Ratboys – Figure (Topshelf Records)
This is “Figure” by Chicago’s Ratboys (Julia Steiner and Dave Sagan). Displaying an almost obscene devotion to melody, these folks view the world with at least one arched-eyebrow and they write songs that make you feel happy to be alive. The deliriously brilliant video was made by Bayley White & Jake Karlson tells the story of the song with a little clay Julia from the band going on all sorts of adventures. It has seriously made me reevaluate my own stop-motion stuff and I’m beginning to feel it might be crap! Oh well, check out “GL” the EP this is taken from, check out everything else they’ve done too, it’s all as good as this.
