Music: Other music.

Okay, so apparently the Blitzen Trapper awesomeness needs a little more time in the awesome shop. But that's cool, we'll go to Ha Ha Tonka's ballad-dirge "Caney Mountain" while we wait for the BT video to officially drop.

Named after a Missouri State Park, the Springfield-based indie rock unit formed in '04 under the moniker Amsterband. They released one album under the old name, but had swapped for the current name in time to release 2006's Buckle of the Bible Belt.

I'm a huge fan of the Caligari meets Caroline vibe of this video. I think it captures the sort of rotting-fairground rawness of the tune. Dig, Screamers and Screamettes.
