John Darnielle and the Mountain Goats released their latest studio album, Transcendental Youth, last week, and next week they’ll be coming to New York to play CMJ 2012. And falling in between these two events is the release of a music video for the album track “Cry For Judas.” Check it out below.
 

 
Contrasting the upbeat guitar strums and brass horn sounds of “Cry For Judas” is a video set in a small, rural, Christian town, where children and adults commit “sins” and face the consequences. There’s also a little mood lightening courtesy of a curious mouse running through a maze.
