Drugdealer debut The End of the Comedy is out today
Chances are that Drugdealer will be paying us a visit in April, but we’re not making any promises just yet, although the suspense is killing. Since its release this September on Weird World, we’re no longer strangers to The End of Comedy. The video for the title track comes as a Thursday treat, equipped with cameos from the L.A. crew including Mac DeMarco, Weyes Blood and Shags Chamberlain. Here’s what Drugdealer’s alter-ego Michael Collins had to say about it:
“Andrew Storrs, an old friend of mine and Natalie Mering’s, came to visit us in Los Angeles and document a few days a little while ago. I’ve always loved his filmmaking—capturing moments in our friends lives in a really magical Cinéma vérité form. Basically, it’s a snapshot of a particular moment while living downtown here in L.A.; playing piano, seeing friends and skating around. The song here is one of my favorite collaborations of all time—me and Nat recorded the whole thing very naturally when she was still living in Far Rockaway, NY about a year ago. It was simple and fun to make, and no one better to represent this on video than Andrew Storrs.” (Pitchfork).
