Watch: Happy Hour Gets Very NSFW in Stripmall Architecture's Video for "Dusk Drinks"

At what point does a music video stop being a music video, and start being a soft-core porn short with a good soundtrack? Actually, who cares: the ladies in Stripmall Architecture's new video for the slow, grinding "Dusk Drinks" may take things (quite a bit) farther than the standard after-work happy hour -- at least the ones we get invited to -- but unlike some highly NSFW videos we've seen, its visuals still fit the music. The S.F. band's "Dusk Drinks" is a dark-hued seduction tale, full of low, buzzing synths and ethereal vocals. With a refrain that goes, "I said no more, and she said, drink, drink, drink," it makes sense that the song would have a video filled with apples, red wine, moody lighting, and two women getting very into each other. Watch the clip after the jump, but make sure you're in a place where this highly NSFW sort of thing is okay.

"Dusk Drinks" is the B-side of a new single available on Tricycle Records.

Oh, and a bonus about this band: When we saw Dead Milkmen a few weeks ago, Rodney Anonymous went on a long monologue about why he loves San Francisco. One of the things he mentioned was the fact that it's the home of Stripmall Architecture.

  • 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.'"
