Hospitality – “Going Out” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

It's been almost exactly five years since we named Hospitality a Band To Watch, and today, as they release their second full-length Trouble, we have a new way for you to watch them. Actually, it's not them you'll be watching in Scott Jacobson's "Going Out" video. Esteemed musical spouses Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips --… More »

Eleanor Friedberger – “My Own World” Video

The Fiery Furnaces' Eleanor Friedberger gave us the supremely likable solo album Personal Record earlier this year, and she's now made four videos with the reliably funny director Scott Jacobson. The latest of those is for the Personal Record song "My Own World," and it stars indie actress Kate Lyn Sheil as a young woma… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I didn't post one of these lists last week, because Thanksgiving, which meant that we had a ton of worthy videos to choose from this week, and that plenty of them didn't make it. And this would also be a good place to point out, as our own Michael Nelson noted to me, that the… More »

Superchunk – “Void” Video (Feat. Jon Glaser & Jon Benjamin)

As punk lifers with decades in the game, Superchunk are good and familiar with every possible old-guy-in-the-club scenario, and their new video for "Void," a song from their truly great 2013 album I Hate Music, features a whole lot of them. Director Scott Jacobson has assembled a cast that includes every possible alt-comedy fixture named… More »

The Babies – “Mess Me Around” Video

The Woods/Vivian Girls side project the Babies released their sophomore album Our House On The Hill last year, and it's one of those albums that seems slight at first but sticks with you. The fast, catchy jangle "Mess Me Around" is a prime example of the album's stickiness, and now it's got a video from… More »

Dinosaur Jr. – “Pierce The Morning Rain” Video (Feat. Henry Rollins)

Dinosaur Jr. don't show up in their video for "Pierce The Morning Rain," a bleary jam from their 2012 album I Bet On Sky. Instead, director Scott Jacobson gives us actor James Urbaniak playing a suburban dad who becomes addicted to blasting music through massive subwoofers, mostly because that bass makes him feel like he'… More »

Nick Lowe – “Sensitive Man” Video (Feat. Wilco, Tim Heidecker, Robyn Hitchcock, Marc Maron)

Acerbic British great Nick Lowe hasn't made a music video in 18 years, but now here's a star-studded, slightly ridiculous one for his song "Sensitive Man." Director Scott Jacobson's clip stars comedian and podcaster Marc Maron as a reluctant attendee at a self-help lesson taught by Tim Heidecker. Wilco and Robyn Hitchcock also make cameos. More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Lots of good music videos this week! Serial killers! Shadow-puppet dogs! Primary colors! Air rifles! Inexplicably clownish rap-star art direction! Members of the extended Stereogum family! There's just a lot to like in this week's batch, as you can see for yourself below. More »

Hospitality – “Friends Of Friends” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Class of '09 BTW Hospitality didn't rush out an album upon first internet mention, and that uncommon patience has paid off: the NYC trio landed an enviable slot on Merge Records' roster last year, and will release their debut LP next week. To celebrate that, their first single "Friends Of Friends" has a video directed… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This week's music-video MVP was whoever was responsible for researching New York signage in Kindness's "Cyan" video. That must've taken a lot of work! As good as that video was, though, it couldn't make it onto this week's list. There's just too much great stuff out there. Let's get cracking. More »

Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks – “Senator” Video (Feat. Jack Black)

The Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks song "Senator" has a video now, and it's a doozy. Jack Black, hamming it up hardcore as always, plays an unstable, cattle prod-wielding politician who tries to party with his much-younger campaign aides. Things, as you'd imagine, do not go well. Gary Cole, the boss from Office Space, get… More »
