Premiere: Mines, “Hyperovercritical”

Chicago's Mines just released the fantastic and abrasive Just Another Thing That Got Ruined on Lake Paradise Records, and with it, we've been given the 16mm-shot video for "Hyperovercritical". In the tradition of over-the-top, caustic punk, the video works its wiles to take something that could in some lights be seen as beautiful or precious, and destroys it right before our eyes. The colors are so rich and vivid that it makes us think about those Jello molds in a whole new, more repulsive manner. We'll never eat that stuff with the same gusto again. (Did we ever?)
