BASEMENT JAXX: Take Me Back To Your House

This single would not be my choice as the second release from the Crazy Itch Radio album (the collaboration with Swedish pop singer Robyn is far funkier), but here it is with a freshly minted music video. Directed by Dougal Wilson, the Russian Cossack vaudville Siberian nightclub theme works well. The plunky banjo lends to a folksy feel, and the video treatment runs with it, complete with dancing bears, Cossack dancing, and Borat styled characters. My favourite scene is the coat check, when our heroine has roughly five layers of furs to schlep out. It's almost exactly how I remember nightclubbing in Edmonton... Watch the music video (qt).
