The Intelligence just debuted the video for their track "Hippy Provider" from this year's terrific Everybody's Got it Easy But Me (stream it at Spotify). The clip features a sweet '80s-style Fisher all-in-one stereo system (that goes well with the "Freedom Rock" referencing lyric) and the sunny skies of Los Angeles where main brain Lars Finberg resides these days when not on the road. You can watch it below.
As noted before, The Intelligence are here for CMJ week (though no official CMJ shows) in the midst of their tour with King Tuff, including headlining our backroom stage at Friday's BV day party at Public Assembly (10/19, 5:15 PM). The show is free, with complimentary beverages by PBR, Sailor Jerry spiced rum and Mercy.
You can see them sooner than that, though, as The Intelligence play this afternoon (10/18, 4 PM) at Public Assembly for the free MySocialist day party with Wild Yaks, Mood Rings and Royal Baths. They'll then play again tonight for a not-CMJ show at Death by Audio with Canada's Absolutely Free, Parquet Courts, and Viva L'American Deathray Music (that's a great show), and then Friday afternoon (10/19, 2:40 PM) at Pianos before our day party. Do try to catch them at one (or more) of their NYC appearances, The Intelligence are a blast live.
