Dedicated blog readers will have already seen the band's video for "All My Friends". Featuring some of your favorite forgotten stars of your Nickelodeon days, it's popped up on a number of blogs -- including Stereogum and Oh My Rockness. Then we/I suggested them for DCist's Unbuckled show earlier this July, and that was a huge hit. And today they're featured on Spin.com as the Band of the Day, complete with a glowing writeup that very much echoes and even kinda mimicks our own praise.
Here's that video for "All My Friends". Classic.
