Just came across the above video for Mount Righteous' song "Suburban Homesick Blues," which--let's see here, wasn't on 2008's When the Music Starts or on 2009's Open Your Mouth EP, so...--certainly appears to be a brand new track, presumably from the band's upcoming full-length, due out here in the next few months.

It's a pretty fun watch, as the band goes the old-fashioned title-card route, utilizing three of its female members to play the Vanna White role and share each lyric from the song (plus a few other instructions). All in all, it kinda plays out like good ol' nagging from the parental units--only, as per usual with Mount Righteous, sufficiently more charming and adorable (even if the band can't spell "truly" correctly, oh well). Either way: Fun stuff from the always-fun, nine-piece, acoustic, not-quite-marching punks from Grapevine.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
