ABOVE: PEANUT BUTTER LOVESICLE
Peanut Butter Lovesicle’s new video, “Black Eyed Blues,” falls somewhere in between Jimi Hendrix, the Allman Brothers, and the Black Keys—via Whitesnake. Electric-guitar and drum-led, with psychedelic writing on the drum-set, “Black Eyed Blues” features model Julie Henderson writhing in a very tight leopard print dress with very big hair (Cindy Crawford, we’ve found a job to ease your ’80s nostalgia!). Henderson is in a smoky Brooklyn basement, rather than on the hood of a white car, but the sex appeal commensurate to the ’80s video glamazon, harkening back to a time when women who are not Lara Stone were allowed to have breasts. Ed Westwick watches Henderson forlornly in a Village People-esque white leather cap (what would Chuck Bass say?!) before starting a bar fight with a smug, stripe-wearing hipster. The video is directed by duo Evil Twin, composed of artist Todd DiCiurcio and filmmaker Taylor Steele. “Black Eyed Blues” is the band’s first new single since their debut EP, Heavy Daze, Wildcat Craze, and live album The Raucous Kitten. Luckily for us, it will not be their last; the boys of PBL (brothers Jake and Mike D’Arc and cousin Timmy Miller) have a new album in the works set to drop in March 2012.
