The live-performance video for Long Islanders Northern State’s “Mother May I” is way less surreal than the piña colada acid trip they took with “Better Already,” though there are a few drink references, including a mojito and a spritzer, which gets bounced off Elliot Spitzer (that could easily be a double entendre if they meant it like that). We also get to meet Hesta Prynn’s mother (that’s her to the right) and Jeanine Garofalo (not pictured). Don Quixote’s involved as well. As is producer (and Lykke Li remixer) Chuck Brody.
If you’re in the NYC area, Northern State’s playing a show 6/3 at the Knitting Factory. That’s tonight.
