The Decemberists Explain Calamity Song and Video

(EMI) The Decemberists have released a new music video for the song "Calamity Song," which they say is collaboration with director Michael Schur in his music video maiden voyage.

Schur is the co-creator of the sitcom, Parks and Recreation, and has also been a writer for Saturday Night Live and a producer of The Office. The video—which premiered today on the NPR Music website—was inspired by David Foster Wallace's gargantuan, mind-altering novel Infinite Jest.

It was filmed on location in Grant Park in Portland, Oregon on the rainiest July 17 in the city's history. Colin Meloy and both discuss the song and video here
