Quasi Unveil “Little White Horse” Video, Take Away Show

The music of Quasi and yours truly go way back and, frankly, it’s absurd that Sam Coomes, the band’s frontman, former Heatmiser member, and Elliott Smith friend/collaborator, hasn’t gotten more love around here. In any event, Corin Tucker’s recent praise for Quasi’s latest LP, American Gong, provided that extra push I needed to declare this record not only one of the best indie rock records of the year so far, but even one of Quasi’s best.

I met Sam Coomes once, and I must say the intensity of this man was wonderfully scary. Still is, in fact, even via videos on the Interwebs. Check out their new Vanessa Renwick-directed video to American Gong’s “Little White Horse” below, as well as “You Fucked Yourself” from their 1998 album (my personal fave) Featuring “Birds,” performed live on A Take Away Show (via Rawkblog) below:
