I didn’t write about Against Me!’s set at the SPIN party at Stubb’s — because obviously Against Me! are great live, duh — but it was the best set I saw during all of SXSW. And now they’ve come out with a video for “Black Me Out,” the furious closer of their wonderful new album Transgender Dysphoria Blues. Director Joshua Mikel’s video, which is really half a lyric video, seems bent on proving that shadow puppetry can be fucking disturbing, and parts of it are NSFW, so be advised. It’s below.
Transgender Dysphoria Blues is out now on Against Me!’s own Total Treble label, and it’s still the best album I’ve heard in 2014 thus far.
