I thought The Killers' had one of the best videos of 2017 with "The Man" but then today..

I've been listening to Spotify a bunch recently - but only for certain things. Basically, Spotify thinks I listen to nothing but Yacht Rock and 70s funk. I am no demographic that any advertiser wants to buy. I get a ton of ads for Spotify Premium because I'm a basic user and they have nothing else to sell me. Because I'm in Phoenix, it serves me up Spanish language ads half the time. Recently it's been advertising Christian rock streams to me (probably because of the influence of Michael Omartian on Yacht Rock, which means there are a couple of low-key Christian rock songs in the Yacht Rock channel), and last week it even sent me advertisements from the New York State Department of Health trying to get me to sign up for Obamacare before December 15. Keep in mind, I'm streaming this in Phoenix in January - so their targeting is a just a *bit* off.

Then today, Spotify throws me a commercial for a new Chromeo record. And I basically had to stop what I was doing and go find it. Regrettably it's not out yet, but they pre-released this awesome track on YouTube. The song's lyrics are typical Chromeo - you're out with a hot girl on a date, and everyone else in the bar is buying her drinks because she's too hot to be with you.

But Chromeo also has a typical video - lots and lots of leggy models, shot exploitatively from low camera angles. This is their first video in a few years, and they've decided to do something in response to the criticism that their videos are sexist. Their solution is really innovative.

I just found it today, but having streamed it all afternoon I can safely say this would have been on my #Bestof2017 list. I can't wait for the album.
