New Hold Steady Video – “Stuck Between Stations”

See how the guys are all waiting for Craig to give ‘em the go ahead to start rocking out their Brooklyn practice space and Galen is just casually reading John Berryman in the interim? That’s called foreshadowing! (Even if there’s no discernible payoff when we get to the “devil and John Berryman took a walk together” line.) Nothing really happens ’til the end (and even then, nothing really happens), but still it’s amazing that a song dealing with the Minneapolis suicide of an alcoholic beat confessionalist poet can sound so, triumphant. Leave it to THS and their Dolby cassettes.
