Fancy New Republic Tigers Videos

Posted By on Wed, Apr 30, 2008 at 9:39 AM

I'm about to the point where if I listen to this song one more time my head's going to fall off, but seriously -- good for the Tigers. This is some top-dollar work, probably not seen since, well, the Golden Republic was on Astralwerks and had this one done.

"Buildings & Mountains"

Summary: Tigers singer Kenn Jankowski drags a boat down the sidewalk of some Southwestern town. He passes band members along the way who join his expedition out into the desert, where they sit in the boat and look pensive. Très cinémathique.

Watch the making-of video after the jump.

The making of the "Buildings & Mountains" video.

By the way: the Tigers are blowing up on YouTube.

In other news, the RTs are playing at the Tribeca Film Festival with the Hold Steady (fuckin' A!) and then hitting the road with Nada Surf. Note that the Letterman spot has been moved to May 22.
