It's been awhile since we've heard from Los Angeles' The Hollow Trees, more than five years since the release of Wacky's Tackle. But thankfully they're back with a new album of Americana- and Tin Pan Alley-inflected originals and covers, Hello Friend, and in anticipation of the album release on July 1, they've got a new video.
The video's for "I Can't Dance (I've Got Ants in My Pants)," a jazz tune dating back to the '30s (at least). The Hollow Trees' version zips along nicely, and I suspect that between the song and the video, featuring lots of public domain clips of dancing of all sorts, some member of your household will be encouraged to dance in some way, for non-formicidaeical reason. In any case, enjoy this world premiere video!
