XYZ Affair “Evening Life” (Self Released, 2008)

Yeah, it’s not as cool as the Nickelodeon-star-studded vid for “All My Friends” (featuring an angry Marc Summers and very grunge looking Budnick from “Salute Your Shorts”). And yeah, it’s a bit on the OK Go side, with all it’s synchronized dancing and shit. But, still, XYZ Affair’s new clip for “Evening Life” wins because it provides us with tight, choreographed nods to Motown greats like the Temptations, while pop ‘n locking lead singer Alex Feder sings about Minor Threat ruining his Saturdays, doing his best Timberlake impression along the way. And if you can dance better than Boyz II Men while sounding like a weird combination of Sufjan Stevens, Jellyfish, and some random, nameless emo band, well then their follow up video to the minor masterpiece “All My Friends” is surely worth a look. — Ryan Allen
