Adding to the already-long list of reasons to love tUnE-yArDs, here's the band's new video for "My Country" (directed by Mimi Cave, who was also responsible for this clip for "Bizness"). The kids in the video come from Brightworks and the SF Rock Project, and the band has also launched a Kickstarter project to get an instrument lending library started for the Rock Project.

tUnE-yArDs' spring and summer touring includes that live scoring gig at the SFIFF on April 23rd and a co-headlining date at the Fox with St. Vincent on the 24th. More details below.
