watch Local H’s “Sunday Best” video
Last month, Alt Rock vets Local H released a new album, LIFERS which was recorded by Steve Albini, mixed by J. Robbins, and features appearances from Juliana Hatfield, John McCauley (Deer Tick), and John Haggerty (Naked Raygun, Pegboy). While the record finds them still quite capable of angsty ragers, it also shows a quiet side, as on the delicate "Sunday Best." Frontman Scott Lucas says "Sunday Best" is "a love song in the most macro way possible," continuing, "trying to place our tiny individual relationships in the tiny continuum of our tiny family blood-lines. And then put THAT into the whole of human existence — which is actually pretty tiny — and still come away with the thought that finding love is some kind of miracle. It’s like a rebuke to that Bogart line in Casablanca about the troubles of two people not adding up to a 'hill of beans.' What we’re saying is that the hill of beans is EVERYTHING. If nothing matters — maybe everything matters."
We've got the premiere of the video for "Sunday Best," which superimposes performance footage against vintage, silent era film footage and more. You can watch that, and listen to LIFERS, below.
