Pavement guitarist Spiral Stairs, aka Scott Kannberg, will release his new album We Wanna Be Hyp-No-Tized on March 22 and he's just made a video for the title track, directed by Joe Salinas, which also gets a Fall-esque subtitle of "Mag Ed" and features Scott's dad, Duane, in a supporting role. “While I was surrounded by alligators in the swamps of southern Louisiana I received a text message from Spiral in Mexico requesting that I make a weird music video for his upcoming album," Joe tells us. "I asked how weird, he said full weird. I go okay. Next thing I know I’m in an RV shooting in Big Sur with his dad Duane Kannberg and then ended up in a desert out in Marfa, Texas with actor Chris Hillen. I edited the video in an RV with the occasional loud ass train passing by that would give me anxiety. It’s based on true events.” Scott adds, "'Hypnotized (Mag Ed)' is a fun little fall like bo ditty about following false prophets. Joe got a little close with the vid to past lives, both his and mine, if we’re being honest. My father plays the mob boss. But not in real life!" We're premiering this Full Weird video and you can watch it below.
