Museum Mouth’s ‘Riff From My Head’ Contains Old Fonts, Spooky Skulls
North Carolina noise-pop outfit Museum Mouth have shared a video for "Riff From My Head," a highlight off last year's album Popcorn Fish Guinea Pig. Directed by Blake Raynor and filmed amidst the band's recent tour with pop-punk legends Say Anything, the improvised, lo-fi clip plays out like a kaleidoscopic fever dream, awash in spooky skulls and dated Microsoft fonts (shout-out to Papyrus).
"I think at one point, [Raynor] and I were talking about doing a shot-for-shot remake of Everclear's vid for 'Santa Monica,'" drummer and vocalist Karl Kuehn joked in a statement to CLRVYNT. "That obviously didn't happen, but I'm glad he remembered I love Everclear. Don't know where he got wind that I was obsessed with [draconian] subtitles, but I'm glad that made it in there, too." Same here. Watch below, and scroll down for the band's upcoming tour dates.
Museum Mouth's Popcorn Fish Guinea Pig LP came out last year via Equal Vision.
