Mudhoney's new single "I Like it Small" pays tribute to living within one's means with reckless aplomb. In its lyrics, frontman Mark Arm happily praises, "minimum production," "intimate settings," and "dingy basements," and its Carlos López -directed video clearly takes its cues from those lines. What seems like an ordinary performance clip quickly evolves as various props and people are used to illustrate Arm's points along the way, with an especially gross shout-out to GG Allin followed by a handful of wardrobe changes, one bona fide pants-ing, and a very tiny piano solo. Mudhoney's new one, Vanishing Pointarrives today (April 2) on Sub Pop, who just celebrated their 25th year as a label. The band hits the road in fewer than two weeks, and are sharing some June dates with SPIN Breaking Out stars METZ.
