Up and coming San Francisco-based post-punk trio, Tempo No Tempo has released a new video for their song, “Pole Position”. Directed by Bay-Area’s French Press Films, the video features the boys in a claustrophobic, never-ending Escher-like maze of a house. The detailed, DIY-production of the video is refreshing and reminiscent of early Spike Jonze videos or even the work of Michel Gondry. Oh, and the ending has something special. Wait for it…

Back in my teen years, I would spend hours watching various talk shows in order to see my favorite boybands perform their new songs and talk about themselves. My all time favorite was the Backstreet Boys. I grew up with their posters on my bedroom walls, their self-titled album was the first CD I ever bought, and I became enraged when snobbish music critics bashed them. So this past Wednesday, I had an enjoyable flashback of those days when the Backstreet Boys appeared on The Bonnie Hunt Show. The group was in fine form, cheerfully telling stories about their families and experiences on the road and performing the catchy single “Bigger”. Furthermore, Hunt is a great host. Unlike some of her daytime rivals, she seems genuinely interested and knows when the focus should be on her and when it should be on her guests. Let’s hope this kind of light yet endearing entertainment continues.
