Black Joe Lewis gets his ham glazed

Finally Literature has a challenger for local music video of the year. Black Joe Lewis gets Scandalous in 2-D, visiting “Mustang Ranch” to get his ham glazed with his Honeybears. The brilliantly animated video even features a cartoon cameo from producer Jim Eno of Spoon. For more on the band’s red light special, check out “Come and Take It.”

Erin Ivey’s never one for subtlety. In this highlight from her new album, Broken Gold, Austin’s Golden Girl stretches chocolate metaphors across four minutes and two languages.

League of Extraordinary G’z “Yes He Is”
Austin’s round table hustlers dropped the third and best installment of its Concealed Weapons mixtape series earlier this summer, showcased here with the spitfire roulette of “Yes He Is.”

Explosions in the Sky “Postcard from 1952”
