Nearly every weekend, as SPIN.com traverses the U.S. to cover the many festivals this summer, we cross paths with a number of the most politically-minded names in music, giving each a chance to smile for the camera and sound off on the 2008 presidential election. The latest: Big Apple-based up-and-comers the Postelles, who, while lounging at Chicago’s Lollapalooza festival, stepped forward to discuss the most pressing issues in this decisive election year.

Below, watch video of the fresh-faced, Strokes-approved foursome speaking to SPIN.com about paying taxes under a new president.
