New Phoenix Foundation Video: "Gone Fishing"

Horsepower, the debut album from New Zealand's The Phoenix Foundation, is finally getting released in the states May 15th. It's already been out for several years in their native land, but it will see the light of day in the U.S. and I hope they get the credit they deserve. It's a record I've been spinning tons already this year (according to my iTunes play count, I think the majority of the record takes the lead.)

One of my nine favorite songs, "Gone Fishing," now has a super-cool video to go along with it's happy go lucky melody. It's definitely the track that stands out from the rest of the album, which charts in to more electronic and sedate territory (the only other song that jumps out is the aptly titled "Celebrate!")

The band has also scored the awkward tale of love, Eagle Vs. Shark, starring the fabulous Jermaine Clement of Flight Of The Conchords fame (anyone remember seeing them at Sub Pop's SXSW party last year? Greatest. Performance. Ever. Now where's their album!? They will be at Bonnaroo, though.)

Anyway, to the point of this post:
