Halloween special! SPIN has procured the unsettling, Matthew Salton-directed clip for "252," a heart-breaker from Gem Club's just released debut LP, Breakers. There's a good deal of pseudo-blood and mouth-foam and foreboding bathroom imagery and pale skin — the kind of thing you expect to see on Halloween, though not as the visual compliment to such stark, elegiac piano music. Which is precisely why it works so well.

We feel so uncomfortable right now!
