Love this clip and that Loose Fur don’t take themselves too seriously, even though Born Again In The USA is a serious contender for my favorite alt-country disc of the year so far. More song-y than the group’s last, which I found uneven. The band members don’t appear in this clip, but that probably worked best with Jim O’Rourke’s schedule, since he’s producing or contributing to a different album every day.
Link sent to us by reader Gary, who notes it looks like it could have been directed by Tweedy’s 11-year-old son (it’s all Japanese Power Rangers with a sweet dance off toward the end). “The monster totally gets served.”
