The Mountain Goats have dropped a gem of a new video to support their latest album, Transcendental YouthThe poppy “Cry for Judas” traverses through a series of Andersonian visuals that draw smiles (mice mazes!), gasps (singing nose bleeds!), and awkward tears (love and family!). There’s a great juxtaposition of classic and modern American imagery that clashes without any bells and whistles, punches or kicks. Fans should also have fun picking out the various band members interspersed throughout. Start looking by streaming below.

Transcendental Youth is out now via Merge. Be sure to catch them on their recently expanded tour, featuring CoSigned musician Matthew E. White
