New Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks Video: "Cinnamon and Lesbians"

Posted by Lisa Wells on Wed, Dec 11, 2013 at 11:29 AM

In case you missed yesterday’s release of the new Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks video “Cinnamon and Lesbians,” it’s worth a gander.

Directed by Jay Winebrenner, the latest video from Wig Out at Jagbags, opens with drummer Jake Morris being shanghaied by a modern-day pirate (Dan Kim), and it’s pretty much lo-fi madcap adventure from there on out. Winebrenner is eccentrically literal in his interpretation of the lyrics, beat for beat, from the “glassblowing funky neighbors” to Joe Kelly’s Meisner-esque performance of a “smooth talking jack-off jailer.” This will remind some viewers of dorkier days, when “alternative” music-videos got a little goofy. If you hemorrhaged the middle '90s watching 120 Minutes, prepare to be pleased.

*cast and crew can be found nightly at Tiga: 1465 NE Prescott
