Video of The Day: The Beths

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.

It's only fitting for The Beths to release the video for "Uptown Girl" right as they kick off their most recent tour. You see, the song's video is a dizzying home video montage of footage from various tour dates on previous tours. How very apropos.

The punchy power fuzz of the song on its own is sheer dynamite, cutesy vocals almost obscuring the black comedy of some of the vocals (the sonic equivalent of Heathers, perhaps, minus murder and explosions).

In any event, the New Zealanders will be calling here in DC over the weekend (3/2 at Union Stage, to be exact), and one would expect this dandy of a song to be played.
