Video Clip of The Week: Creepoid, “Dried Out”



Wow! When was the last time you heard somebody compare a current rock tune to a track from Bob Mould’s 1994 masterpiece, File Under: Easy Listening (recorded with his band Sugar), or an infinitely less dreary version of Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box”? Never? Yeah, probably. And yet, that is what we most want to convey about this week’s featured Video Clip, Creepoid’s “Dried Out,” off the band’s new album Cemetery Highrise Slum (what a great title!), which was just released on Collect Records. And that is high praise indeed.

The band explains that the video “was filmed the day after the last show of our US tour this Spring with A Place To Bury Strangers.” The Mitchell Wojcik-directed clip was shot on location at California’s Salton Sea (an enigmatic place of myth and legend if there ever was one) and features Kurt Heasley of Lilys playing a prominent role.

Maybe we’ve watched too much Breaking Bad, but what we can’t help but think of every time we see footage taking place in an arid, desert-like landscape are those scenes of Walt and Jessie meeting up with Gus and his various malevolent henchmen in a trailer out in the middle of nowhere. Much like those tenuous negotiations, the story told in this video doesn’t end well for anybody involved.
