New Black Kids Video - "I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You"

You have to figure this was the one band least envious of the Vampire Weekend hypestorm. While both sides of the Atlantic were lavishing praise on the young Columbia grads, the even younger Jacksonville Kids were able to enjoy a few moments in the shade and out of the scorching spotlight scrutiny. Which gave everyone enough time to pause and remember, hey, "I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend..." is a really fun song. Well we hope they enjoyed their time out, because with this video, the proper Almost Gold push (i.e. so long, free MySpace demos) is on. This is a re-recorded version of the song you know -- a little sturdier in the rhythm section, a little brighter in the mix -- and the video's colors and cheerleaders makes good on all those cheer-core tags the track got back around CMJ. The clip's a tad scattered -- it's a visual hodgepodge of powdered wigs, neon shadows, and literal lyric illustrations (two left feet, represented by ... two left feet) but they are still kids, after all. - Source
