The Julie Ruin – “Just My Kind” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Last year, Kathleen Hanna’s new band the Julie Ruin released Run Fast, their debut album, and they brought in James Murphy to mix one of its tracks, the real-talk love song “Just My Kind.” That song is now the band’s third music video, following “Oh Come On” and “Goodnight, Goodbye,” and it shows the different band members playing outdoors in various different locations: New York, Australia, the Catskill Mountains, Hawaii. Hanna filmed some of it, as did Brendan Kennedy, editor Carmine Covelli, and Hanna’s husband, Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz. And you probably won’t see anything more romantic today than Kathleen Hanna fighting to stay upright while waves pummel her, singing directly to the King Ad-Rock while he films her. Watch it and check out some newly announced tour dates below.
7/20 – Minneapolis, MN @ Triple Rock
7/23 – Vancouver, BC @ Fortune Sound Club
7/25 – Portland, OR @ Crystal Ballroom
Run Fast is out now on the band’s own Dischord-distributed TJR label.
