The Postal Service capture the weirdest (and most painful) laundry day ever in their new video for “A Tattered Line of String”, Directed by AB/CD/CD, the dreamy clip works off a simple premise: What if the laundry machine turned on you? The execution recalls the likes of Michel Gondry, which is a compliment being that this is the sort of iconic flair that sticks in the memory banks (e.g. “Oh, the Lego video.”; “Remember that running dude on fire?”; “How about the one with the big hand?”). Now, you’ll always recall this video as “the fucked up laundromat.” Watch it below and write a reminder for yourself to empty out the hamper and do some laundry — preferably not at this place.

The track is one of two previously unreleased tracks off their recent Top Star reissue of Give Up. In related news, we recently caught The Postal Service ‘s sold-out performance at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Read that here.
