VIDEO PREMIERE: SEND MEDICINE “BABY’S COAST”

May 23rd, 2016 | News

L.A.’s Send Medicine go on a desert weekender the hard way in their new video, in which this zoney-stoney song from their Scary Aquarius Daughter full-length becomes a soundtrack for two easy-slider dudes just trying to make it to wherever they’re going … which kinda turns out to be nowhere, but then that can sometimes be pretty fun anyway, right? Send Medicine—actually a five piece, despite appearing as a duo and also shirtless in the video—play Wed., May 25, at the Bootleg and they’ll be doing a mini-tour this summer, too. Dates and some gently gonzoid insight on the video from singer/percussionist/thereminist Ryan Glennan below:

“Uncle Jules and I pulled into a convenience store just off Highway 14. We were clearly outsiders in this part of the Mojave. I took off the last remaining pieces of the Santa Claus outfit I had been wearing. No need to bring any additional attention our way. There were two young men shopping inside. They had shaved heads and were openly carrying handguns on their hip. We grabbed a bottle of wine (Uncle Grandma Juice) and a pack of beef jerky and got back on the road.

It was around 1 PM when we made it to Stovepipe Wells and saw the dunes in the distance. We parked my car on the side of the road, filled our arms with camping supplies and liquor and started our trek on foot. After journeying for a few miles, we stumbled upon a group of beautiful young wizards and fairies, sitting cross legged around an American Flag. Sage bundles were burning slowly in the desert wind. They suggested we abandon our belongings and join them in their ceremony. We accepted the invitation. They began speaking in tongues and graciously passed around an aluminum thermos filled with what we would soon discover to be some psychoactive concoction. I chased it down with a few pulls of tequila.

We continued onward, leaving our new friends sitting in the same circle in which we found them. Uncle Jules pointed North, towards a distant field of citrus colored wildflowers. “Do you think she’ll be there?” he asked. There was only one way to know for sure …”
