We're pleased to offer the premiere of the new video from the Woolen Men, the Portland trio that's been quietly racking up an impressive catalog over the years, via cassette, vinyl, and otherwise. (Check out some of their history here and here.) The Woolen Men have an album titled Dog Years coming out later this year which culls some of the finest moments from those cassettes and out-of-print EPs. "Two Brothers" is a first taste; it's given whimsical and loving video treatment from director Leo Townsell. With animal masks, a burger BBQ, comics, toys, and a Psychic Feline 7-inch, this is about as Portland as it gets, but it all comes off as charming rather than cloying. Everything in this video looks fun, and "Two Brothers" sounds terrific. Here's looking forward to the full-length comp, coming this fall.
The Woolen Men play the Record Room (8 NE Killingsworth) on Thursday, August 23 with Lame Drivers.
