The Postal Service's New Music Video is a Bit of a Spin (Cycle)

For their first music video in years, the Postal Service get all Inception-y on us... at a laundromat.

You know how it is: you're doing laundry one day and suddenly your clothes are the the thing that's firmly planted and it's you that's spinning! Wait, maybe that was just that acid trip I had. Nope, wrong again: it was that new music video from the Postal Service (and, of the two brand-new tracks on the 10th Anniversary Edition of Give Up, they definitely picked the better of the two songs to do a video for). The duo's videos have always been interesting, so let's just chalk it up to a good bit of their legacy and hope that they'll make another record before Owl City does.
