Mike Miko are a fun live band, so they wisely made a fun live video for We Be Xuxa’s “I Got A Lot (New New New).” Speaking of which: Much of the current DIY or lo-fi or “shitgaze” (or whatever) crop is peddling something downcast (“thoughtful”) a la Blank Dogs and Dum Dum Girls and the cross-breeding Mayfair Set, Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls, and post-implosion Wavves, etc., so it’s good to sit back and see folks with smiles on their faces. Simplistic thinking, maybe, but refreshing even if you do dig all the aforementioned. Speaking of smiles, the video was directed by No Age’s Randy Randall with Lana Kim.

    I didn’t think there was a band that sounded worse or looked homelier than Vivian Girls, but I’ve been proven wrong.

    The one in the brown jacket looks like an uglier version of Maeby from Arrested Development.
    But this song is tight as fuck.

    God knows there’s no greater cardinal sin than being ‘homely’. Stereogum please post some hotter babes for Aaron to yank his tool to.

    I wasn’t being mean- merely commenting on the 3 hour span it took for anyone to chime in. C’mon kids, lighten up.

    Aaron’s comment was hysterical and you all know it.

    If I saw them at a High School talent show I’d say, “Hey, those kids are pretty good! Better than that cover of “I Kissed A Girl” by the glee club.” But in the grand spectrum of talented bands in the webiverse, that was not good. Time to stop with glorifying mediocre bands for your own justification.
