Tonight, had a few beers on set of The Milkstains “Sink or Swim” video shoot by Space Camp Productions. It was a blast!
The video was released in time for Halloween!
Update: The video was released today (August 6) on NPR music.
NPR’s writer Lars Gotrich remarks: “What sets Positive No’s painfully true and hilarious parody apart from a needless exercise in nostalgic irony is how charmingly personal it is. In fact, many of the artifacts in the video come from the band’s own collections, including bassist Sadie Powers’ homemade Smashing Pumpkins board game from middle school (!) and a prop from the Sonic Youth “Dirty Boots” video. Its members were also deeply entrenched in the scene: In the early ’90s, Tracy Wilson was the vocalist for Dahlia Seed, a heavy and angular emo band that split the difference between Drive Like Jehu and Sunny Day Real Estate during a time when both were still figuring out their own sounds.”
