Recommended if you like: The Black Angels, Foxygen, Dr. Dog

Western New York-based psychedelic rock band Witty Tarbox released their first music video, and first single from their upcoming EP, The Adventures of Schmitty: issue #1 v RARE, earlier this month. The single is titled Pabst Blue Rhythm and is paired with a video-game inspired music video directed by  artist Brandon Kempisty.

The song, with a title referencing cheap beer, is a driving psychedelic rock track with wailing guitar solos and crashing drums. The video features videogame-ized sprites of the  band members, who’ve been sucked into a Q-Bert video game machine and eventually spat out inside of Downtown Buffalo bar, Lockhouse Distillery where the band regroups for a much needed shot of vodka. Catch Witty Tarbox at their EP release show this Saturday, April 28 at Nietzsche’s.
