Kevin Barnes is no stranger to visual stimulation and an obsession with sex, two staples of his band of Montreal and their outlandish live shows. So the video for "Famine Affair" (off False Preist) deals with an oppressed man living in a woman's world, where he is only used for one thing (and it's not quite what you think). Jason Miller and Nina Barnes direct.
From the of Montreal site: "[The video] illustrates the topic of a frustrated, lower class male living in a feminine empire, whos only task in life is to help the ruling class reproduce." It makes more sense after viewing, I think.
