Sarah Jaffe’s video for “Clementine” is simple, yet surreal as well. It features a group of men dressed in a style of clothing that’d fit with Southern fashion from the 1800s. They look like they’re prepared to build a house, but they all grab on to a rope and pull. What’s at the other end? Jaffe’s hand. Eventually, the songwriter loses this tug of war and is absconded for a baptizing.
