Video Of The Day: Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever

There's a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

June 15 is going to be great for many reasons, not least of which that there's a new Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever record coming out! From said record, Hope Downs, "Talking Straight" is addictive in a way that's almost unfair. The Melbourne gents wield their deceptively sunny jangle so effortlessly, so potently, that resistance is quite futile.

The video is more than a little bit kitsch, and features awkwardly-angled closeups, a bevy of disco balls, and silk pajamas. But of course. Out since April, I haven't been able to shake this one from my brain for weeks now. Not that I'm particularly inclined to do so.

Keep an eye out for more Rolling Blackouts C.F. live dates soon, word is they'll be back in the US later this year. If you missed out the first time, don't make the same mistake again.
