Video : Red Jacket Mine : Listen Up (If the World is Going to Hell)

Everyone loves singles, right? Well brace yourself, Martha, cuz Red Jacket Mine have gotten in cahoots with Fin Records to drop a series of limited edition vinyl 7-inchers leading up to the release of their full-length debut. Lincoln Barr is the main man behind Red Jacket Mine, and based on the little I’ve heard, he’s a chap who has a stack of well-worn early Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello platters lurking in the basement.

Still, with the sheer number of submissions we get every day, it would have been easy to miss the smoothly grooverific Listen Up (If the World is Going to Hell) if not for the video. Because, if there’s two things that MOKB can always get behind, it’s animals in people clothes, and people in animal clothes.

I should also mention that Barr is showing no signs of letting up. On May 29th, Bellar and Bawl b/w Grow Your Own will become your latest morsel of RJM’s ear candy to hit retailers, but we’re giving you a taste a week early.
