Without a doubt, Natural Fool by Li'l Cap'n Travis of Austin, Texas is the most addictive music video I've seen in years, maybe ever. The song's alluring melody is fortified by irresistible vocal harmonies, a swirling organ and the perfect combination of country and psychedelic pop influences.
And the video footage (apparently circa 1968 or so) of kids tooling around on bikes while wearing crazy ape masks is positively surreal. I've been trying to figure out where the hell it could possibly have come from, but I have no clue. Anyone want to fill me in?
Li'l Cap'n Travis will be appearing at the Hole In The Wall in Austin on July 17.
