I’ve been sold on PAPA since seeing them last January in an opening slot for Handsome Furs. After releasing a great EP, A Good Woman Is Hard to Find, in late 2011 â€“ listen to it, for God’s sake â€“ Darren Weiss (ex-Girls) and Daniel Presant are allegedly (hopefully) due to release their full-length debut sometime this year.
Presumably, “Put Me To Work” will be on that. They released the song in October and now have given it a visual companion, directed by Jonathan Hausfater, who’s also responsible for two previous PAPA videos. As noted on Buzzbands.la, the video took an inspirational cue from the â€™90s Nickelodeon TV series Pete and Pete. Weiss said they wanted â€œto make it funny, sad, strange, and beautiful.â€
See for yourself.
Worth noting: PAPA was added as support for Matt and Kim’s show on March 9 at Marquee Theatre in Tempe.
