Vinyl Video: Grifters, “Bummer”

The Modern Memphis music scene has a unique style of architecture,  the biggest pillars of which are obscure rock icons better known for their eccentricities than their enormous hits.  A key example is early ’90s acts The Grifters.

April marks the 20th anniversary of one of band’s most pivotal albums, One Sock Missing, which rests between the sound of the band’s work in the ’80s and what their upcoming work would become.  The record garnered positive reviews from the likes of SPIN and New York Press, who rallied behind the band’s unique stripped-down slop rock and their special detail to melody and content.

In celebration of the anniversary, the band is producing videos for the tracks on One Sock Missing.  They’ve recently released the video for their song “Bummer,” and it’s something we think you should get your eyeballs on.
