Watch the New Endlessly Ironic Still Flyin' Video, 'Victory Walker'

Yes, this new video from local freaks Still Flyin' is apparently the effusively ironic, tongue-in-cheek ode to "Smooth Criminal," Miami Vice, and the like that it seems. Lead weirdo Sean Rawls says it was filmed late one Sunday night in Athens, Georgia, where no booze is sold on Sundays, hence the empty streets/loner-dude setting and eerie vibes. Clues to apparent ironic intent include: headbands, pastel blazers, shilouettes of rum cocktails, and the alley dancing at that closes things out. Not that you really needed any clues.

This comes from the San Francisco-via-the-world collective Still Flyin', whose love for pastels, '80s kitsch, and smooth music is never to be underestimated. The song's not a bad '80s gag either, even if it is about 90 seconds longer than it should be.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
