Video: Dangermouse & Daniele Luppi - "Two Against One" (feat. Jack White)

The first video off Dangermouse and Danielle Luppi's Rome, their homage to the classical soundtracks of the 1960s Spaghetti-westerns that they both love. Chris Milk handles the animation for the record's most popular cut, much thanks to a Jack White feature, and describes the idea behind it all:

"Myself, Brian (aka Danger Mouse), and the producers Anthony Bregman (Eternal Sunshine) and Megan Ellison (True Grit), are currently developing the Rome project into a theatrical feature film. While the video for "Two Against One" is hand-drawn cell animation, the film would be live action. The music video is essentially the fever dream of the antagonist of the story. It's mostly his backstory, his life before the tale we see in the movie."

Rome is out now. Give it a listen if you're in the mood for something a bit out the ordinary.
