José González "Open Book" (video)
José González appears to have been carrying around some personal baggage since that Calexico video he was in last month. This is judging by his new video for "Open Book" from his album Vestiges & Claws.

The clip for this quiet acoustic song shows the songwriter lugging around a large wooden box. This turns out to contain a quasi-human worm creature, which is connected to González through an umbilical cord-like tube in his back. But can the songwriter shed the dead weight and become his own man?

The clip was directed by Mikel Cee Karlsson. It's the sequel to Calexico's video for "Falling from the Sky," which also starred González and his wormy parasite.
