"Void" - Superchunk
I was going to prattle on about the new Sky Ferreira video using my usual poor wit and easy pop culture references, but the Vevo and Tumblr’s intolerance of each other shot that down. And you know what? This is more fun anyways. “Night Time, My Time” left me feeling unsettled and more than a little dirty. Let’s hang with the funny folks.
Superchunk contemplate the titular void by taking on the role of “old folks at the indie rock show.” They’re too old for this noise. They’re too old to be at this skuzzy Shea Stadium show. They’re way too old to mosh. Uncool. Can you believe that old dude with the beard? What the fuck?
They’re self-effacing with a sense of humor, though, and they pal around with some cool comedy/tv people. They may feel uncomfortable, they may be out of place, but at least they have Jon Benjamin’s voice.
Listen to I Hate Music if you’re behind. Top notch, these four. The video is directed by Scott Jacobson.
