The Mountain Goats "Get Famous"

The Mountain Goats release their new full-length Getting Into Knives on October 23, via Merge Records. The LP follows other recent Mountain Goats releases April’s Songs for Pierre Chuvin and 2019’s In League with Dragons, it has been more than five years since we’ve had a Mountain Goats music video in our lives.

Directed by Emmy-nominated David Hollander (Ray Donovan), the music video for “Get Famous” inventively uses custom-made Mountain Goats bobbleheads to tell a story that mirrors John Darnielle’s lyrics about the pitfalls of fame. A group made up of many of Hollywood’s finest crew members shot the video over the course of 4 days during COVID-19, mastering a unique shooting style to accommodate the proportions and “acting challenges” of using bobblehead figurines.
