Back in December when I blogged Mac DeMarco's latest Christmas cover song, I said Song of the Days will be making a full-time return in 2021. Now February is more than 64% complete and I have yet to bring a daily taste of tunes to this publication. That changes today!
Thanks to Youtube and its recommendation algorithm that I normally try to avoid to still have power over the computers, I came across this video last night and couldn't not click.
I fuckin love Oliver Tree and his whole bowl-cut, scooter ridin, pink and purple montbell swag while making some weird ass, but catchy tunes. I bought one of his shirts in a 3 for lets call it, $35 deal at Hot Topic with Taking Back Sunday and Fleetwood Mac like two years ago in a three shirt combination that I doubt has since been replicated. As for Lil Yatchy, I don't listen to any of his music (all I know is Minnesota), but I'm aware that he's is a living, breathing rapper who has fun with it and doesn't take himself too seriously, so I fuck with him in that respect. Think of it as a Hansel and Sting situation and in this spot, I am Hansel.
Oliver Tree directed this video and even if the intro didn't spill the beans, it's the most obvious thing of all time. The fisheye scene with exaggerated running when Oliver is being chased by Yatchy is textbook Oliver Tree. This video has everything; waterless fishing, sidecars and plenty of pink plaid. I'll let you watch and come up with your own takes. Enjoy :)
