Austin’s Sweet Spirit have already caught the attention of Spoon frontman Britt Daniel, who recently brought the band on tour and collaborated on a 7? that features “Have Mercy” and a cover of Spoon’s “Paper Tiger.” Now, they return with a vaudeville-style video for their self-titled EP track “Baby Doll,” directed by John Valley. It’s an envious love song with one of the best scheming verses of advice - “Gotta make friends with the pretty girls/ ‘Cause then when their boyfriends get tired of them, they’ll come to me.” The video features a cross-dressing, Sweet Spirit-obsessed fan, as he sings to a group of tied-up beauties. It’s very Silence Of The Lambs, but in a burlesque setting. -- Stereogum
