Loads of MN music stars dance it up in the new Dead Man Winter video

As this week's print feature illustrates, the new Dead Man Winter album from Trampled by Turtles frontman Dave Simonett is pretty damn bleak. Such is the case with emotionally raw divorce records.

Conversely, the new music video for Furnace single "Destroyer" is a peppy delight ... if you ignore the tortured lyrics about dying. Instead, focus on the nifty dancing, chirping organ, and riffing guitar. 

Said nifty dancing comes via a collection of Twin Cities music stars, including Har Mar Superstar, Haley Bonar, and Sonny Knight. A dog belonging to local writer Steve Marsh makes several appearances. 

But don't take our word for it:
