Tuesday Double Feature: The Spring Standards "Here We Go" & Hills Like Elephants "Invisible Ink"

This week's Tuesday Double Feature has two wonderfully quirky videos for your viewing pleasure. If you watch close enough you'll catch some great little tidbits, so enjoy.

The Spring Standard - "Here We Go"

Like a hipster version of Weird Science.

With their latest album yellow//gold set to releases May 1st and a spring tour with Rhett Miller planned to follow quickly, the New York based The Spring Standards have a lot on their plate. Fun and energetic, I can't wait tell their show here at the wonderful Doug Fir Lounge on June 21. It might be a few months out but be sure to mark your calenders, because the show is certain to sell out.

Hills Like Elephants - "Invisible Ink"

Musicians working at a restaurant; is this a music video or a documentary?

Like a David Bowie soul experiment, Hills Like Elephants' lyrics of romantic train wrecks hide among danceable pop beats and playful key and guitar melodies. Lead by former Gun Runner frontman Sean Davenport this band seems to be having a ball with the recent release of their debut LP The Endless Charade on Requiemme Records/BMG Chrysalis. If you want a laugh, when you watch the video, keep a close eye on the drummer.
