Instead of spilt wine, war metaphors, or election year encouragements, Against Me! make like “Bastards Of Young” in their b&w video for “New Wave.” It’s different than the label promo thing. Someone plops a copy of New Wave on the turntable, cues up track one, smokes a cigarette, sips from their umbrella cocktail, listens, and all the while makes sure to maintain proper product placement in the upper right hand corner. Don’t get too cozy, though, there are a couple last-second surprises.
Must be a fan of the old stuff.
