What a good time for music videos. The real kind, not the Vh-1 kind. Former Juxtapoz featured artist Jamie Caliri is at the helm of the Edward Gorey/Hugo-esque music video for The Shins "The Rifle's Spiral," and we have been getting emails all morning about it. Well, here it is.

Nowness reports:  Sketching the short’s narrative from any lyrics that grabbed his attention, Caliri had free rein to let his imagination run wild, resulting in a surreal stop-motion animation. “I have always loved Edward Gorey’s illustration work and his influence is apparent throughout the video,” says Caliri. “Also, seeing Martin Scorsese’s Hugo three times subconsciously veered my thoughts onto the magic theme.”
