling. It's an innocent gesture but the result seems totally wrong in the end." Unnatural and creepy is right — this video definitely puts an eerie spin on the song.

Wild Smile is out now, won widespread critical acclaim throughout the summer, and can be streamed below. If that's not good enough, the band has embarked on a fall tour in support of Menomena in the US and then of Yeasayer in Europe. If you can't catch that (the US leg is wrapping up), we at Baeblemusic filmed a concert with the band at Bowery Ballroom that you can watch free of charge here. -peter menniti
