Watch Beth Ditto and Gossip's New Video!

We're no stranger to gossip 'round here, but my absolute favorite type is Gossip, the Beth Ditto-fronted indie rock trio from Washington.

I wish their last brilliant offering, last year's Music for Men, had received more fanfare (for some reason they’re much bigger in the U.K., where they always "get" new tunes much quicker than on our sonically puritanical shores). But no worries: new fans are discovering them every day. Luckily, Ditto and the boys just put out their next video for the CD's third single, "Pop Goes the World." It's pure Eighties-style mayhem in the vein of many of the current clips gracing Vevo, from Rihanna's "Rude Boy" to last year's Yeah Yeah Yeah's spate of vids.

Check out the video above and get ready for the band’s next New York City gig at Terminal 5 on August 30! Meet me there.
