If he weren’t so fond of dropping the word ‘motherfucker’ into his music, we would totally play these guys around the house more often. We refuse to spell their name in all caps, though. It looks as though they’re yelling at us.
Capitalization aside, we’ve been high on these guys since “Burn It Down” landed in our inboxes early last year – in fact, we were so eager to share that song in this column that we went with a homemade video of the song instead of waiting for the band to shoot an official clip – and the video for their latest single “Not Your Fault” is just too cool not to share. Half stop-motion a la Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” and half Rankin & Bass-style claymation (including an abominable snowman), this video is a throwback in the best possible way. It’s nice to see bands still put some effort into their videos.
