Penicillin Baby's 'Not Getting Any Younger,' 7-Inch out Today [Fresh Vid]

Posted By on Tue, Apr 29, 2014 at 12:40 PM

Update: A Penicillin Baby representative tells us that the "Not Getting Any Younger" video was prematurely made public, and it has since been pulled. The video will go live again next week. For now, hear both "Not Getting Any Younger" and its B-side, "Thought It Couldn't Be This Way," via the Soundcloud embed after the jump.

Fans of exceptionally tuneful and dreamy local psychedelic pop outfit Penicillin Baby have long had plenty of groovy tunes to pore over at PB's Bandcamp page — good stuff, and worth surfing through. Unfortunately, however, there haven't been many opportunities to get physical copies of P-Baby's material. Until now! Today, local DIY rock 'n' roll label Jeffery Drag Records — which I profiled for the Scene's ongoing "Label Makers" series almost precisely one year ago — is releasing Penicillin Baby's "Not Getting Any Younger" 7-inch, which features the B-side "Thought It Couldn't Be This Way" and can be purchased for $6.50 via this link.

To accompany the 7-inch, Penicillin Baby has a brand-new video for "Not Getting Any Younger," which was directed by Western Medication frontman and frequent Jeff Drag collaborator Justin Landis. Get a load of all the fittingly far-out visuals above. PB will celebrate the single's release with a show May 10 at The Basement — sharing the bill will be garage rockers Faux Ferocious (who also have some fresh jams), power trio Moseley and brainy bedroom indie-rock troupe Quichenight. And in the meantime, let PB frontman Jon Conant's message settle into your soul. "You're not getting any younger," he sings. "You're wasting your youth sitting on your ass just to take a number."

I know that's right.
