The Good and Bad of Family Life According to The Mountain Goats
  • TUESDAY, OCTOBER 09, 2012

  • Posted by: Andrew Gruttadaro

Oh domesticity, you are a cruel, cruel beast. The new music video for The Mountain Goats' "Cry for Judas" plays out like a sensationalized Jonathan Franzen novel where one seemingly simple family experiences a myriad of complex events. There's romantic and sibling love, parties, affairs, divorce, teen pregnancy and murder -- all in about three and a half minutes. Somehow though -- through the video's cinematography and filters and the song itself -- all of this chaos still feels warm and familiar.
Too much drama? Just enough? Tell us how you took "Cry for Judas."
