The Long Island ladies of Northern State made their “comeback” of sorts in ’07 with their first record in three years (after parting ways with a major) — the Adrock/Chuck Brody produced Can I Keep This Pen? — and lending their voices to OKX … and they’re celebrating by mixing some piña coladas with hallucinogenic properties on “Better Already.” Raps, L7 melodies, and green screen enabled cartoon flights of fancy. Starring winged unicorns, god, and FRIENDSHIP!

    What an awesome disjointed piece of gold. This is the coolest thing I’ve seen on stereogum in a long time. Thanks for doing something different for once

    cute-ish video, but wow that was bad.
    like..not even bad in a fun way, bad in a forgettably insipid kind of way.
    it’s also weird because the long-haired one looks just like my swim teacher from freshman year.
