Bed & Bugs,
the most recent album from Obits, was released in the fall of 2013 on
Sub Pop Records. Between then and now, and in an effort to highlight the
excellent qualities of their third full-length album, the band has
toured these United States and Europe and released a couple of other,
very good music videos. There’s one for the song “Spun Out” and also one for the song “Operation Bikini”
(in which, as one Youtube commenter astutely observed, there are no
bikinis). And now, there is a new and really, very great animated video
for the number “I’m Closing In” which was directed by Paul Clark. Please make sweet click with the embed to watch it!
Recent live footage from Spain’s Radio 3 and the newly posted KEXP live session the band recorded here in Seattle this past November both demonstrate the undeniable appeal of Obits’ live shows. Please get into it.
