Stepdad’s “My Leather, My Fur, My Nails” is a wacky 8-bit anthem packaged and ready for pop domination. The Grand Rapids trio takes electro-pop to the extreme, backing infectious but biting lyrics with some fuzzy, light-hearted synths pulled straight out of Kirby’s Dreamland. The band recently released a visual treatment for the jam, rivaling MGMT’s “Time to Pretend” as the most delightfully trippy video ever. If Windows ’98 stayed out in the desert for a few more days after Burning Man, you’d get the mesmerizing video posted above. If you like what you hear, don’t forget to download the band’s Ordinaire EP for just a buck here.
