The Both – “Volunteers Of America” Video
Earlier this year, alt-rock lifer buddies Aimee Mann and Ted Leo teamed up to form a new duo called the Both and to release a profoundly catchy self-titled power-pop debut. Both Mann and Leo had been funny in music videos before, and they’re just as funny together. Director Daniel Ralston, who previously did the band’s “Milwaukee” video, returns for their new “Volunteers Of America” clip, which takes place at a raucously drunken back-yard wedding. It gives us a rare opportunity to see Leo do the worm. The Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs, Samhain’s London May, and the veteran character actor Russ Tamblyn all appear. Watch the video below.
The Both is out now on Mann’s SuperEgo label.
