Crime

Where has crowd-funding led us? Perhaps the direction of Real Estate's new video for "Crime" (from this year's Atlas). In it, director Tom Scharpling (as played by Andy Daly of Comedy Central's The Review) explains that the video was paid for by different people in exchange for product placements and video concepts. So it becomes a cinematic edsel with undead skateboarders, ceramic figurines, a tribute to yesteryear, celebrity cameos and...maybe the Westboro Baptist Church. You can watch it below.

Having wrapped up their North American tour, Real Estate will be in Europe starting next month before returning for North American festival dates and then their biggest NYC show yet at Terminal 5 on October 2. Tickets are still available.

Good video wasted on one of the most boring bands around. I know you have Jersey pride, Scharpling, but you're better than this.
