Erica Russo and the Good Sport Go Back to Nature in ‘Little House, Little Hill’ Video

There’s conflict among the woodland creatures in “Little House, Little Hill,” a semi-recent claymation video from Erica Russo and the Good Sport. The song is the title track to the Brooklyn indie-folk band’s 2013 album, their third LP (along with an EP) since the band members met in 2008 in Cambridge, Mass.

The video follows a bird who awakes to discover a full jar of sunflower seeds has been emptied while she slept, and sets out to find the thief. Was it the squirrel who lurks outside her birdhouse? The frog zapping sunflower seeds off a nearby lily pad before disappearing into the pond? Or the porcupine who fires quills at her when confronted? The bird does her best to investigate amid shots of band members in animal costumes playing instruments.

Russo and Co. probably won’t quite capture the same pastoral vibe in concert, but you can check for yourself on a quick run of dates the band has planned in a few weeks:

1/31 Easthampton, MA — Luthier’s
2/1 Boston, MA — The Womb @ the womb
2/2 Brooklyn, NY — Spike Hill
