Video: Wallows – “Scrawny”
Directed by Dillon Dowdell. From Nothing Happens, out now on Atlantic.
I’d have never heard of this group except that the leader of my favorite band has been pimping them nonstop on social media. Turn out one of the Wallows is her boyfriend!
They’re a major label indie rock band comprised of child actors, so it’s fully understandable if you don’t want to give them a chance. I totally get it but this song is pretty catchy and the video is kinda funny.
The chorus goes “I’m a scrawny motherfucker with a cool hairstyle” which, you know, certainly evokes a time in one’s life.

Video: Gerard Way – “Dasher” (ft. Lydia Night)
Directed by Aaron Hymes. Single out now on Reprise.
‘Tis the season.
Last time we checked in on Gerard Way he was getting spooky for Halloween. Now he’s got a Christmas song. Did we miss his Thanksgiving single? Can we expect a New Years song next?
Turns out Way’s been playing “Dasher” live since at least 2014, but he finally got around to recording a studio version. And he recruited Lydia Night from the Regrettes to call in for a spoken interlude in the middle.
When you go, can you come
‘Cause I feel safe in your arms
And she’s got dashes in her stars
Nothing better than a melancholy holiday jam.
