Some videos and news as you recover from a weekend overrun by beer advertisements…
Tweedy released the Nick Offerman-directed video for “Low Key” last week, and it should lift your spirits up as you kick off your week because it’s hilarious and filled with a lot of great cameos. See how many you can spot, and be sure to watch until the end when the “twist” of who is actually in charge of the record industry is revealed.
I’ve read that this year is the “Year of the Booty”, but I think that’s bullshit, because every year is the “Year of the Booty”. Even so, I was not expecting to see quite this amount of posterior-shaking in a Mastodon video, until I remembered that they were from Atlanta. Here’s their new video, “The Motherload”, which should not be watched at your place of employment.
“Twice as Hard” seems an odd choice for a follow-up single to “All the Rage Back Home”, but it inspired Paul Banks to film this boxing-focused video for the El Pintor closer. The track has grown on me with repeated listens, and in my mind seems to be an improvement over the similar closer “The Lighthouse”.
Not only has Death From Above 1979 returned with a brilliant second album, but they are also the subject of a documentary about their rise and years apart. The trailer definitely has me pumped.
