Color me a straight-up sucker for genre mingling indie rock outfit Beirut and one-eyed nurses. Their new single “Vagabond” recently gave way to a humble, monochromatic video offering in which "thirsty" WWII era sailors and soldiers attempt to woo nurses with faulty moral compasses and share the ballroom floor with a very funky (actual) chicken. My favored story thread of the many, of course, is the gentleman in an earnest frenzy just behind its tail feathers, because he obviously has his priorities straight.
With the help of Simpsons animator Jon Vermilyea (best known for his “Treehouse of Horror” episodes), Queensland, Australian lo-fi pop punk mopheads Bleeding Knees Club tackle the first video from their eponymous album out in March. My grandma pants are in the wash (ew, wait) -- I’ll excuse the MIA manners and urge to schedule a clip n’ dip because these kids are all right. Now give "Boobs" her money back, ya turdwalders.
