"Broken Heart"

There’s been a cool trend in music videos this past year of re-appropriating found footage. Whether it was Rhye’s collection of vintage exotic dancers, or Man Man’s collage of B-movie footage, these create a beautifully nostalgic web of images. Here’s the lyric video for Dr. Dog’s lovely new song, “Broken Heart,” which captures footage from old amusement parks. The sweet, sad track is synched up with rickety rollercoasters, clowns, and kids playing. It’s a charming video, just don’t think about how many safety standards those rides are probably breaking. Check out the video and some upcoming tour dates below.

  1. No tour concert in Philadelphia? This is treason!

  2. Really?… SUPPORTING the Lumineers.. That should be the other way around.

  3. Stereogum posting about Dr. Dog and Portugal The Man? Does that mean I don’t have to pretend I’m too cool to like them anymore?

  4. FYI*** First show is in Kalamazoo, MI – 8/31/13

    Loving the tune!

  5. The found footage thing has been popular for like, the last 8 or 9 years. Just saying.
