Late last summer, local honky-tonkin' balladeers Little Bandit released their eponymous debut EP. It's a release that wraps up both the "alt" and the "trad" sides of rock-infused country music, and it's seasoned with a splash of camp. How's about another serving?
Little Bandit has a brand-new Ryan Kendrick-directed video for their tune "Platform Shoes," and you can watch that above. "Shoes" — which was recorded by Benjamin Stager at RCA Studio B — is a song about a lady of the night who ends up ... well, I don't want to spoil the ending for you, but the video is a pretty direct interpretation. Not only that, but you've also got cameos from local songstress Tristen, Ettes frontwoman Coco Hames, sometime Nashville's Dead photog Bekah Cope and Buffalo Clover's Margo Price as streetwalkers, not to mention Lonely H frontman Mark Fredson as a black-hearted John who apparently has no problem with leaving pools of forensic evidence laying around. And no, shots of bourbon are not suddenly available at Dino's, the beer-only East Side dive where a chunk of the video was shot. It's acting. Acting! Stream the tune itself below, or purchase it via Little Bandit's Bandcamp page for a buck.
