The Fresh & Onlys: "Presence of Mind"

"Presence of Mind" represents that early New Wave promise: catchy, melodic tunes meant not so much to supplement pop music as to supplant the withered husk of it altogether. The video also recalls that early MTV era, where z-budgets coupled with the knowledge that the channel would play anything just to fill 24 hours of programming resulted in some bizarre clips which probably would have lost 90% of their charm if any real thought had gone into them.

Mexican Summer remembers that halcyon era.
