One of the more solid local punk releases from 2014 was Rad Payoff’s The Good, the Rad & the Ugly, which dropped back in March via Let’s Pretend Records (I actually wrote about in preparation for last year’s Ian’s Party). The album not only sports a blend of supremely gruff, uppercut-punch punk in the vein of Andy Falkous-sponsored projects like Mclusky and Future of the Left, it also promotes a weird, beer-and-weed-fueled vibe—or whatever out-there, masked/caped antics are occurring in the brand-spanking-new video for “Sunglasses,” which the Reader is fortunate enough to premiere today. Check out the fun below and check out Rad Payoff on Sun 1/4 at Quenchers as part of Ian’s Party, the 2015 version.
