Music Video: Sing Me Spanish Techno by The New Pornographers

Well, I guess it's going to be music video day. I still hadn't decided what to post for today, but seeing rotaryphones's post gave me an idea.

The New Pornographers are a Canadian indie rock band, not particularly queer to my knowledge, but I highly recommend them anyway.

The video for their song Sing Me Spanish Techno, though, is very queer. I don't really want to say more, because part of the fun is watching it unfold. It's only four and a half minutes, so just click on over to YouTube and watch it. :D

Oh yay! I love this video (and The New Pornographers). Now my brain's thinking of all my other favorite queer videos...I bet we could come up with a rec list just for that. :)

I love this one by a Japanese band called Yuzu. The pretty girl singing? Is a guy. He sings the whole song using female speech, too. (The song lyrics don't really have anything to do with the video, so I think the video is fairly understandable without knowing Japanese.)

Aw, that was great! I have a fondness for Androgyny by Garbage, even though it's not that great a song, and tbh not that great a video either. Ha.

I've loved the New Pornographers for a while now, but I've never seen any of their videos before. This one is just awesome - and additionally makes me love a song i already liked so much more.

Are those the band members in the video?

I love the details in this video, and how pretty everything is, the purple eyeshadow, the way he widens his eyes beneath the blonde hair, the way the pinpink dress looks in front of the green background.

No, I think those are just actors.

The drunk man at the table in the club who passes out in the beginning and then wakes up to declare his love for the blonde is the lead singer, A.C. Newman.

Oh, that was so much fun! Thanks for the rec.

I love this song! Great rec. :-D
