watch Kirin J Callinan’s absurd ‘Off the Record’ mockumentary (w/ Mac DeMarco, Mark Ronson & more)
Australia's Kirin J Callinan has a larger than life persona, as anyone knows who has seen his shows, his work with Jack Ladder, or perused his sometimes NSFW Instagram feed. The magic and mystery that is KJC is on full display in the just-released, Kirin J Callinan - Off The Record, which charts the rise and fall of his syrupy ballad "Tellin' Me This" (which may not actually exist outside of this video). In a style fans of VH1's Behind the Music will recognize, Kirin reflects on the song and its total lack of chart success, with on-camera anecdotes from Mark Ronson, Mac DeMarco, Sebastien Tellier, Jack Black, members of The Go-Betweens, Weyes Blood, Liam Finn and others. It is, like Kirin himself, absurd and kind of awesome. Watch below.
You can catch Kirin on tour with Pond later this spring, including two NYC shows, and he'll be on Season 2 of Top of the Lake.
