Minipop: Like I Do

If I’m not mistaken I believe San Francisco indie quartet, Minipop, closed out my South by Southwest 45+ band experience earlier this year in Austin. This picture was taken at Bourbon Rocks during the SFxSXSW party on March 15 around 1:30am in the morning as Minipop put the capper on the big show.

Like I Do is the first track on Minipop’s last full length album, A New Hope, which was released late last year on independent, Take Root Records.  The song is a lush offering of dream-pop and comes to animated life in the beautiful dreamscape created by director Andrew Huang.  The video is half live action (less A-Ha, heavier on Smashing Pumpkins), with a tad of Life of Brian-like animation thrown in (e.g. spaceship scooping up bandmates). Its by far one of the best I’ve seen this year.

You can pick up A New Hope and this track at itunes or e-music.
