This morning the cool, classy cats in MYSTERY ROAR released a smooth new single, "Overboard," available for the name-yo'-price download over on Bandcamp. The release also features a break-down remix of their dope jam "Fantasies," courtesy of Tuck Digz, who can be found around town drumming like a beast for Cambridge sky-gaze trio Endless Wave.
As an added treat, and to get us even more worked up for the 'Roar's next show May 7 at Great Scott with Big Digits, they passed us, under the lunch table in the caf all sneaky-like, the accompanying video for "Overboard," which was directed/edited by DJ/VJ Crag MacNeil of Videodrome Discotheque, the Allston-based vintage-pop party that just last week took home "Best Dance Night: Monthly/Bi-Weekly" in our Best 2011 readers' poll.
The grainy visuals are true MacNeil, using his bottomless archive of old-school images and clips to bring this silky Mystery Roar track back into the retro-future from which it came. Get into it, sailor.
