Music Video Theater: Silver Jews – “Random Rules”

In the late 80s Silver Jews was formed by David BermanĀ and Stephen Malkmus (who would also start Pavement around the same time). The band sounded like what the National tried to sound like early in their career: lo-fi alt-country with a dry vocalist singing clever lyrics about mundane middle class life.

“Random Rules” is a Silver Jews song I particular like, especially the lyrics. This is the 90s at its finest (and most flannel).
