Superchunk – “Me & You & Jackie Mittoo” Video

Superchunk’s emotive punk-rock rager “Me & You & Jackie Mittoo” is a passionate, powerful, catchy-as-hell song about the inadequacy of music, about how it can’t always pull off whatever miracles we need from it. Almost all of the song’s new music video, from Junebug director Phil Morrison, is a collage of still images — people holding favorite records up for the camera, set against surveillance footage of snowy sheets. The message, as far as I can tell, is that music isn’t good for everything, but it is good for some things. It’s a weirdly triumphant little video, and you can watch it below.

Superchunk’s new album I Hate Music is out tomorrow on Merge, and it is so good. Stream it here.
